I have a dilemma, after a long break I bought a 25 inch frame Puch Prima 12 speed but was then given a Peugeot Super Competition 12 vitesse. I can only keep one of the bikes, but which one should go?Image

Peugeot - it's got marginally better components.

ride each of the bikes for 5 miles. Keep the one you enjoyed most.

Take the best components off each and build a new bike, or, if you don't fancy that. Adjust both bikes so they are more or less the same and ride them as cce suggested. Keep the one you prefer. If you can't decide. I had a Puch once and I'd go for the Peugeot :)

Sell both & get a decent lawnmower so that your lawn matches the hedge :)

Although I like the slightly longer reach of the Puch I'm favouring the Pug. I'll do a 20 mile ride on each at the weekend before I finally decide. :)
