    With a 40% import duty plus tax 7.5% for personal import, certainly wouldn't be cheaper for me.

    That's too bad. I kind of think it would be best to buy while in a different country. But, it's hard waiting for a bike once you get the 'buzz,' and the size difference isn't that great. Post pics when you receive it!

    If I had a business or personal trip planned to the US or Europe, I would most likely take that option, as the savings then would be worth it, and carry it back myself. I just have to think that the benefit is, if I need to make a warranty claim at some point, I have the local distributor to help, and don't have to try and manage things myself.

    Will for sure post when I get it!

    Private courier, always.
    Mail, maybe. You may or may not get hit.
    That's as precise as it gets.
    I didn't pay anything on two Dogmas via mail. Not even GST/PST. YMMV.

    Customs agents at the border might levy duty if he cannot prove he bought it locally.

    Canada Customs gives out a card/certificate with serial number and description of item. When I bring my bikes back they check it and let me through. One time they wanted to charge me duty on a camera that I didn't have a receipt for.

    Private courier=commercial businesses like FedEx, DHL, UPS, or Tiger.
    As opposed to government owned mail systems, mostly part of the UPU (Univeral Postal Union).
    Private couriers always collect every last bit of duty, sometimes more than they should, because the more they collect the more they keep. And by sometimes, I mean every chance they get.

    Well to update the thread, disappointingly my lbs called me up to say that the importer cancelled all orders of 2016 model bikes, as the 2017 models are due in 6 months at least I got my deposit back, and now considering to get an F8 frameset when I travel abroad later this year instead.
