Used bicycles


I suggested to a lot of people that North Shore Thrift might be a good place to obtain a used/second-hand bicycle.  I went by there this morning, and they are currently out of adult bikes.  They will get more eventually, but don’t make the trip there for a few days, or you might be disappointed.

Craigslist is another place where you might find a good deal on a used bike.  Try that.

Any other suggestions on good places to find used bikes?  Leave them in the comments.

  1. Check out the Freecycle group on Yahoo! groups. You can find a link to it here: You can put in a request for a bike. It’s all supposed to be free, which is nice. It’s worth a look.

  2. On my search for a used bike I came across that list:

    I ended up with a bike from Eddie’s Bicycle Shop for $125. It is a road bike with big frame, 27″ tires and 10 gears, served me well so far. Good deal IMHO.
