Hello, I'm new here and was hoping those in the know could help me with a decision. I'm trying to choose between a Specialized Sirrus Sport and the Elite model. Is the extra $230 for an Elite model worth it in your opinion? This will be my only bike and I'm probably going to be riding it about 10-15 miles a week on city streets mostly. The only difference I notice between the two is that the Elite has better shifters and an extra gear. Will that make a difference long term?
Is Specialized a good brand? I've been out of biking for awhile and I'm fairly clueless. Thanks.
