They are both fine bikes. The San Jose is cheaper and will take bigger tires. The Paddy Wagon is made from nicer tubing and the stock wheels are a little nicer IMO.

I think the only place cost comes into play is if it's going to be locked up outside in public all day. Might as well go a little cheaper in that case.

Fenders rule, and both bikes give you the option if you change your mind on them later on.

I would not personally choose risers for a bike I'm planning to ride 150 miles a week, but it's your life.
