Specialized's Sirrus Elite will make all your favorite rides even more fun with its light, lively and efficient Specialized aluminum frame, while its Specialized Zertz-enhanced carbon fork damps vibration to smooth bumps in the road for top comfort and control. You'll also love the free-rolling 700c wheels and the flat handlebars with easy-to-reach controls. Plus, from running short errands in style to heading out on longer loops, you'll be glad you have an easy-pedaling Shimano 27-speed drivetrain for conquering hills and powerful linear-pull brakes for the trips back down.

I am retired and use this bike for fitness/recreation. After years of neck/back problems I switched to a flat bar road bike. Good hill climber. I ride about 2500 miles per year.
Well, I just sold off a mountain bike that I tried to make into a city, errands bike by changing to street tires. Failed experiment, still sluggish. But, this Sirrus Elite has saved the day! My 2013 Sirrus Elite is quick. Weighs 26 lbs, not bad for an XL frame bike. On the open road, I can get rolling quite fast, guessing 15 MPH or so, and with not too much pedaling effort. I feel the geometry is virtually perfect. Don't need to raise bars, change stem, nada. Even the saddle is nice. Firm, but wide and supportive. Minor bummer the handgrips were a regular size (circumference) and I have big hands for this XL bike. I needed to shelve the nice, but small Targa lock on grips and put on my Ergon GP1's. But, that's it, I don't see any other mods on the horizon. Nice looking bike too. Non-glossy Silver with black and red accents. Nice triple crank up front and 9 speed 11-32 wide gear cassette. Shifts great and the brakes are quiet and stop well. Good size tires for city riding. No flats yet, in 2 weeks ownership! I ride on bumpy, gritty paved trails at times and this bike handles it well at moderate speeds. I've never had a bike like this before, just a couple road bikes and mountain bikes which I ended up using around town. This Sirrus is my favorite bike for city use, by far. U-lock mounted on frame and sturdy chain in backpack, I'll park it on any good rack and shop for awhile. I'm set, don't need anything else :)
