Probikekit shipping

Hey all, thinking about pulling the trigger on a colnago frameset from Probikekit. The prices are cheaper than anywhere else (esp USA LBS) by over $400.

Has anyone used probikekit before? Are there import fees? taxes? I can't find any relevant information on the website that gives me some hard numbers.

(This would be shipped to the USA).

I have used PBK a number of times and have been very pleased with them. Never charged any additional fees.

I bought Ortlib panniers from them. No extra charge and great service. There might be a slight difference which they clearly warn about the bank credit card charge when the exchange rate is run by the card (but minor difference).

Bike may be different.

PS: search for online coupon codes and try to save some extra money

I bought a Selle Italia saddle from them which was cheaper than domestic retailers even with shipping costs. No import fees or taxes. ymmv
