Speed, comfort and confident handling come together to make Specialized's Sirrus a carefree ride. It sports a light aluminum frame, a pavement-smoothing steel fork and efficient, road bike-size 700c wheels for easy pedaling on every road and path. Shimano's 24-speed drivetrain provides a wide range of gears for easy climbing, while the powerful linear-pull brakes control your speed on the fun back down. And thanks to the flat handlebars and comfort-oriented riding position, you'll finish every ride feeling great.

Completely love this thing!

Pros:
Lightweight, Stylish, Comfortable, Durable
Cons:
Have Not Found One Yet
Best Uses:
Road And Smooth Path Ride
Used for cardio work out. Ride short to medium distance at fast pace. Not a con, but I am not used to the shifting. Learning on the fly and would not change a thing. The green color of the 2015 is fantastic. 1st Specialized bike and will never buy another brand.

Update to review "Great Bike"

Pros:
Versatile, Lightweight
Cons:
Best Uses:
Commuting/City
Purchased the bike in 2011 and have put on over 1600 miles in the last 3 years. I don't get to ride as often as I like but when I do it's usually 10+ miles a day. I really enjoy the bike, it's a lot of fun to ride. It's fast, but not as fast as a road bike. Still it's a great all around bike.

Great Bike!

Pros:
Fast and Smooth Ride, Versatile, Value, Lightweight, Durable, Comfortable, Company Reputation
Cons:
Best Uses:
Secondary Bike, Commuting/City
I can be found primarily riding a Roubaix. I purchased the Sirrus as my slow-speed/fun/comfort bike. The Sirrus is very comfortable, a lot of fun, and actually can be quite fast, slow too when wanted or needed. Also rides well in the grass. I could actually see a much longer trip aboard now that I have a bike to mount racks upon. Honestly, I couldn't be any happier and I purchased the base model. PS- I did a lot of shopping beforehand and expected to pay much more to find what I now have.

Great bike

Pros:
Good Looking, Easy Uphill, Lightweight, Handles Well Off-road
Cons:
Best Uses:
Commuting
I bought the specialized 13' sirrus basic model yesterday at my LBS. The staff was so nice and he explained every questions to me patiently. As I just had this bike for a day, I am not ready to give any comments regarding its durability and components yet. However, I have been in a good position to say that this bike is a great one. I tried it today with 16km riding in a windy (40kph) and cold weather (1-3C), with a lot of uphill sections. I did not feel any fatigue. The riding was so easy and gear changing was very smooth and fast. Compared to my mountain bike, the riding experience is completely different. This bike is very light, weighing only 25 pounds. I am confident that I can start to commute from Richmond Hill to Downtown Toronto every day from next Monday except the bad weather days. The only thing I want to complain is about the seat which caused me a bit sore after 16km riding. I am going to replace it with a softer seat or put a gel cover on it.

Magnificent Quality

Pros:
Comfortable, Great Components, Lightweight
Cons:
none
Best Uses:
Commuting, Pavement
This Bike is truly amazing. I bought it so that I could ride it to school (3.5 mi away) and it handles beautifully! All the components work great and I would truly recommend buying this bike. This is also my first REAL bike, as my previous one was the department variety, but its not too expensive, and still handles like a pro. Rock on cyclists, and take your adventures to the cosmos frontier with this hot ride!

I still love this bike

Pros:
Comfortable Ride, Durable, Lightweight, Great Components
Cons:
Best Uses:
Pavement, Ciclavia Rides
I bought this bike about a year ago because my mountain bike was too heavy for the hills and my road bike was too wimpy for the rough patches between my house and my favorite ride on the strand here in the [...] . No problems, super comfy. I ride about 80 miles/week.

You need to get one of these bikes

Pros:
Comfort lightweight, Durable, Great Components, Lightweight
Cons:
none
Best Uses:
Pavement, Commuting
I got this bike a week ago and it is incredible a huge change from what I had before. The guy's at the [...] store helped me out alot they spend the time to explain everything about the bike from the frame to the tires and everything in between a fantastic group. This was my first big bike, I went to other stores but I highly recommend this one for quality service and great info on whatever you need.

