Looking for a touring bike in Buenos Aires in September

Hello there,

I will begin the route of Che Guevera in September. I will be alone and I am planning to do it on bike. I will come from Turkey. So I dont want to pay extra luggage for a bike. As a traveller, I dont have so much budget. So I want to buy a second hand bike in Buenos Aires when I come there. If anyone is planning to finish their tour in that time and to buy their bikes, please write me anything. It would make so happy if you can help me about it .

Any suggestions where to buy second hand bikes are welcomed, too :)

See you!

Someone was on the forums

Someone was on the forums coming from Europe and asking if they should buy new bikes and sell them at the end of their trip in BA but that was more around June/July I think.

You could try mercadolibre which is kind of like ebay here - you can go direct to the seller, inspect things yourself and pay in cash:

Otherwise this is a fairly comprehensive list of bicicleterias in BA (many trade or sell 2nd hand on consignment):
