Redline Metro SPORT vs CLASSIC ???

I'm a newbie to bikes. Looking for a commuter/exercise bike that can handle 'tougher' terrain, hills, and less sensitive/aggressive than road bikes. My choices came down to these two ( redline metro sport vs the classic). I rode the sport and really liked it. I was pointed to the classic as a better option by the sells-man. Both were originally out of my price range. Now the classic feels a very high for me. Plus the orange is not really inconspicuous, which isnt my style.

How much is the difference between the two, and is the price for the upgrade really worth it, long-term?

Big difference: Frame and fork materials: ChroMo Steel (classic)vs Aluminum (sport)..

both are fine..

if not planning to Race Cross , sloping top tube types may be OK
their [dual sport] DS1 is a lot less money, as a commuter , it will do..

half the $ .. under $600. ..
