Biking in Berlin and buying second-hand bikes

Berlin loves biking and hipsters don’t own cars. So get a bike and be careful both of the cars and thiefs.

So yes, I have a bike. Ugly, old and German made. Not too ugly to be stolen though, so hope she stays with me.

Where to buy a used bike in Berlin?

Many second-hand bikes are stolen, fyi.
