About two weeks ago my $50 garage-sale-special crappy bike was involved in a minor bike accident that completely destroyed its ridability (it truly was a piece of crap bike). Being that there are several more months of nice weather left, I decided to splurge and get a new bike. After much research I decided that the Specialized Sirrus was the best hybrid for me. Everyone I talked to confirmed that the quality of components on the Sirrus are a good deal for its $500 price tag. It’s perfect for medium-length weekend rides and the occasional commute over the Brooklyn Bridge to Manhattan.
The local bike shop I bought from in Brooklyn had no red 2005 models left, but they checked their stack of recently delivered bikes and they had a brand new 2006 model in silver. So new that even Specialized’s web site isn’t updated yet with the 2006 models.
