The Diamondback has a few other considerations, once we consider inseam/bike size. But a 'possible'...
worth some discussion...

Yes, the Expert is overpriced, but not by that much if you add in the COVID tax, and it's been up for nearly a month, so the seller might be willing to go down a bit. But if it's in as good a shape as it looks, I'd happily pay $400 for it; it's a nicer bike than you can buy new for the price.

If it's a bit small, it can be at least partly mitigated with a longer stem, assuming the OP is a roadie and wants the laid out position. The Ascent would make a great townie with some work.
