Purchasing a bike

I have always rented a bike in Ixtapa but I am considering buying one this year. Where can I buy a decent bike? What can I expect to pay?

Bizihuanas is maybe the best stocked store. They understand a good bike from something that will not last.

Do map quest. They are in the downtown area.

They are a Trek Dealer so you will get a good bike for paved trails. High end bikes are not in inventory and cost more than you would pay in USA or Canada. If you have a favorite bike, bring it with you. Have a bike shop or REI box it for shipping for $65usd. Check baggage of sports equipt on Alaska Air is free. Claim it as a bike at customs and your out the door.

I just googled Bizihuanas and it says it is permanently closed. Is there anywhere else I could purchase a bike?

The bike rental place in Ixtapa also sells them, or at least they used to. We've been thinking about buying this year also, and maybe thinking about going with inexpensive ones in case they get stolen or damaged. So we thought maybe Sam's Club, Bodega Aurora or Sorriana would be places to look.

I thought they recently opened a new store on Avenida La Boquita near the Puente Blanco.

Real men don't ride "electric bikes".

Is that a reference to the guy on the pier in a wife beater a while back?
