Not sure of the reason a Univega or Peugeot is better?
Univega never built a single bike, I have a Univega built in Taiwan by KHS (a competitor to Giant). Nice bike, no better or worse than a comparable Giant. Some Peugeots are better than Giants, some are worse.
$140 for a bike in LA is cheap, it won't last. Finding something better for $150 = looking really hard, and acting really quick. Anything decent in that price range is going to be scooped up and resold for more.
