NEW bikes

My wife and I have been riding beach cruisers. We are
up to 12 miles a day. I should say we are 60+. We are looking
to upgrade. I like the motobecane cafe express 8., because it has
high riser stem and is very mobile and a little speed. does anyone
have any other ideas? Im down to 205 looking for 175 LBS

Looks like a competent bike. I like the low-maintenance IGH. You didn't mentioned what type of riding you'd be doing but assuming the beach cruisers fit the bill the Express 8 should handle the duties just fine. As per your request I would offer the Novara Transfer as an alternative. Similarly equipped, but with a few more niceties.
