Peugeot Orient Express 21 speed

I'm looking to buy a bike, it would be my first time actually buying a bike myself...
Is it worth the money?...Oh, how big is a 26 inch bike, whats the tallest and shortest a person can be to ride it, comfortably...
Thanks you guys in advance...

Hello JZG88 Welcome to the forums. I think the seller is likely refering to the tire size 26x1.75". Bikes are normally sized by the frame and that looks like a 20" or so frame to me. I would say for just riding around town you want to be about 5'9-10" with a inseam of 32" or so. Unless you are really going to run hard offroad (which this bike really isn't made for) you want to be able to comfortably stand over the frame with 2-3" of clearance.

As for the price.... this looks pretty clean and little used but I would still try and get it for under $200. Where are you? in a hot bike market like LA or Boston that price may be good as it gets.

That should be a nice riding bike, but i'd say over priced by $100 in my market. I have its bigger brother the Canyon Express in a 23" frame and I'm 5'10" with 32 inseam. I fit ok on it, but would not want to go any bigger but the top tube length is perfect for me. It's a great riding bike and very flexible with rack and fender mounts.
