I am looking for a second bike, one for winter riding (which my Domane, where I live and for my wants, is not suitable) and something I can maybe do some very limited off-road riding.
I get the differences between the two models - but my LBS has neither in stock and would require a special order. I'd like to be a little more heads up while riding than my Domane offers and I certainly like the idea of the additional brake levers on the Crossrip. But I'm not familiar at all with hydraulic systems and I wonder, for my use, if there are any practical advantages of the 200 series frame of the Crockett over the 100 series of the Crossrip.
Any suggestions or actual experience with either would be helpful and appreciated.
