Finding a road bike in Amsterdam(5 posts)

Finding a road bike in Amsterdamjfd141

Does anyone know where to get a decent road bike in the Amsterdam/Rotterdam area? I am studying abroad in this area and can't seem to find any kind of used bike that isn't 30 years old with fenders and a 10 pound rack...(of course they have their benefits for riding around town). I bought one of these crappy bikes thinking it would just give me a better work out but I tried a long ride today and it was just a pain in the neck...I need a decent used road bike! Can anyone recommend any shops? I'm in Leiden but would be easily able to travel to Amsterdam, Den Haag, Rotterdam to get a half decent ride. Thanks!

Want a new bike, try Lohman at the de clerqstraat 70 in Amsterdam or Mammoet at the Stationsweg in the Hague.

For a good used bike, I would look ouside of the big city's in your area, you'll problably get better prices and a more decent bike.

You could also take a look at for a used bike.

What kind a bike are you looking for, what budget? Could do a quick search for you.

I'm looking for something as cheap as possible while still being a half decent ride. Ideally I'd like to spend under 150 euro...I realize this isn't much but an old 10 speed with toe clips would be excellent (seeing as I didn't bring cycling shoes and that would just be another expense to buy here). I have a nice bike at home and the cost of shipping is a lot so I would just assume leave the bike in Europe. That being said I ride a 58cm at home but I think anywhere from 56-60 cm would be good enough if the price is right (I'm on a student budget).

my email is if you prefer to send me info that way. Thanks for the info (I don't speak Dutch so it's pretty much impossible for me to read the classifieds)

Pick it up from a newspaper outlet on Thursday mornings.
