Motobecane's are pretty nice bikes, and a lot of bike for the money typically.

what is good about GT? Besides the name brand? They arent cheap. They arent technologically better than any bike out there. Why is it a good bike, huh? I dont think its anything special.

Motobecane on the other hand, has AT LEAST GT level quality, and a better deal all around. Go with them.
