I have never been a fan of top tank peds.Well .... magnum types..... And I have never owned/sought one out. Step through is what a true moped should look like . When I wanted a top tank bike that looked like a motorcycle I went out and bought a motorcycle. I love seeing people on magnums in full tuck as I pass them by on a step through sitting straight up with stock high rise bars. All in all you should ride in what style you love.
