Custom-ordering Brompton to Calgary or Canada?

Hi all,
I was wondering if anyone has custom ordered a Brompton to this area. I don't think anyone carries them in Calgary (though correct me if I'm wrong), and I was wondering if anyone has had any luck ordering one. Is there even a shop anywhere in Canada that can custom ship me a Brompton?

Thanks,
Kevin

Thanks,
I did run across that site but those bikes cost as much with no options as the one I want, fully loaded from American shops. Since I will probably end up paying by American credit card, it may make more sense to just get it shipped up here, if they'll send it by some reasonable carrier.

Carries them in Okotoks. They've got two in stock, but they can order in whatever you like. Talk to Patrick he is very helpful.

They also carry Ortlieb and I think they'll be carrying Surly as well for 2008.

I believe duty is 13% these days, so add that on when buying from the States. And remember you will have to send it back to the states for warranty.
