More like cruisers with coaster brakes. Out of the hundreds that we saw there were only a few mountain/hybrid type bikes with gearing or hand brakes.

Then again there are no hills at all so gearing is totally unnecessary.

No fenders on most either so prepare for a nice coating of whatever the tires fling up

There nothing to get excited about but after a large dose of Belikins, stick a couple playing cards in the spokes & ride your hog home :p laugh LOL

It is very hard on mountain or hybrids. The few mountain bikes you see are pampered by their owners. Some nice cruisers though and as someone pointed out, it's flat.

Rusty! At least mine is but it's survived over 2 years of outdoor storage and still goes when needed.

Sounds good to me. How much does a cruiser rent for? Hope Debo off the Movie Friday isn't cruising the island

"no hills at all"

There are dozens of them on the roads all over town, all about 6" high, don't hit them going to fast! :rolleyes:

I heard about a guy that hit one of those "hills" and broke the front fork on his bike. Ouch!

Joe's Bike shop on the corner of Middle ST and Caribena rents bikes for about $5/day (cheaper if you rent for longer). And many of the hotels have their own bike rentals or let guests use them for free

Can anyone tell me about drink/ beverage prices in AC? We are coming in August and I'm wondering what to expect as far as food/ beverages...

Not sure what this has to do with bikes but...

$3BZ to $8BZ(Ramon's) for a beer.
$4BZ to $8BZ(Ramon's) for a local rum drink.
$3BZ for a Burrito to $65BZ for a USDA New York.

In other words as cheap as you want and as much as you want.
