I'm thinking of ordering a set of Ksyrium Elites from this company based in Ireland. They state a US price of $368.00 plus shipping of $30. I can't figure out if there are further customs charges or not. If anyone has ordered from them, I would be interested in your comments on their service and how long the shipping takes to the US. In addition, looking for any feedback on the Ksyrium Elites from anyone who has been riding them. Thanks

it was still a bargain even with the shipping and customs fee. They were $600 shipped and I then had to pay the Mailman another $34 for customs. Actually it was $30 for customs and $4.50 for handling by the post office. Wheels are shipped via Parcel Force. They in turn hand off the package to the USPS. Can't beat their prices.

I paid ~$560 including shipping. Mine slipped right through without the other charges. I ordered them on a Sunday night and picked them up at the post office the following Thursday. Fwiw, they have been perfect the 3,000 or so miles I've ridden them.

I ordered the Elites and a saddle from them last March (nice wheels for non-racers on a budget like myself, btw). They arrived here in Texas in less than a week. The price charged to my visa was actually *less* than that advertised on the site. I think that the $ prices on the site are calculated according to exchange rate on the date they code the page, but if the interbank rate (the rate used to convert credit card transactions) is actually better, then you luck out. The wheels, a Selle Italia Trans Am, and shipping was only $420-something.
