I've made my decicion as to which wheels I'm buying (finally right?) and I want to get them from out of the UK.
Their site says...
"Delivery time for wheels to North America is 3-5 working days. Most orders are sent to North America by FedEx 48 Hr service."
Is this consistant with the experiences that US buyers have had with Totalcycling? I cannot buy wheels from them if it is likely to take 2-3 weeks for them to get here. I'll be out of town.

I don't know about delivery times on wheels but I have ordered shoes and tires from them and received them in 4-5 days. Also they deliver via DHL now not Fed Ex.

Just ordered some stuff frome them via DHL. Sitting on the step in Seattle two days later. Be sure and leave a signed note authorizing driver to leave since I think they came sig required. I believe the shipping charge was $22.

It took them a day or two to process the order, but from the time they shipped to the time it arrived at my door - two days. And you can't beat the price, even with a $22 shipping charge.

Wheels: sent 6/1, arrived (CA): 6/13. They have yet another company that does their wheel deliveries now, Parcel Force. I was surprised at the time it took after hearing of others' 3-4 day experiences. The guy that brought them in was plain old USPS. Bottom line, less than two weeks, can't whine too much.
Note: it's a good idea to forwarn your credit card company otherwise they might refuse the charge, then you have to take time out to 'phone them and do the whole "mother's maiden name" routine. Then re-contact Totalcycling and have them run your card again. All of which will add a day or two to the turn around time. PIA.
