Buting and selling bike in mid-east?
I'm thinking of touring through the middle east next spring, perhaps around Easter, but because of the distance (I'm in Australia) I don't want to ship a bike there and home again. I was wondering if anyone knew of any decent, trustworthy places where I could buy a bike (say in Turkey or Syria), and how to dispose of the bike afterwards without getting ripped off. The other option would be to hire a bike, but I wasn't planning on doing a circuit, so the bike would have to be picked up in Turkey and left in Israel or Jordan. Any help would be appreciated.
