I am currently in the process of trying to sell my 2005 Hardrock Sport & am selling it for 2 reasons...
1) it's too big on me...I need a Large frame, not XL.
2) I dont really mountain bike... i want to use my bike for fitness/quick errands/commutes on bike paths.
The Specialized Sirrus has caught my eye & looks like something I would be looking for. I also looked at a Trek FX & a Gary Fisher something (forget the name). I tend to favor the Specialized brand & feel it's a pretty solid bike company overall. Like I said, I'm not going to be racing it....just a bike to commute, get some exercise/build my legs up & quick errands to save on city driving/gas.
The bike retails for $590...realistically, if I were to find a 2008 model left over at the LBS, what could I most likely get the bike for?
Does this seem like a good solid bike for me?
here's the color I'd want (wish they had white, but it's only in the sport model):
