I started riding again in September, after 45 years off a bicycle. (Still have my motorcycle)
In September, I bought a 2012 Giant Sedona, a nice bike, in the largest size they make that bike. (Large) LBS told me I needed an XL at the time, but I wanted to make sure I would ride it enough before I shelled out the money difference for the next model up. Well, after riding several bikes, I chose the Specialized Sirrus Elite. I am excited to ride it, since I put over 500miles on the Giant in the last 3 months of the year. I am hoping this bike will last me several years, and is more suited to the type of riding I have been doing. I ride mainly on rural hiways and county roads, not any mountain biking. Since I am in Kansas, I want to try the Katy trail, which is a RR track turned bike trail. Anyone else ride a Sirrus with any thoughts? It seemed to be a highly rated bike, and I loved it when I test rode it. LBS had to order color I wanted. Not in yet, so no pics.
