    Amazon vendors & import fees

    I was eyeballing some of the bikes sold by BIKESTER-COM through Amazon, and was wondering if any of you US citizens have any experience with them?

    In their shipping policies section it states, "Within the U.S. you will not have to pay any fees other than the price indicated on Amazon." I'm fairly certain that this is a German company. How can they offer this guarantee when shipping items like bicycles to the states? What about duty fees?

    Amazon.com At a Glance: BIKESTER-COM

    The company may have a physical presence (an office) in the US and can avoid customs and duties.

    That could be it, I suppose.

    I was considering them as an option. They have good feedback on Amazon, but they are taking way too long to respond to my inquiries. Guess I'll look elsewhere.
