• After repeated visits to London my fourteen-year-old brother is looking to spend his pocket money on a road bicycle.

    He tells me that in Münster everyone rides dutch style or hybrids and that shops only cater to these styles of riding (+ his teenage budget means he is looking for something second hand anyway).

    Does anyone have some knowledge or tips to share on where he could look for affordable second hand road bikes?

    I've suggested German Ebay or gumtree equivalents..

    Holland is a short train journey away and he is a fluent German speaker.

    Any German LFGSS equivalents?

    I’d imagined that in the centre or Europe would be full of good quality and fairly priced second hand steel, but he assured me it’s not. Is he looking in the wrong places?
