A- Is DecoBike a good deal? Miami Beach 411 looks into it.
It’s always great to support the neighborhood stores, and Miami Beach has local bike shops with affordable alternatives to renting from Deco Bikes. Not everyone wants to worry about incurring extra charges and docking the bike every 30 minutes. Fritzs on Washington Ave and Miami Beach Bicycle on 5th Street both offer rental bikes starting at $8 an hour or $24 for the day, which is a full 24 hour period. There is a bigger choice of bikes with both beach cruisers and mountain bikes. The deposit is also much less, and the bikes come with locks which Deco Bikes do not. With the bike stores offering 24 hours for $24 compared to Deco’s 8 hours for the same price, the stores obviously have the better deal.B- I feel very, very old after reading Beached Miami's review of the Jacuzzi Boy's appearance at Churchill's this weekend.
