    Look up backhaul LTL shippers. You might be close on making weight (some companies wonít ship less than 150-200 lbs), and the receiver will need to catch it on the other end (door to door costs more), but it can be pretty economical depending. If youíre flexible with when it needs to go out you can save money over FedEx for sure. LTL kinda sucks for drivers, but itís better pay than deadheading, and thereís plenty of SEA-SLC traffic.

    Check bike flights. Assuming youíd end up in the 50-100lbs and a ďbike boxĒ sized box, theyíll be the cheapest.

    I just shipped my wifeís MTB for $80 through them on FedEx. FedEx quoted me $330

    multiple boxes same shipment, same address... fedex ground.
    Use fedex tubes if no clamps.
