I'm considering ordering a wheelset from Pro Bike. How fast is shipping typically from the UK? Also, what's the story with customs charges once the item reaches the States? Am I going to get stuck paying $50 worth of customs on a $225 wheelset?

Are wheels too fragile to be ordering from overseas?

thanks for any advice

RJ80,
No, wheels are fine to ship.

It's very rare for duty to be assessed on a private individual as long as shipping is via Royal Mail and US Postal Service. Don't ever use UPS or fedex, they WILL collect duties AND will charge a hefty "brokerage" fee.

In the unlikely case you get selected for a duty, i think it's something like 8%.
