Does anyone know how to figure out which rear over the back wheel rack fits my bike? While researching different rear racks I found out that not all racks fit all bikes and ppl are talking about doing some elaborate modifications to there bikes to get it to fit. I would prefer just a easy install out the box. I googled it, but cant find any answers. Any ideas??

Most racks will fit that bike. What racks are you looking at? What features are you interested in? What kind of loads are you planning on carrying? My favorite is Jandd Expedition rack, but a lighter, less expensive one might suit your needs. http://www.jandd.com/detail.asp?PRODUCT_ID=FREXP Jandd makes lighter duty racks for about half the price of this one.
I will look into the link you provided, I cant even remember the ones I was looking at, I think the brand was Topeak but I just did a search on amazon and then got distracted with all the comments people were making about the rack not fitting. I am mainly using this bike to commute to work so I will just be carring the lock and maybe a little work stuff and lunch, nothing major.
1. Determine if you're going to be a trunk or pannier person. Just about any rack will handle the trunk, but not all racks are ideal for panniers.
2. If you are going to be a pannier type, then I'd suggest finding one similar to this Axiom, or that Jandd that was suggested earlier. That Sirrus has some shortish chainstays, so heel strike maybe an issue with the wrong rack/bag set-up.
