buying a used bike in NZ
« on: December 15, 2010, 09:00:54 PM »
Traveling to NZ in FEb & March and plan on doing some touring. I was considering retrofitting my Giant Mt Bike but started thinking that it may be wiser to purchase a used tour bike there, or a Mt bike and do the conversion there. Anyone have a source for used bikes? Any suggestions don't want to have the hassle of shipping and am limited in weight factor.

Sorry, I don't have any other info.
