yo! I'm searching my first bike. CL is pretty frustrating but lately I've come across some bikes and have some questions:

have anybody any idea what this Peugeot's model is? and whether it is a good price?

Also, stumbled upon this. can't find much about "Biscayne" bikes. How does this compare with the Peugeot above?

Those bikes are two different sizes and the second with the smaller front wheel is designed for a petite woman.

Price wise if you can ride them away they look like OK deals for SanFran

The Pug looks like an '84 PH10 to me.

Here is an earlier thread on Biscayne
. It looks like a decent bike.

what do you mean the two are different sizes? both ad says that they are 54cm bikes. (sorry, i'm kind of a bikenoob)

For the second bike, how do you gather that it is designed for a 'petite woman'? and is the smaller sized wheel just a matter of perspective because on the fourth picture, it shows that both wheels are similar, if not the same, in size.

Thanks for your help.

What the poster meant was someone put a smaller diameter wheel on the front of the Biscayne vs the rear wheel, they did this because whoever had the bike, couldn't get it to fit right because the bike was too big for them so they did that wheel trick.

I would probably lean towards the Pug even though I never really liked them, but of the two it's the better one and it looks nicer. The Biscayne would be the worst of the two, it was made by Merida which made discount store bikes and Raleigh in the early days but they had poor workmanship. They had several models, I can only remember a Galaxy, and a Trident, there may have been others.
