I have a Sabian HH Raw Ride 21 inch which is great for a ride but too heavy for a crash.
Looking for suggestions... only caveat is that I like a bell that cuts.
Should be at least 20 inches

Paiste reissue 20" 602 Medium ride - fantastic crashable ride.
Paiste Masters 20" Medium ride - another great crashable ride.
Paiste 20" 2002 Medium - the classic crash ride

I have a really nice Istanbul Mehmet 50s Nostalgia Ride. 22", that sounded great as a ride in the shop, but it makes a really nice crash. In fact, I use it as a crash most of the time. You can really lay into it, very sweet sounding cymbal. It may be for sale, truth be told.

All excellent suggestions so far. I'd add the Zildjian K Ride to that list.

I just ordered a used Sabian 20" Studio Ride for the sole purpose of having a big crash. It's in the mail right now, so won't know if I made the right decision or not. I used to own a 20" Zildjian Jazz Ride. That cymbal was a lousy ride, but a SWEET crash. I suppose that any medium-thin ride cymbal will do the trick. Lately, I've been pretty pleased with a 20" Zildjian Avedis ride as a crash.

20" Zildjian A Medium Ride (2013 redesign).
Rides well,crashes well,and as a bonus,it has a nice bell too....
Be careful with this one. I once had one and brought it to a gig. Was wash riding it and the sound man just about had a cow. It was overwhelming the band. I crash ride all of the time but now it's usually something from the K families. No complaints since. Just telling from my personal experience. Your mileage may vary. I'm just about done with modern day As. I don't personally care for the redesign 2013 stuff at all. Still sound harsh to my ears. Doesn't hold a candle to most things in the K range. Just my opinion. I did like the Armand's though...those had a little K in them...those were pretty fantastic.

I had a 20" Heavy K ride I bought on CL for $70. I sent it to Heather Stein in Simi Valley CA and had her lathe it down from 2700 grams down to 1870. Then she beat a lot of character into it. The most beautiful sounding ride ever! This one will go to the grave with me.

By along way, the 21" Sabian Groove ride is a great combination of ride, crash, and bell. I'd suggest trying a few, as weights can vary. The one I had had great definition, nice, wash, and a excellent, cutting bell.
