    It depends on the ship method. You can find such bikes from ebay.

    Hi, well I'm new to business since I'm only 14 years old, but anyways.


    I currently dropship some products to my eBay customers, but I'm looking to increase my profit.


    I'm into fixed gear bicycles and they are really popular right now. 


    I wanted to order some from China and maybe set up a brick and mortar store 

    (not online since shipping bikes is too expensive) or something on Craigslist, where I can have them pick it up.


    However, the bike costs $185 and shipping is $175. With that cost in total, I will barely make any profit. Are there any ways I can negotiate or get cheaper shipping from China to U.S?


    Also, can you recommend me some ways to sell my product? I'm going to set up a website and get some SEO done on it but is it hard to set up a small business?
