Dear PoPville – Where to Buy a Used Bike?

by Prince Of Petworth May 2, 2011 at 2:30 pm 60 Comments

“Dear PoP,

The bike I’ve had for the last 10 years finally died a few months ago, and I’m looking to get a new one pronto. Where are your readers’ favorite sources for used bikes? I don’t want to spend a fortune given the frequency of bike thefts in the city — maybe $200 or less. Are there any shops in the area that will sell used bikes (all I’ve found so far is Big Wheel Bikes, and everything they have is listed is more than I want to spend), or any used bike sales coming up? Craigslist hasn’t been that helpful, and my Googling isn’t turning up much either.”

Any good ideas besides Craigslist?
