Specialized Sirrus


“Fast and durable city bike; Excellent entry-level ride; Well worth the dollars spent; Solid for city riding,” these are some of the comments expressed about the tough, urban friendly, Sirrus, another winner from the Specialized team.

One tester, who works as a bike mechanic was lavish in his praise of how the Sirrus was made.  I quote: I found that Specialized somehow puts their bikes together better than anyone else; they seem to break less often than bikes from other manufacturers.”

Finger- lifting light, yet tough, Sirrus offers 28mm wheels which are great for the urban roads tarmac; a fast city rider without sacrificing comfort.

In a few cases there were gripes about the tires and the seats; the tires picking up flats easily and the seat posts being spongy, and even being too wide for men.  One rider was not happy about the stitching around the seat which let in water, either from rain, puddles or washing

There was one complaint about its poor handling; that was swallowed by the good comments our testers provided.

From about $500 US, the Sirrus is a good buy for those who like their bikes to versatile pavement and trail-friendly.
