+1 to what dirkdiggler is saying. I'll never do ocean freight again. The hidden costs of storage, warehouse handling fees, trucking, etc REALLY add up. By the time you're riding your bike again it's easy to pay double what you were originally quoted. Also, once you factor in the cost of food and accommodation for the extra time it takes, air freight becomes a no-brainer.
