Hi!

So, to cut a long story short, I want to buy a bike in France next time I go over as it really isn't any cheaper to take mine with me every time I go there. My mum lives there so it'll be safe and sound!
I own a triban 3 here and, not finding anything else, that's what I will go for but I really don't feel like spending almost 400€ on a bike I'll hardly use...

Any ideas of anywhere I can easily buy a bike on a budget over there?

Bordeaux area if that helps...

Thanks!

Then I take it £285 is to much ...:smile:
395€ wasn't only £285 last time I checked. Exchange rates never make my life easy :smile:

Thinking outside the box....

Buy a new cheap town bike in France for about €200 - €250?
Buy a decent secondhand bike in UK box it up and courier it to Ma's?

Yeah, maybe buy a second hand one here and send it over *might* be the cheaper option... Depending on how much it costs to ship it, that is...
