You can either have it shipped to a company that forwards packages across the border or you can pick it up at the closest UPS to you across the border

the cranks and wheelset is better on the pro.
out of those it would be bewteen the iro and kilo to me
a good option would be buy stock kilo and sell the wheels and spend a bit extra on a better wheelset and cranks and youll basically have a "pro", or better

What would a better crank/ wheel do and how would that benefit?

They would last longer... and provide a better experience/ ride. Safer.

The company that will forward you the package thing is a bit complicated and it can be quite expensive but picking it up on the other side of the border is super easy depending on where you live. I'm in Toronto so it's about 1.5 hrs each way.

...OH OUI!! ...i think they've only started mailing chez nous this year..? Email them directly... you'll probably be communicating with jeff, who did inform me that while no man can be an island... sometimes he feels like he is alone on one...

Yeah you're right on the handlebars. I changed the fork to get clearance to run 25 tires. I put them on with the old fork and they were rubbing. I've since changed it a bit including cutting the saddle. I'll post pics soon.
