    The insurance is the killer with any shipping service and generally doubles the price for me with bikeflights. That said, itís worth paying for and bikeflights is still the best deal in town.

    Is your fork 100 or 110 (boost)? Prolly 100 but maybe not. You need to measure it. That Sherman is likely 20x100, so if your wheel is 9mm QRx100 the adaptor I have *should* work.
