I will be flying into Frankfurt and then taking a train to Bescancon. I am trying to decide if I want to bring my boxed bike on the plane (which might then require that I assemble the bike prior to getting on the train to Besancon) or have the bike shipped directly to a bike shop in Besancon. Velosphere in Besancon has told me they will assemble it prior to my arrival.
It is not clear to me if I must assemble the bike prior to getting on the train in Frankfurt.
Any suggestions would be welcome.
