Do you think there'd be any advantage of the Boroughs over the Crossroads??

I'm a bit stuck between the two, the crossroads are 55g lighter which isn't a huge amount but is nice to have.

The only other thing is that the Borough tyre profile appears to be smoother and is marketed as an adventure bike tyre while the Crossroad is marketed as a hybrid/town bike tyre and is slightly more aggressive in tread.

I'm trying to weigh up which one of the two would roll easier. There's also the other advantage that the Borough will likely be a little more comfortable with the extra air volume.

I think my choice may be leaning further towards the armadillo route but it's still not an easy choice between the two.
