Need help purchasing my first bianchi

Bianchi
http://losangeles.craigslist.org/sfv...281500850.html

Hello I am in the hunt for a new bike because my last one got stolen (bummer). I have been torn between a bianchi and a schwinn but have recently decided to go with the bianchi, however i know nothing about this bike. I really want to know if this Bianchi is worth the asking price or if I should continue looking.

here is a link to the schwinn:

If it fits and the seller will really take $220 for it the Bianchi looks like an OK buy but I can't tell much about it from those pics.

Bianchi limit road bike - $220 (Pacoima ca)


Bianchi limit road bike 12 speed Grand Prix tires 4000 shimano 600 group, size 58 $300 obo
Everything works good. I'm located in San Fernando
located in San Fernando any questions please text me at this number

I am going to look at it in about 4 hours. its hard to get any details from the pictures and my only concern is that there is something major wrong with it because the seller said he is willing to take $190 if i decide to take it with me today.

The Schwinn is not an Xl, its a very small frame, not a deal, its a China doll.
