buying a bicycle in Hanoi

Hello cyclers,

I couldn't find a post about this, but if so please tell me. I'm having a hard time buying a bicycle at the moment. The amount of shops is promising in my experience, but the lack of English speaking sellers makes it hard for me. My lack of bicycle knowledge isn't helping either. I also feel like the price is or too cheap to be good or to expensive for my budget ( max 2,5 milj). I feel like some will say that price is to low, but as a person who's new to this way of travelling I would like to start of small. Plus, I always liked it the thrifty budget way. I know some of you know what I mean. I've been looking for a good second hand website, FB page and a street. My best find was Lang street, where there are at least five (?) Bicycle shops selling new and used. Again I had a hard time communicating without English speakers and someone knowing what I need for my long-distance travel.

I really hope someone can help me on this one!
