Looking for a bike in NY!

Hi!, Im going to be living in New York for a month and will be needing a bike in order to get to work. Does anybody know a place where i can rent a bike for a month. If anybody has an extra bike and doesnt use it Im willing to rent it and return it before I leave. If not what are the possibiliteies of buying one and being able to sell it afterwards?

It will be easier and cheaper to buy one. A friend of mine got one for $100 from a guy who puts them together in his garage in Greenpoint. I dont have all the info yet but when i do I will pass it on to you and buy one as well.

You should check Craigslist. I sold my old bike on there a few years ago. I would try to avoid the used bike shops. The mark up is usually ridiculous for what you're getting. You should be able to find a decent bike for $100 or less on Craigslist. It won't be a top shape fixed gear set up, but you should be able to find something to suit your needs. BTW...what will your commute be like? Are your traveling to work within a borough?
