He meant the website posted by cannondale125;that site has gaps in different lines of bike listings,plus it doesn't take into consideration the condition/mileage of a bike.
DC has a pretty robust used market,so prices are going to be higher than many other areas. Those are both pretty typical. I'd say the prices are ok if there isn't any rust and the bikes don't need anything. If the chains,brake pads,or tires need replacing,then I would work them down accordingly. Chains are around $18-25,brake pads about $8-15/set,tires could be anywhere from $15-40/ea. Look for rust on the chain,see how much material is left on the pads,and check both the tread and sidewalls on the tires. If there's cracking on the sidewalls,the tire should be replaced.
