Buying Second Hand Bicycle

Hi there guys,

I am looking to buy a road bicycle for doing tours and general training. There appear to be a lot of hybrid/commuter bicycles around but I can't seem to find the right places for more of a racing type bike.

Any advice would be much appreciated. I'm situated in Baar/Zug.

Thanks
Wez

A good idea is to check www.olx.ch with the keyword "Velo". You will be surprised.

A second good idea is to go to your local bycicle shop and ask this question. They are experienced and helpful.

Re: Buying Second Hand Bicycle

Here are a list of the upcoming velobörse in Zürich, but there are similar ones all over Switzerland well worth it for second hand bikes.

Re: Buying Second Hand Bicycle

Ricardo - you have to be signed up to buy or sell.
If you're not already, it takes a couple of days, as confirmation code comes by snail-mail.

I'm not sure if you can filter results within a certain distance of your location, or whether you just have check manually.

You can organise according to price (cheapest) or time remaining for bidding.
