Import Duties on Wheelsets.

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

Import Duties on Wheelsets.

Does anyone know if I'm gonna get dinged for import duties on a $1000 wheelset buy from the United Kingdom? And If so, what is the percentage?

Yep, I got nailed for $80 on an $800 set earlier this year. Still much cheaper than US prices, even when you add in the duties.
