    Default Cost of a hybrid bicycle in Santo Domingo

    Does anyone have an idea of the cost of a hybrid bicycle in Santo Domingo or where there is a bicycle store I can go check prices? I am considering shipping my bicycle down from the USA but the airline charges $200 to ship and $40 for the cardboard box which isn't too bad. My concern is once it is here will I get charged import taxes?

    I am only two blocks from the malecon so a safe place to ride is no problem.

    As far as I know it is a electric bike with pedals also known as a e-bike....on the other hand it might be a moped, power assisted bike

    Not quite, it is a mix of a mountain bike and a racing bike. The bike is not really for off road riding and not a bike for racing. More of a ride and cruise type of bike.

    Actually on the malecon early morning or just after the sun goes down you see a lot of people riding bikes.

    They are "Purse Snatchers", looking for "Touristas"!
    I THINK you realize the danger.

    Even at 6AM it's dangerous. I remember the story of a woman who was running on the sidewalk on Malecon at 6 AM and she was hit by police vehicle and seriously injured. The driver said he just fell asleep at the wheel, so it was not his fault, as always.

    In the "No Es Mi CULPA" vein, The best excuse I EVER heard from a Dominican driver who killed several people in a car "Accident", was,
    "It was not my fault, I was DRUNK"!!!

    The GUN killed her, not ME!!!
    "FISH", "Great Minds"?????
    Run Together!!!

    Does anyone even live near the malecon in Santo Domingo to know what goes on there on a daily basis?
