a good bike
A good bike is safe, more fun and affordable. When you buy a good bike, you can sell it again for a good price.
You will have less problems with a decent, slightly more expensive bike and spent less time on maintenance.
A bike needs a little TLC. Keep it clean; while cleaning you will automatically notice wear and tear. Pump up the tires; you will go faster with less effort and have more control. And of course an occasional hug won’t hurt your bike!
And maybe when you leave the Netherlands you might even want to hang on to your bike.
