Where can I buy good, cheap or used bikes in Brussels?

I booked a flight with Swiss Airlines, but actually will be Edelweiss the operator. So it will cost 500 E to bring my bike. After this shock I decided to buy a bike in Brussels. I saw at Decatlhon some about 250-300 E, but do you know any bike store that sells good/used bikes? I will go straight from the airport to buy.

Thanks for who will help me. :)

It's not cheap, but it is

It's not cheap, but it is truly excellent: La Maison du Velo. They are knowledgeable, have a deep inventory, and have been happy to help us quickly on several occasions. Avenue Milcamps, just off the Chaussee de Louvain.

There's a huge weekly flea market including a big bicycle market on Sundays by the Gare du Midi. My partner says, "I don't know whether the bikes are stolen or not."

I saw a lot of people riding Decathlon house brand bikes (BtWin), so it is possible, and they are inexpensive. However, if you are doing a long trip, or getting off the beaten track, or are not a pretty good mechanic, I'd get any bike I bought at Decathlon checked out thoroughly before I started on my tour. The only test rides at the Decathlon I went to was inside the store.
