Purchasing a bicycle in France

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are avid cyclists and are planning our 2nd Tour de France trip for 2013. In 2010 we took our bikes with us. It was a considerable amount to check our bikes as luggage to and from France, and we kept thinking that maybe for the next trip we could arrange to purchase bikes in France for our three week stay. Of course we could always rent, but the problem is location. We most likely will be starting in the Nice area and then ending up in the Alps, flying in and out of the nearest airport. Also, thought about selling back to a bike shop at the end of the trip. Has anyone had any experience purchasing bikes? And, selling?
