Cap your axles with anything, but I use water caps or bottle caps. Cap the drop outs as well if you are shipping without the rear wheel(fed ex will bend your drop outs!)

Re: How to Pack & Ship BMX Stuff

SAVE THE PITBULLS!!!! Best way to pack a pit.

Add the spacer to the pivot bolt that way you can tighten down/ secure the adjuster arm. Turn pads sideways.

Re: How to Pack & Ship BMX Stuff

Darn straight. If you have no other choice to pack bars like that, place a 20 oz bottle cap on each bar end, hold it as best as you can then place a bubble flat rate envelope over each side. Then tape around the bottle caps to keep them secure. Place one in the middle as well, just cut the bottom off of the envelope and then slide the sleeve in the middle of the bars. Then tape the two side envelopes to the middle sleeve. I will post a picture next time I pack a pair. I don't pack them like this, but hey it can be done.
