I want to buy a bicycle in Vietnam - Ho Chi Minh City between the 25th of March and the 4th of April. If anyone finishes their trip and is keen to sell their bike let me know.
Other info on acquiring a bike and equipment in Ho Chi Minh City is greatly appreciated!
The best bicycles are at Martin 107, located at 107 Vo Thi Sao (or is it Sau?) in District 1 in HCMC. Great bikes, they come with warantees, and also many Vietnamese men will see the Martin sticker and call out to tell you that yes, Martin is Number One in Vietnam.
My gearless, student-style bike cost 1 million dong brand new (about $62). They also make mountain bikes and roadbikes.
Have fun! Make sure you get one with a bell so you're not defenseless!
Thanks jlkauf, I'll go there and have a look! Do you know if they have any gear like panniers etc??
