Found 2 bikes today

Found two nice bikes today at a LBS. One is a Bill Boston with Suntour------like new..$250 and a BLT with Suntour------like new new..$700. Both are 25"( my size) frames. I can get away with buying the Bill Boston, if I buy the BLT I'll have to sleep in the shop with the bike. As you can tell I'm married So, what do y'all think I should do?

I'd take the Billy Bos simply because of the price. Can't beat that!

Hmmm...

Better go with the less expensive bike and sleep inside the house... at least until autumn.
