Specialized Sirrus Elite - 2012

Specialized Sirrus Elite
This item is currently not available.

Details

The relaxed, upright riding position of Specialized's Sirrus Elite makes all your outings more fun. Its lightweight aluminum frame gets up to speed quickly, while the Zertz-enhanced carbon fork damps vibration and smooths out the road. You'll also love the free-rolling 700c wheels and comfortable handlebars with easy-to-reach controls. Plus, from small errand runs to long rides, you'll be glad you have an easy-pedaling Shimano 27-speed drivetrain for conquering hills as well as the grippy linear-pull brakes for the trip back down.

    I ride a minimum of a few miles every day, with occassional longer rides. Chain stretch and seat squeak have been the only problems. Both were fixed under warrenty. The front derailer and brakes are not the best quality, but overall the bike is very good for the money. The previous version of this bike had 9 gears on the rear instead of 8, but this is not a problem for me. [...]

      Just got back into riding after about a 10 year break. I love this bike. Have had it about 3 1/2 months and put about 700 miles on it. No problems with it whatsoever. It is a road oriented hybrid so keep that in mind of you like doing a little off roading... My only upgrades were clipless pedals and slightly more narrow tires. Now it's perfect. I plan to put a couple thousand miles on it before upgrading to a full on road bike.

        As a fitness/rec bike, you can't do much better at this price point. I bought this to replace a Giant road bike, which at 56 I found a little uncomfortable to ride. The upright position is just what I need. The component set is good for the money. It's a comfortable, well built bike. For road use in a non-competitive setting, it's great. You can pay a lot more for a bike with features you don't need on a rec/fitness bike. This one fits me well, is nicely made and designed, and offers value for money. I like the bike. I recommend it.

        My wife and I recently got into cycling. She got the Vita Elite and I chose the Sirrus Elite. What great bikes! Very comfortable, fast, smooth and forgiving over bumps, and easy shifting. We use the bikes for recreational rides and fitness. I could not be more pleased! I am glad we chose this model with the carbon fiber forks and anti-vibration inserts; you can definitely tell a difference!

          I ride on the weekends and average 30 miles per ride. Comfortable and moves well with road bikes with similar equipment. Also ride casually and is easy to manage at slower paces. Not a typical hybrid as this is more road bike with smooth ride and smooth gearing. I highly recommend paying the extra money for this one (Elite) over the Sirrus Sport.
