I would pass on the Peugeot. It looks pretty entry level. The Sirrus may have Shimano 105 components. I think it is worth $100 if it is in good shape. It is hard to tell but the wheels look like they may be mismatched. If that is the case I would definitely offer less. It looks like a 52cm ctc frame so you would need to make sure it fits.

In the north country it is getting to be end of season so prices are down. If you live in a cold weather state you may be able to pick it up for cheaper. I picked up a 54cm ctc Sirrus this summer for my wife for $55 but that was a steal. I did have to replace the tires on it.

The Carbolite 103 Peugeot is good but the Sirrus is a higher level bike. Unfortunately, it looks cheap-i-fied. Parts may be significantly worse than stock.

The mid 80's pug is a nice riding bike. That Sirrus looks like it needs help. The rims don't match, tires don't match, needs cable reroute, has that stored outdoors patina.

At $100 why not buy both? If you can haggle either or both down a few dollars, I mean the specialized need a little work and maybe some nicer hoods, those mismatched tires. $80 to 90 each would be awsome. You'll have the Pug for errands and commuting and the Specialized for training and group rides. Even better you leapt from having no bikes to being in the N+1 level LOL

+1 Mismatched wheels always brings up the question: "Why?" And the Sirrus needs work. If you have the time/tools/aptitude/pile of parts it is a deal. I would buy it myself, dig into my parts bin, clean it up and send it on to another home. But if you pay someone to do that work, and pay retail for parts, it will get expensive.

The Peugeot, while pretty much entry level, is a good deal at that price, and appears to be in much better shape.

Both are good deals, the Specialized is the better bike, but needs quite a bit of work and a careful inspection. Often, mismatched wheels means the bike has been crashed. Not a deal breaker, but something to be aware of.

I will definitely try to see if I can get the prices down, thanks for the advice everyone.
17 year old without a job? Forget bikes direct, find a co-op in your area first, then pick up a project bike, from a garage sale, thrift store, neighbor, word of mouth. Trade convenience (lack of) for a lower price and sweat equity. Co-ops will typically provide tools, some technical advice (volunteer mechanics), and used parts at a low cost..
