Hi,

i'm new in Barcelona. I'm used to going everywhere by bike and spending a lot of my free time on a bike.
Can you recommend a shop where i can buy a used tracking bike or MTB?
Thnx

Hi Tadarida!

There is a bike workshop in Raval (Carrer de la Reina Amàlia). Javier, the guy that works there, sells all kind of used bikes for fair prices.

Take care, it's not an official shop, so you can ask for "el taller de bicis de Javier" once you are there. I think it's this door, but the picture is old:

I recommend this workshop because Javier is a good guy, living from the few euros he earns there, supporting his 6 year old son.

Hope you find a nice bike there!

If you don't mind me saying so, an illegal shop that sells all kind of 'used bikes'... As a bike lover, you will not see me there that's for sure.
