Amsterdam Knowledge Base
If you don't mind stolen bikes, behind the train station
there is usually some junkies out there selling stolen bikes
for as little as 25 guilders.
If a haggard looking person rides by you slowly and says
"feets" they are trying to sell you a bike. "Fiets"
is Dutch for bicycle, and it sounds like feets.
You can also find the street hookers there behind the station
) Not me on either count! I don't hang around back there.
All kidding aside, I think for 500 guilders you could get
a nice new bike. Remember that Dutch bikes look like something
out of the 50's, though mountain bikes are becoming more popular.
The Dutch bikes are 3 or 4 speeds, you sit up straight, and the
lock is built in.
