The Other Site had one mention of bicycle registration in a forum topic on bicycles and motorcycles in Somoto. The word was to take a bicycle and the sales receipt to the alcalde's office and pay some small amount of money to register the bicycle. Many people apparently weren't doing this in Somoto. Anyone have any experience with this? I bought a cheap Chinese mountain bike with 24 inch wheels (can't stand over a full sized wheeled mountain bike these days). The store (one of the big chain stores -- Gallo Mas Gallo or the other one) told me where to find a mechanic to check it out, didn't say anything about taking it in for registration.
Anyone have any experience with this?
