Where to buy a used bike in Vienna (LBS?, thrift?)

I will be in Vienna for eight days in July, then traveling by car into Salzburgland and Tyrol. Ideally I'd like to bring my bike from the US, but mixed messages about fees and restrictions on American / Air Austria leave me with too many questions and fears about damage and / or prohibitive cost.

Weekly rentals seem to be expensive, at least from what I've been able to gather from travel books and websites. So I'd like to buy a used bike.

Any tips on where to look? LBS in Vienna that deals in used utility bikes? Craigslist-type forums? A bike reseller at a flea market in town?

Alternatively, have you flown with a bike internationally? How big of a headache was it?

I'd be ok with anything that will get me around town in Vienna, but would prefer a steel road bike. A track, fixed, or s/s bike would be dandy as well. I figure that I will come out ahead buying if I can score a reliable bike for around 100 euros. Is it realistic to think that I can buy a bike that works for that ammount?
