|seem to be the best deals. Parker's price is lower, but its shipping is twice as much (about $60). Duty will likely run about $30. With Parker, you calculate the US$ price by removing VAT (multiply by .851) and then converting from British pounds to dollars. I did this two weeks ago, so these numbers may be off: |
Parker: US$490 + 60 shipping + 30 duty = $580
TC: US$570 + 30 shipping + 30 duty = $630
A main problem these days is the weak dollar. You may find a better deal on ebay. Also check WCP.
By the way, I had the original Ksyriums and loved them. I just gave them to my son for his 16th birthday, so I needed a new pair of wheels. I ended up buying the Campy Eurus instead of the SLs. They are light, but I think they are less comfortable than the Ks on rough roads. I am now thinking about getting a pair of Ks also.

|I was just at the Hilly 100 in Bloomington, IN and Bicycledoctor had them on sale for less than $600. It may have been a special for the ride but you could give them a call to see. Their site: http://www.bloomington.in.us/~bikedoc/

|I see Xpedia is listing them at $520 and Maestro at $529. I don't know about the shipping costs for a wheelset for either of these guys.
I have purchased from Maestro and would recommend them. I have heard of a couple positive experiences from others who have dealt with Xpedia (don't recall any negative feedback), but don't really know a whole lot about these guys.
