Hi Guys,

Chainreactioncycles.com is having a sale on assorted Troy Lee Designs helmets, clothing, and accessories.

http://www.chainreactioncycles.com/ca/e ... MTczODM1S0

If you spend >149$ on clearance items (marked) you get an additional 20$ cdn off.

I just bought a 2015 TLD D2 helmet for 175$ CDN all in - free std ship to Vancouver BC,

Troy Lee Designs D2 Helmet - Galaxy Green 2015
Item# sku516866 $194.99 CAD
$20 Off $149 - 2016 Clearance Voucher (Canada) -$20.00 CAD
Subtotal $174.99 CAD
Total $174.99 CAD
Payment $174.99 CAD

I really like the fit of the D2s - I wish I could fit a D3 but they seem to use different sizing - no love for me.

I order from CRC.com regularly and find they are a reputable and responsive company. Never been dinged duty with the STD shipping (7-10 days)

**update - received my helmet yesterday - no duty - helmet properly declared

Just be aware that at $150 level, there is a high chance that Canada Customs will charge you duty on your package. On my last 2 orders, one made it through without customs delay and the second package was delayed 15 business days and assessed a duty charge of $63 on an original cost of $133 (after rebate).

That seems excessive - remember there is an appeal on the back of the customs form.

Heres a general guideline on Bike/parts coming into Canada and the tariff code:

8712.00.00 - Complete Bikes - 13%
8714.91.10 - Frame lugs, bottom bracket shells, forks, fork tubing sets, fork bearing assemblies, hydraulic shock absorbing cylinders, spring shock absorbers, rear pivots, cable stops, cable guides and back, chain and seat stays - 0%
8714.91.90 - Frames and forks and parts thereof, OTHER than the above - 5%
8714.92.00 - Wheel rims and spokes - 0%
8714.93.00 - Hubs, other than coaster braking hubs and hub brakes plus free-wheel sprocket wheels - 0%
8714.94.00 - Brakes, including coaster braking hubs and hub brakes plus parts thereof - 0%
8714.95.00 - Saddles - 0%
8714.96.00 - Pedals and crank-gear, and parts thereof (I'd put chainrings in here too) - 0%
8714.99.10 - Bicycle wheels (I'm assuming assembled) - 6.5%
8714.99.90 - OTHER bike parts - 0%

TLD is primarily known for their helmets. But sure they stamp their name onto clothing. The best deals IMHO for this sale are on the helmets.

If you go to the link you should see a big banner that says clothing and protection. Click on 'categorties' then 'protection' you should see some helmets.

Here's a link for you: http://www.chainreactioncycles.com/ca/e ... protection.

I have no idea what the other dude bought, Customs people don't properly apply the taxes and tarriffs all the time - it happens, so maybe he ordered a bunch of equipment? Trying to help him get some cash back...

I never said that you wouldn't get duties slapped on - just that I personally have not had to this date, had any duties applied.

Helmets are not subject to duty : look under 6506.10.1040 I believe......

Those percentages are the duty on those items. You would still be on the hook for HST/PST/GST for your province.

Also be aware that the shipper is responsible for choosing the HS code for the shipment, and if you saw the HS code list you'd see how easy it is to pick the wrong one. And Customs won't correct it; they'll just happily charge you the incorrect duty amount. So if you feel you've been overcharged for duty, check the codes and find the cheapest one that reasonably applies, contact Canada Customs, and get it fixed. They move slowly but they do refund overcharges if they believe your claim (thus choosing a code that "reasonably applies").

And yes, you always pay the tax, no matter where it comes from.

Sounds too me like they charged you thinking the $133 was GBP instead of CAD. This happened to me, and I've read it's pretty common. If you use the form on the back of the customs slip you'll be refunded the difference.

My order from Chain Reaction Cycles that I had to pay duty on was all clothing.

The Duty / Tax charged by Canada Post, from Credit Card (CPC SCP LL063892159CA), was $60.91

Order Subtotal: C$158.46 looks like I paid Duty / GST on the full $156.46
Order Discount: C$20.00
Order Total: C$138.46

http://www.cbsa-asfc.gc.ca/travel-voyag ... l-eng.html
Estimates my Duty fee to be $50.97
Add GST 158.46 * 0.05 = $7.93
I also believe Canada Post charges a 5 dollar brokerage fee.

So I would expect to pay around $50.97 + $7.93 + $5 = $63.89. Which is very close to what I actually paid.
It should be noted that if the clothes where manufactured under NAFTA then the Duty would be a lot less,around $19.

Canada Post has now upped their brokerage fee to $9.95.... :(

But at least they don't charge you an "advance" fee like the couriers do.

I've ordered about 50-60 packages in the past 3 years from CRC, Merlin, Wiggle, Ribble, Planet X and Pro Bike Kit. Mix of parts and clothing.

Never paid duty. Have been charged taxes twice. Once from Planet X in January (right after Christmas peak...CBSA has extra time?) for a $60 order. Got dinged tax + brokerage through Canada Post. And once from CRC where I ordered a long carbon handlebar and some clothing that totalled $250. Charged tax and $9.95 brokerage. No duty.

Ordered a seatpost from Art Cyclery in the U.S. $60 post, $15 shipping. $75 total. It shipped by FedEx ground (not Air...which charges less). Got a $35 bill from FedEx. had to pay tax, brokerage fee which is a "greater of" calculation. Plus an "advance" fee since they paid my taxes for me in advance. I called Fedex. They eliminated the advance fee as I argued with the operator that they were charging me ridiculous interest since I had to pay on delivery. So they were only "advancing" the $9 or so in taxes for a 24-48 hour period and charging me about the same for that service.
