I'm looking to purchase (or rent for a month) a used touring bike in the next week, preferably in Amsterdam or nearby areas. Ideal size is 52cm, and I'll be on pavement nearly all of the time.
Yes, I do know about Marktplaats and the innumerable bicycle stores in the Netherlands, but though I'd post here too.
So, if anyone has a bike I might be interested in, please let me know.
Maybe you can sent email to the bikeshops in Amsterdam (or ask your familie there to look around for a second had bicycle). For example you've http://www.vakantiefietser.nl/, but I think he doesn't have second hand, but you can ask.
You also can post your question on www.wereldfietser.nl (means world traveller); it's the Dutch side of enthousiast travellers by bicycle.
