If y'all are both near REI locations, be aware, if you are not already (therefore simply a reminder : ), that REI will ship REI to REI, as well as 're-assemble.'

If you are referring to the old policy of them shipping on the cheap using their distribution channel store to store I am pretty sure they no longer do that.  When I tried to use their shipping they weren't able to help me.  My memory is a little foggy on the details, but I think that was in Denver in 1012, but it may have been a different trip.  As I recall they seemed to think that their inability to ship via their network was a recent change.  In fact the clerk seemed to initially think the policy was still in effect until he tried to get his boss to sign off on it.

I think they said they could pack it for a fee and ship via UPS for full UPS charges.  I don't think I was even getting their reduced rate.  As I recall they weren't particularly cheap for the packing and I declined.  If I remember correctly it was more than I usually have paid at local bike shops when you factored in the packing and shipping fees.

Things were better at REI immediately before then and for all I know may be better again now, but what I was offered on that day at that REI was not an especially good deal.

The clerk did give me a bike box.  I think he said he was supposed to charge me for it but didn't.

I'm just waiting...

And, what do you mean by an “extension”. Is that the thing that comes off the front, and is it removable?  This would make shipping much easier...

The extension is really a fork, 28" sized that attaches to the Bob cart. The Bob Ibex we have has the shorter fork.

Thanks!

Update - Found one! Thank you anyway!

It is about 11 years old.  I mostly used it for commuting , maybe 40 miles per week.
