Hello Randy & dusteel,
The cost for shipping is basically the cost that UPS charges us. We have added another shipping option, which is USPS First Class, which we will ship the bike mount in an envelope.
If you are interested in purchasing a bike mount with this discounted USPS First Class option, then please use coupon code USPSDISC, and it'll deduct $9 from the shipping cost at checkout. This coupon code will only work with the Bike Mount and only with USPS.
Let me know if you have any questions.
