Looking for a used bike in Brussels?

There are several ways of finding a used bike in Brussels.

Before going through them one by one, here first are a few important points: Is the bicycle maybe too small or too big for me? How do I plan to use it? Is the frame in good condition? Are there small or large repair costs that will have to be incurred? Can I go back to the seller if there are problems later? Have I also included the purchase of a (good quality) lock in my budget?

Taken everything into consideration? So, go for it! Because the longer a bicycle is on the road, the more sustainable a form of transport it becomes.

Bike markets

Selling and buying among (future) cyclists
Non-refurbished bicycles (with technical specifications)
At the bike markets, it is possible to sell or buy a bicycle. In the best case scenario, these bikes of all different sorts come with a sheet including their technical specifications.
Every year, in September, CyCLO holds its big Bike Fair.
The CycloLokal team offers its help to any association that wants to organize its own bicycle flea market. Here are all the dates and locations for 2021.
