Moving to Germany from the U.S.

I'm moving to Germany from the U.S. in six weeks, and I'm looking for advice from anyone who has done something similar. This thread
has been somewhat helpful, but a little too focused on immigration issues (I don't expect a problem with this). [more inside]

I have a girlfriend who is a citizen, which will be a great help. But I'm wondering about things like:
- What is the best method for shipping things overseas?
- Would it be worth it to bring US-made electrical devices like computers and rely on power converters, or better to just sell my equipment and buy new stuff there?
- Can I bring a road bike as carry-on luggage?
Any and all thoughts or comments would be helpful.
