Maestro - Good to do business with?hulksmash

Okay, I just checked out their website and found out how great a deal I can get through them. Like, More than half of what I'd pay stateside. Too good a deal to pass up. Almost too good.

So has anyone ordered from them and had a good experience/bad experience? Are the frames and wheelsets pricy to ship or do you get hit up with duties that make the savings a wash? Any replies are greatly appreciated. Thanks!

I have bought two frames from them. Prompt service. The owner is very nice. It takes a frameset about 5-7 days to arrive. Shipping was around $100 plus +/-60 bucks for customs. I still found it a great deal. Also remember that their price has the VAT included. SO take that off the cost. (Somewhere around 10 to 15%)

Just bought a frame, wheelset and groupo. Cost $170 in shipping. It took one week to arrive and that was with a holiday in the middle. That was a month ago and I haven't received a customs duty billing yet, just a $30 customs processing fee from UPS. Keep in mind the shipper has nothing to do with the amount of customs duty charged.

The frame I ordered was not in stock and I was quoted 10 weeks to get it. My credit card was not charged until it was shipped. It took exactly 10 weeks as quoted. Mike, the owner seems to be quite straight forward and honest.
