I'm back in Maine and wanted to let you all know I made it safe and my bike did as well. I will post more on that later with some photos. It was quite a feat getting it all in and under the size restrictions, but I managed and 0$ in extra fees and over 24 hours later I was back home. I did get a few suspicious looks (the box was very odd shaped) but I wasn't questioned further after telling them in was aluminum tubing. Even customs got me through quickly and easily.
I did have to dissemble one wheel and just take the rim with me. The extra width of the hub would have put me over size.
Merry Christmas all and Happy Newyear.
