Best place to buy a second hand bike?

Hey. All the details I seem to find on the net are at least five years ago.

I need a bike ASAP; what is my best course of action?

Regards, duke

If you're willing to travel come over to Avenches there's a bike shop just outside the town which is an Aladdin's cave of bikes.

Not sure what the business is called. It's in an old Citron garage (yes, that's the way it's spelled above the door). It's just here off the N1 at Avenches.



You can't miss it as he has lots of bikes outside.

If you need a bike or parts for a bike that'll be the place to go.

NYC!
The junkies steal em.
The bikes shops sell em.
Just don't park it anyplace.
Otherwise you'll have to go back to the shop to buy it again.
