Suggestions for a new bike - specialized sirrus vs cannondale quick 5
Hello, first post here. Looking to buy a bike mostly for a daily commute to office which is a total of 20 km and longish rides over the weekend. I've tried and short listed the specialized sirrus and cannondale quick 5. Any reasons I should be picking one over the other? Price is similar so are the specs.
Thank you for that. Yes the ride felt pretty similar. The specialized is definitely from a better bike shop. The cannondale though I think felt a touch lighter maybe because the fork on the specialized is steel. I'm sure you've figured out I'm a novice.
I tried both of them. The Cannondale felt smaller and slower. It came with Kendall tires which even though the same size as the Sirrus tires, seemed
to have a bigger profile. I went back and rode the Cannondale twice, but I bought the Sirrus. It just plain felt good. Ten months later it still feels great.
When I went for a second look at the Sirrus, I went for a ride. As soon as it started rolling, my mind was made up.
