Southern Africa CHEAP
I'm planning to go on a three months trip through South Africa, Namibia, Botswana (and maybe on to Zambia, Malawi and Mozambique). My plan is to go there, buy a bike, do my thing, and if possible sell the bike at the end.
I'm still trying to figure out the whole thing, and have absolutely no idea of what would be the best bike for me...
My budget is about 1000€ for the bike: Which new bikes are available for that price? (cheap chinese or indian bikes, but will they hold up?) Do you know if 2nd hand bikes for that price could be reliable (I'm not very experienced, so a good salesman will be able to sell me crap)? What would you recommend or how would you do it?
I'm also in the dark on the equipment I need to carry my stuff, but I'll look into older posts for that first...
Thank you very much!
