    Some Possible CL Purchases

    I've got my eyes on these to use as a commuter but don't know enough about the vintages. Thoughts?

    (60CM) PEUGEOT PH10-S ROAD BIKE

    Schwinn Road Bike - 58cm - speedy !!!!!

    Modern Raleigh Grand Prix with Index Shifters

    All of these are far within my price range so I would also love some upgrade suggestions.

    Thank you!

    Peugeot is the only steel frame in this trio, somit gets my vote.

    Not sure I would go for any of the three...none of them "speak" to me...if they do to you, then go for it. They do appear to be different sizes however...and fit is the most important thing...

    2 of them are 58cm, and the first is 60cm. That shouldn't be too terrible. Although I an worried the peugeot is too big.

    The Raleigh is a deal on a modern bike, as long as everything works. The others are overpriced. The Schwinn is really, really, really BEAT.

    The Raleigh is likely too large for the OP, too. Oddly sized.

    Don't ever buy from the 2nd seller, note the background and phone number for future reference. He's shady and sketchy. I've seen his operation on the inside. Poor workmanship, cuts corners, misrepresents...

    Peugeot's the nicest one C&V-wise, but it's just way overpriced. It should be priced closer to around $200 -225 max. and only if it is in really good, rideable condition, as although it's a pretty good bike, ride-wise, and can be modded up to a pretty fast ride, it's kind of an entry level bike from Peugeot.
