Hi McJennifer: I shipped over two bicycles and have bought one in San Pedro. The two most important issues regarding bicycles on San Pedro are 1. the wheels and body are made of aluminum (steel rusts) and 2. a nice color. A good 1 speed Korean bicycle called Hurricane(s), are good and dependable if you get the variety with Stainless steel wheels. They cost about $150 US and look good in either blue or red. Don't know any reason to have a mountain bike, as we have no mountains.
