This is my lovely friend, Raphael.
Raphael is one of my adventurous friends. He is an artist, a teacher, a chef, a comedian and just a really nice friend to have on a rainy night in North Beach. Recently, Raphael packed up and moved to Berlin where he currently resides. Without a bicycle.
Raphael is looking for advice on where to buy a bicycle in Berlin. He is not a German speaker (yet) and because of the cross world move not exactly dripping in money. Raphael would like to buy a used bicycle, but is afraid of ending up with stolen property.
So, who out there in the blogosphere has some ideas to help this fantastic friend of mine out? Where are the good used bicycles in Berlin? What should a 20 year old Gazelle (or something like it) cost? Are you in Berlin and have a bicycle for sale? Raphael will be checking in to see what you all have to say so let's get the advice going!!