Entry level to quality ride

Pros:
Fast, Durable, Lightweight, Nimble, Great Components
Cons:
Best Uses:
Commuting, Exercizing, Long road rides
bought it in christmas after getting tired of poor [@] quality mongoose bikes. If you really plan to use it, it is definitely worth the jump in quality for a very reasonably price. Components are not space age, but are very good quality, and that translates in an efficient and smooth ride. You can ride on road for many miles without feeling tired at all. I'm not giving it the 5 stars here just because the front Alex rim came with a minor imperfection that had to be removed. Other than that, extremely happy with the decision of buying a specialized bike

Great Bike

Pros:
Fast, FUN, Lightweight
Cons:
None
Best Uses:
Exercise, Commuting/City, Everyday
I'm 61 years old and 250 lbs. I got into cycling this year to help remove some of the excess me. Pulled a 30 yr old [...]10 speed out of the attic and put 300 miles on it before it gave out. After researching I bought this bike and love it. It's light weight, fast and fun to ride. It has plenty of gears to flatten out the hills that I couldn't get up before. I've had the bike 5 days and put 45 miles on it. This is a great bike at a reasonable price.

I love this bike

Pros:
Shifts great, Lightweight
Cons:
Best Uses:
Pavement
I got this bike to use as exercise on days I don't run; I wanted something fast yet comfortable. I really enjoy riding it, its light, comfortable (somewhat upright) and I love the way it looks. It doesn't have suspension so rough roads can be jarring, but on smooth roads the miles just fly by. I rode this bike for 2 hours and had NO soreness or stiffness. My next bike will a Specialized.

Components I wanted for the price I need

Pros:
Great Components, Lightweight, Really good looking
Cons:
Best Uses:
Commuting, Pavement
I bought this bike after having a Diamondback Miravista that I liked a lot, but the frame was a little too small for me. So I was looking for a fitness style bike with good components, like the 700c wheels, easy fire shifters, aluminum frame, and needed the heavy duty wheels. so it was between the Trek 7.2 and this one. I rode them both and the Specialized was a better fit for me. I'm sure the Trek would have been a great bike too, but what can I say...I liked the RED, and the shape of the frame was cool too. I haven't had this bike long enough to comment on the durability, but its looks solid enough...We'll see!

Great Bike

Pros:
Great Components, Lightweight, Handles well, Durable
Cons:
Really hard Seat
Best Uses:
Pavement, Commuting
I got this as a first time bike in several years to start riding to work(About 8 Miles). So far the bike is great. It reacts and hadles well. The only bad thing is how hard the seat is especially if you are a big guy which I am. But a seat cover fixes that up real quick.

Great for casual riding

Pros:
Durable, Quiet, Lightweight, Smooth Ride, Comfortable
Cons:
Frame shape, Wires, Poor Off-road Handling
Best Uses:
Pavement, Commuting
I've had this bike for almost 4 years now and it's great. It's smooth to ride and very durable. It's never needed anything other than a minor tune up. Extremely light for its price, I'm 100lbs and have no problems carrying it up and down stairs. It has large wheels that are pretty thin and goes fast with minimal effort. A few minor cons, the seat is on the narrow side and not that comfortable. While great on paved roads, you can feel every bump on bad roads. The brake wires run along the frame and are not covered, so you have to be careful how you hold the frame. The biggest downside is that the frame is not linear in any way. This along with the brake wire placement makes it practically impossible to mount any accessories. I can't mount a U lock mount, no kickstand, no spoiler. Even just a bell and lights took a lot of creative thinking. If you're okay carrying everything in a backpack, this is not a problem. Overall, it's great for the casual, recreational riders and it gets you where you need to go fast. But not great for off road or as a work horse, if you need to carry a lot of stuff.

07 Specialized Sirrus

Pros:
Great Components, Durable
Cons:
Best Uses:
Commuting, Pavement
I have bicycled over 6, 000 miles per year for over 30 years using many different bikes. Bought the Sirrus from a neighbor who was moving. I only used it on pavement, but after several thousand miles I have not had to adjust anything. Put aero bars on it so I could use it as a back up for group rides. For the money it is a great cross over bike.

Good transition road bike.

Pros:
Versatile, Value, Durable, Comfortable, Lightweight, Climbing
Cons:
Poor Component Selection, Seat too wide for men, Alex R500 rims weak
Best Uses:
Climbing, Commuting, Pavement, Cycle Cross Racing
I have the 2007 Sirrus. I was used to mountain bikes and wanted bike to ride road. I was not ready for a full road bike so the Sirrus made sense. It can be configured as a flat bar road bike or made into a more off road capable bike with just some wider tires with tread and climber bars. If you can only own one bike, this could work well. I just did a 40 mile road race with it and it was fast and comfortable. I only added 23mm tires, clip pedals, aero bars and a different seat. Only problems have been with the Alex R500 rims. I am 220lbs and the rims just can't take the stress. They have gone out of true and loosened up several times. If you are a lightweight, you probably won't have this issue.
