Leif just sent me a picture of his new Mercurio Cargo Bike, purchased in Nogales. Below is his account of his adventure. He got his for about $35.00 less than Lauren and I paid for ours. Like we did, it appears he rode it right out of the shop and across the border.
I retrieved a Mercurio today. VH didn’t have them today, but Coppel (another department store a few blocks further south) did. Price = $USD 186 after 10% discount due to scratches and blemishes on the new product. I agree it was pretty squirrely to ride back to the border, but that was really fun, all the same. I’m hoping I can upgrade some of the components on it becasue they seem highly unreliable, and also make multiple modifications. Like a need another project. Anyway, I’m really excited to have finally gotten one of these.
Just remember, ride these things carefully! They flip in a heartbeat . . . .
