Hi Antonia,

I suppose it is to just highlight the distinction between 'nouveau' and 'neuf'.

If you say:

J'ai un nouveau vélo.

It means you have a bike which is new to you but not necessarily brand new, i.e., it could be second-hand.

Hope this helps!

Why would yuou not use - j’ai acheté un velo neuf as the bike is brand new?

J’ai acheté un nouveau vélo
