Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

WheelandSprocket ebay shipping to CANada?

does anyone have experience with them shipping to canada? They have a couple items that are enticing me to do business with them, but I know sometimes getting products across the boarder can really suck sometimes..

experiences?

I dunno about Wheelandsprocket but Ben from Velomine.com (he has an ebay account as well) is pretty good about shipping. He ships everything via USPS so you won't pay massive brokerage fees with UPS. I just had a wheelset ordered from there and it cost me $35 shipping + about $16 in duties when it arrived. Not bad. Still cheaper than having a LBS around here build the same wheelset for me.

He even happily undervalued the wheelset for me (he normally does $100 for each one, but did $80 for mine) so I could save a few bucks.

Shipping for other items is even less. I know he ships B17s for free.
