Shipping back and forth doesn't make sense

I have shipped bikes to and from South America from Miami. It is expensive.

You would be better off shipping one to Santiago, meeting it there, and then trying to sell it to another traveler in Uruguay and flying home from there. Or you can try to buy one in Santiago, and sell it when you leave. Some travelers advertise bikes for sale in these cities. Some are reasonably priced, others not, but most are pretty well used up.

It is a hassle bringing one in via air to Brazil, and can take days to clear one in Quito. Same goes for Venezuela. Bogota is cheap and easy, but you might want to get your South American legs first before tackling Colombia. Plan on at least $3000 to ship to and from South America from Miami.
