A friend who has what sounds like a heavy-ish folding mountain bike wants to join me for some rides, but doesn't want to lug the heavy beast around on trains. Any ideas how much takyubining it from Funabashi area to Machida area might cost?

Sorry, I don't have any dimensions or weight to hand - but I wondered if anyone knows a ball-park figure.

Thanks ...

I hear it's pretty expensive unless you are a member of the JCA and have its special delivery tag.
If not,the prices are between ¥6,000~13,000 according to its size for anywhere in the Kanto area.
If he boxes it up it might be cheaper.
