Riding down the Pacific Coast we ran into a lad called Roy from Belfast who had bought a bike over here for his trip. He claimed to have picked up an brand new aluminum frame Specialized of some kind for $400 (which I find hard to believe). Sorry I didn't pay too much attention to it. It was nice enough rig with a rack. Don't forget your pedals, that can save you $80, and saddle if you have a nice one and bring your own panniers. It definitely looks to be cheaper than bringing your own bike. You can spend a lot of money on S & S couplings and get something that will squeeze under the suitcase limits but that's a lot of hassle.
