Here you have two oppotunities:
In the city there are a lot of the city bikes/Stadtrad where you can register. It is for free for the first 30 minutes and then you have to pay something for every minute.
But you can also find a cheap bike on ebay kleinanzeigen . Some of them are almost broken, some of them are in a really good condition. Prices for a good and cheap bike will vary between 30 and 60 €.
