Miele (classica?) vs Benotto 1800

Hello there. For my first post on this forum, I'm curious to know what you think about theses two bikes and their posted value:

Miele (Classica I think)
Vélo Miele Route | de route | Longueuil / Rive-Sud | Kijiji

Benotto 1800
Velo de route BENOTTO 12 vitesse reynold | de route | Longueuil / Rive-Sud | Kijiji

They both appear to be Shimano 105. The Benotto looks in considerably better condition.

Let me know your thoughts. Thanks!

Can only comment from experience on the Miele. I owned one, a Latina model and it was a very nice bike. Was too small for me. I tried to stretch it with Nitto Technomic and more setback on the seatpost, but gave up. i'd still have it if it fit.

The Benotto appears to be of excellent build quality. Probably worth the price and then some. IMHO you would do well either way.

For $100 less I would take the Miele. The Benotto is priced ok and if I wanted to ride one, I would probably pay that but as an everyday rider and for $100 less...I would buy the Miele

I think the Miele is fairly priced.
I have one and it's a wonderful bike, just a bit too small for me.

Thanks for the opinions all! That's what I figured—$100 is a big difference in this case. Unfortunately I ended up missing out on the Miele
