A fair analysis (won't quote it all) both bikes you can get on and ride down the street, no problem, the question for each is how long. Most department store bikes end up being used a few weekends for pedaling around and put away when fall comes. The manufacturers know that. Many motorized bikes the same.
The point is: Usage, how much and how long does the user expect vs the overall investment.
