I've had my Specialized Sirrus only for a couple of days, but my first impression is a very good one. Very good position on the bicycle, nice hard and thin tires, narrow handlebar (I put bar-ends on it, which I would recommend everyone to do) - all that accounts for excellent riding speed. Saddle hasn't given me any problems so far (which I usually get with new bikes), neither have the foot pedals.
Only slight negative observed so far is that when shifting gears the chain doesn't engage with the cog quite as quickly as you'd like to, and there seems to be minimal friction of the chain on some part when riding in the highest gear.
It's probably early for an overall conclusion, but if I don't get major problems with repairs I'll be a very happy bunny, especially considering the relatively low price of the bicycle.
