I don't want to tell you anything you might already know.....but El Calafate is a wee little place, and there's no earthly reason anyone would finish a trip there. If you're really arriving in a few days you might want to speed read all the previous threads about buying and selling bikes in Argentina and Chile, then act accordingly.
Hope that's helpful.
Edit to add: Ooops. Bike, motorbike, mountain bike....what's the difference?
My point remains: why would anyone finish a trip in El Calafate? Just skip the part about reading old threads.
