i am planning to buy a bike.
but it is adviced to buy a second-hand one rather than a new bike.
if you get new bike, there is a quite high possiblity to be stolen in Beijing
i can't agree more one of my classmates bought a new bike at the begining of last semester after 3 days it was stole he was very angry with the thief he had no choice but to buy another bike since he lived off campus To make things worse the new bike has belonged to him for only 1 day
poor guy all his friends felt sympathetic but could do nothing so buying a secong -hand bike is a wise decision which can reduce the loss if it is stole

But not many people register their bikes here. I have had many bikes stolen (in the US). My current bike in the US (left it with a friend) never got taken. I love that bike, and it is registered. I ...
In many big cities in China, such as Shanghai, Hangzhou etc, local gov has set up many locations in the city zones for free bicycle lease. the user just need apply an electronical card which will copy your basic personal info including name, ID number, house address etc... it is required that the user must lock the bick at the appointed location within 2 hours. if the user give the bike back within 2 hours but beyond 4 hours, gov will reduct him/her credit record. if your credit record falls below the level of zero, your card will be taken back compulsively. also the bike is installed the GPS function and no need worry it will be stolen.
