A gigantic catch-all for Randonneuring (Audax), Bike-packing (Touring), and Commuting with or without E-bikes!

Hi everyone. I'm looking to ship my bike from California to Texas inside a Cannondale-branded soft-shell bike bag. It's similar to a SCICON Aerocomfort, and I was told they share the same OEM. I've travelled with it internationally several times (as a checked luggage) without any issue, but this time I won't be flying there until much later. Does anyone know what the best way to do it would be? Do the big shipping companies - UPS, FedEx, etc - offer shipping of something like this? Any insight is appreciated. Thanks!

I don't think a courier/postal service can be trusted with just a bike bag. If this was encased within a cardboard box, in the way they are used to handling parcels I think you will have better luck. a) with it arriving in one piece. b) couriers actually knowing how to lift/carry a box.
