Anyone have problems with them and Customs demanding money for something like a $100 order of tires + cleats?

No. It’s below the threshold for duty.

I ordered tires from them on Saturday (13Jul) and they cleared customs in NY today. So I would guess about a week for you in NYC

This deal is literally half price vs the local bike stores. Hard to support local businesses when they are changing double the price.

Anyone have experience buying from Merlin and are in Canada? Did you get dinged with any duties?

Thanks.

yea, i bought multiple bikes from my LBS, do all my service there, referred 5x cyclists there. And they wouldn't negotiate "no tax" with me on a $40 specialized pump. It was a $3.50 discount. They also want $80 for Gp5000s and full msrp for literally every item in there. Gl w/ their business. I hope they do stay in business, but i'm not going to pay those prices
