Road Bike for Women wanted [Zurich]

I am looking for a good condition bike for biking to work. It is around 15 km one way, which is around river. So it should suits with road with stones and can be using to climb a little bit.
I am around 165cm high. Budget is around 100-200CHF. Let me know if you have a bike to sell. Thank you!

Re: Road Bike for Women wanted [Zurich]

I have one - it is a hybrid and I was using to commute 10km from Thalwil to Zurich through the hilly Alte Langstrasse. 200 CHF.

You're not really going to get a proper road bike for 100-200 chf are you, really?

Unless maybe it's 20 years old.

Come on now

If it works and don't break when i bike, it would be fine And I also saw some bikes in the Forum in good condition with this price. So I set the preference...
of course the budget can be higher for better one..

I think the problem is that you put "road bike" in the title - that's a specific type of bike and they aren't cheap. Typically a few thousand CHF and looking like this:



From your posts do I get that you simply want any decent working bike to ride on the road?

Re: Road Bike for Women wanted [Zurich]

It might be an idea to ask moderator to change the title of the thread. Cycling words have changed in meaning.
In my childhood a 'road bike' was a racing bike. And some people at least use 'biking' for off-road and cycling for travelling from A to B on two wheels without fancy bits. And 'going out for a run on my bike'? I can't work it out at all.

Re: Road Bike for Women wanted [Zurich]

Thank you for discussion. Yep, I don't mean a racing bike. Just need a sportive bike can be ride on the stone road ....
Actually, the name just copy from the other two post...I think they also don't mean a race bike...I am ok to delete the 'Road' if it makes readers confusing..

Re: Road Bike for Women wanted [Zurich]

Look at this link. I have a ladies hybrid bike. I'll take 250 CHF for it as I'm clearing out the cellar and since our daughter was born, my wife doesn't ride it. It's fully serviced and is a great bit of kit

you are right. I google it ... i am wrong... i should only ask for a bike...even mountain bike is better than a road bike for my case...because it is generally unpaved/off road. Can anyone help to change the title? or should I open a new thread...

If you can wait a month, I can sell you a nice Villiger bike.
