I am looking at acquiring a used bike for roughly $300-$350 for use in Toronto. More specifically, I am thinking about undertaking the 8.8KM trip from mount pleasant & Lawrence to Bloor & Spadina. This route involves some street and some paths so I assume that a hybrid would be suitable.
From what I have read on these boards, when on a lower budget, it is often wiser to buy a good used bike then spend that same money on a new bike. That being said, has anyone dealt with local bicycle shops that sell used bikes. Has your experience been good?
Thanks for your input!
