    upcoming inbred purchase, US or UK

    I'm planning an inbred purchase, i see that frames are significantly cheaper on the UK site, and i believe shipping is reasonable. Has anyone purchased directly from On One(UK site) instead of going through the US site, and if so, were there any issues. I appreciate any info,thanks

    I bought mine from the UK store. Shipping was reasonable and there were no VAT, customs fees or issues.

    bumping this as I'm considering doing the same. The fatty is cheaper from the UK than the US. You had no duty fees on import or after the fact? I wonder why the US store is more expensive...

    Complete bikes usually are dutiable. Not 100% sure for the US but 13% duty for Canada.
    I wanted to buy a fatty too but by the time I paid shipping and duty, it was so close to the cost of a Pugsley, it was just easier (and much faster) to just go to the store and get one.

    A frame is considered bicycle parts and is duty free. You may or may not get hit with taxes. A complete bicycle is dutiable. I checked and it is 11% in the US.

    Mine arrived at my door in less than 10 days from the UK, no extra fees. You always do risk taxes though; if it is more than 20 quid cheaper from the UK, I would go for it, and get other on-one stuff in the order; anything less and I'd just stay in the US.
    Suspension and gears are the bastion of the proletariat.
