Does anyone have any suggestions for transporting a bike from the US to Norway-somewhat economically :) Thanks
I researched this for a friend once and really there is no real economical means of getting the bike to Europe if not considered your personal baggage. Norwegian air charges 59 - 67 USD (online) 73 - 92 USD (airport) for taking a bike. Using a service such as https://app.luggageforward.com/, the cost is closer to 500 USD, one way.
I helped my friend buy a great touring bike in Europe and she took it back to the states. With a VAT declaration, you can get the taxes back, which range in Europe from 17-30%. I wouldn't recommend buying a bike in Norway though, Germany / Poland is much cheaper.
If you find a solution, please share with the community. have a great trip. Norway is a great cycling country.

I would probably check the various NON-USA airline websites to see what they charge. It is usually listed under "sports equipment". I "think" British Airways does not charge anything. Also, IF there is a charge AND the bicycle can be counted as a piece of luggage (thus no charge), it should be substantially cheaper to count the bike as luggage and the gear as a "third bag".
yes with BA the bike is part of your luggages ( 23 kg ) BUT you don't have anymore lugages except our hand luggage
if you can manage it why not ? but I think for norway you will have more than only a 7 kg little bag
