2#1 came close, but no cigar. What I would recommend is bringing a good bike in and leaving it there. I have done that 4 times over the years and all of those bikes continue to serve the people who inherited them. Most of those same bikes are available to me anytime I return.
The bicycles you can buy in Cuba are not worth buying. I bought a few and they were all scrap-heap stuff really quickly. You can buy some great bikes in many nearby other countries and take them into Cuba, leaving them with the friends you make. That option will likely be cheaper than renting or buying a bike there.
Not sure where you are coming from, or on what airlines, but a "bike box" is a common baggage option you might want to check out. Some airlines charge $100, some include it in a "business class" upgrade, and some just don't allow it.
If you can be more specific, more specific options would be proffered here.

3Thanks’ for the information’s, I stay only for 5 days in Cuba and because of the short time to buy a bike is no possibility. I found now an Office who will rent some bikes.
It's allowed to transport bikes with vizul busses? Are there any recommendations?
