Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

derks Wielersport - Anybody ever order from them?

I have finally found a saddle that I have been hunting down for ages, but the problem is, it is from a dutch mailorder called https://www.derks-wielersport.nl/ . I'm wondering if anybody has any experience with ordering from them, especially Americans. Also, how much would you predict it would cost to ship a saddle? Will I have to deal with border fees and taxes, or will it ship right in?

Thanks

I dealt with them when I lived there. They are fine (as are almost all shops there).

I would expect a possible duty issue when they arrive, but it could not be much more than 10-20% I would think. Why not ask them?
