I have just bought a Specialized Sirrus Comp 2011. It is a sporty hybrid, combining elements from road bikes as well as hybrids. It is a good looking, light, responsive and comfortable bike. It is fast and climbs well, yet it will handle less than perfect roads with ease. I have fitted mud-guards and a rack to use it for hauling my weekly shopping. My first impressions are wholly positive. I have even been able to keep up with road bikes on my commute. The only negative so far is that... (read more)

I own the Sirrus Pro Model 2009, which has a full carbon frame, Shimano 105 derailleur and FSA triple crankset 50/39/30. Please note that there are different Sirrus models available!
The Sirrus Pro is an excellent bike. It's frame is very stiff, yet comfortable to ride (thanks to the Zirtz damping). Honestly, I can't think of any better frame. The bike is light and so it's great fun to climb up hills, easy for everybody with the high gear ratio. Here, I wonder if there is any difference to... (read more)

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... (read more)

Having owned 2 Sirrus Elite bikes I thought I would upgrade to a Comp. The stiff hard ride was to be expected from a sportier model with higher PSI tyres. Fast and relatively light it seems an ideal commuter bike. However it is let down by poor quality. Maybe I have a dud, but I am in the bike shop nearly every week with some problem or the other. I think the quality is just not there, parts rusting after only 3 months of 10 miles a day commute, tyres not puncture resistant enough for town... (read more)

bought a new 2008 pro.I love this bike!The carbon frame is very stiff & you do feel every pebble so mabye its not for everyone but I have had a full knee replacement & the ride is not a problem for me. I put carbon riser bars,carbon stem,Veredistein cyclocross tires & smarty M2 pedals on my bike for year round riding & I have no complaints. (read more)

I realised I was wearing out my MTB on the roads Sunday morning exercise runs of 10 - 15 miles so considered a hybrid with a road bike bias. No point in too much of an overlap with the MTB. Tried out the basic model and it felt very lively but very harsh. I thought I might as well try the Elite which is the more expensive model with the carbon forks expecting not much difference (only perhaps to the weight) but it was a revelation. MUCH smoother. I don't worry too much about drain covers etc... (read more)

I bought the 2008 Specialized Sirrus Pro bike used off the SF Bay Area Craigslist about a month ago.
I have an entry level road bike with low end components and a mountain bike, so I wanted upgraded components and lighter frame.
For less than $700.00 I got practically new full carbon bike with good components. The rear derailleur is a deore. Specialized specs said it was 105. ??
Only complaint, I lost a bladed spoke, unable to find a replacement at local bike shops. had to replace with... (read more)

The 2009 specialized Sirrus sport is the best bike I've ever had.
Having ridden a 2008 model for a week a few months ago I knew I had to get the pedals and the tyres changed before I left the shop. I put slightly larger pedals (I don't have big feet) and armadillo tyres with proper tread and it was perfect. The tyres it comes with are rubbish and you will get lots and lots of punctures. Looks brilliant. Very comfortable on good roads and very fast.. (read more)

I found the Sirrus a very stylish, well finished bike which was fast and smooth on good roads however, for commuting on most town and city roads it was not really up to the job. The ride is too harsh due to the racing bike style wheels and tyres. I have reverted to a mountain bike with slicks which is far more comfortable and surprisingly only a little slower. (read more)

Excellent bike for commuting. Front forks are Cromoly material, lacks shocks on bumpy roads. Still the Specialized Sirrus is a great bike with high end deraillers. (read more)

I just got my 2008 Sirrus last night but the handlebars rattle a lot...leaving my left arm tingly when I got to work this morning. What used to take 1 hr 15 mins on my mtn bike to commute to work only took 1 hr with my Sirrus. I like it, but not too crazy about it. (read more)

For the record, I love my 2007 Sirrus. The large diameter wheels and slender road tyres (combined with its unusually light weight), give the bike a zippy feel, as commuting on the Sirrus takes much less time as compared to my mountain bike. The solid frame/forks contribute to its nimble and precise handling, although it is a bumpy ride. I find that since most of the riders weight is distributed over the rear wheel, full rear tyre pressure reduces road friction considerably, and makes for a... (read more)
