HPvelo Spirit or Optima Hopper

if anyone has any advice about which is the better of these two I'd be grateful:


I went for this:
I test-rode a Bacchetta Cafe as well but that has a front derailleur, which I can do without the hassle of. Also the hinged steering pole made it all a bit wobbly. The Hopper has disc brakes and a rack as standard, which are both extras on the Cafe. OK it looks like an overgrown Raleigh Chopper but I like it
