Which Bike is best for Me … the C5 Bullet or the GT Cafe Racer ?
Whichever Bike suits your fancy. We have had riders of all ages and sizes on both models and they found each easy to ride. While the GT seems taller, the seat is narrow which is good for shorter riders. The ride position of the Bullet is more upright, feet slightly forward with more compliant suspension for The Bumpy bits. The GT Café Racer is slightly lean foreword and sportier for hooking into corners but still so much more comfortable than the Modern Sports bike Clones out in the Market today. Pick one this Time then try the other Model Next Time.
