I am looking at ordering a frame from a reputable dealer in Europe. Their price and shipping cost are very competitive. Can anyone comment on the likelyhood of duty/customs charges upon arrival to the US and what the % would likely be?

Also, try to AVOID shipping via UPS, FedEx, or DHL. They are likely to gouge you with trumped up "brokerage fees".

Uisng the government postal services will be just as reliable and significantly chepaer.

Thanks for the input. The link to the us customs site and ultimately being able to pull up the fee schedule was very helpful.

Bellatisport in Switzerland. Was looking at a Look 595 but just found out their order time from Look is 4 to 6 weeks.

I have ordered frames from him before and they were delivered by USPS, no fees, doesn't mean it will always be that way but...
