Used 2008 Specialized Sirrus vs. new 2009 Diamondback Insight 2?
Used 2008 Specialized Sirrus (base model): ($300)
New 2009 Diamondback Insight 2: ($420)
The Sirrus is on CL, and I'm meeting the guy in a Home Depot parking lot tonight to take a look (sketchy?). The bike pic looks decent - maybe not much wear and tear.
The Insight 2 is available online (shipping/tax included), so I'd get it sight-unseen. I can do the final assembly and fitting. I saw an Insight 2 in a store that wasn't my size. Seemed a decent weight (maybe 23-26lbs?) and looks good. Sure would be nice to have a new bike!
[Edit] I usually MTB but am looking for a fitness bike that is enjoyable to ride - more interested in speed on relatively brief rides than comfort on paved bike paths. [/Edit] What do you think? Thanks!
