    Fees/duties buy bike in Canada & ship to USA

    To those who have purchased a bike in Canada (phone/web), and had it shipped to the US.....
    are there any duties/fees other than shipping fees (such as UPS)? The bike Im considering will be a custom road bike made in Canada--poss. around $3000-$4000.

    I've been given different info from 2 different shops...
    one says 'there are no tariffs/duties because of the free trade agreement'...
    another says 'there is a 6% duty of the total price of the bike'.

    I posted on roadbike forums but no definite answer yet...

    Thanks for your help!

    A related answer, but not exactly on point...

    I have bought plenty of XC ski stuff over the web from a few canadian shops, with $ amounts between $400 and $500. Not only did I pay no import duties, fees, tariffs, etc., but since I gave them a US shipping address, I didn't pay canadian taxes either.
