Any bike shops in SJPDP?

Time of past OR future Camino
Planned: 2023 July-August
Greetings, everyone!
I am planning to cycle the French route in July/August 2023 from St Jean to Santiago, maybe to Muxia. It would be quite difficult to ship my bike from home and I find bike rentals quite expensive. I thought I may buy a cheap MTB in St. Jean and sell/donate it in Santiago. Do you know any second hand or cheap bike stores in or around St. Jean?
Alternatively, I may walk to Pamplona and get a bike there, I found a good second hand bike shop there...
 
Very light, comfortable and compressible poncho. Specially designed for protection against water for any activity.

Our Atmospheric H30 poncho offers lightness and waterproofness. Easily compressible and made with our Waterproof fabric, its heat-sealed interior seams guarantee its waterproofness. Includes carrying bag.

€60,-
A quick search on Godgle shows there are a couple of bike stores:


and this one in Bayonne: https://www.cycles-passion-adour.fr/
Yo, Tinker have you found the secret track line in the Harry Potter novels? Godgle, it must be something special or just a secret for pilgrims.
 
New Original Camino Gear Designed Especially with The Modern Peregrino In Mind!
Salutations à tous!
Je prévois de parcourir la route française à vélo en juillet/août 2023 de St Jean à Santiago, peut-être à Muxia. Il serait assez difficile d’expédier mon vélo de chez moi et je trouve la location de vélo assez chère. J’ai pensé que je pourrais acheter un VTT bon marché à Saint-Jean et le vendre / donner à Santiago. Connaissez-vous des magasins de vélos d’occasion ou bon marché dans ou autour de Saint-Jean?
Sinon, je peux marcher jusqu’à Pampelune et y prendre un vélo, j’y ai trouvé un bon magasin de vélos d’occasion...
Quel est votre budget ?

I'm flying with my bike from Canada to London; the bike costs an extra C$50. (I presume flying to France would be similar in cost, but I have family to visit in the UK) I'll set off for my camino, riding from London, in early April. I'd rather have the 'hassle' of packing the bike and the small extra charge (which you could easily eat up looking for a suitable bike, not to mention the time spent) to have a bike I know is suited to the task and that I have toured on before. This is not an answer to your question but may be worthy of consideration. Also, I have flown across the Atlantic with a bike half a dozen times and also three times from London to Delhi, plus a few other shorter trips, and never had a bike-related issue.

hope you don't mind me posting this on here but I thought it may be of use to someone who may wish to cycle the Camino Frances this spring without the added planning of shipping their own bike or...
Excited to be doing the Camino solo and meeting people along the way. A long time cyclist, and 50+ thought I'd take my time, and let the bike do the carrying. Will most likely Rent a bike, but am...
