I guess if that imagery doesn't make your heart swoon, then this one just ain't for you. ;-)
No swooning happening here over that bike or Hasselhoff chasing bad guys with it.

I bought a 2014 sirrus comp disc on Saturday. Its not here yet because my Local Store had to order it. If you are thinking about getting that bike make sure your local store already has it in your size or can get it in your size quickly. I take a L frame, but if i needed an XL i would have to wait until mid June to get it in that size, same thing with the comp carbon for $1,700 I couldn't get it until mid June so i went with the Comp Disc. This may help you make your decision. It actually saved me about $500.

I weigh 150# and ride a Trek FX-2. Are you saying that I could increase the efficiency of my riding just as much by losing 5# as compared to going with a 5# lighter bike. Every time I get on a lighter bike I just love the performance. I remember when I went from a heavier Schwinn to the Trek. I thought I was in heaven

I proposed the "weight" question in another subforum & while consensus says the bike weight vs bodyweight makes no difference in the aggregate, I'd then go on to propose that the difference between a 23lb bike and a 25lb bike is damn near nothing at all considering any one of us can sweat 2lbs difference one way or the other.

Heck, tote 1 or 2 water bottles along & you've made that much difference & then some.

Get the cheaper bike until you can afford something in the 17lb range w/ 23cm tires that hold 150psi, signed by Mark Cavendish!

Indeed, and I'm still not 100% sold that there's just no difference whatsoever, but if you'd care to read the thread I started on top of whatever else is out there on the web, it's certainly a constant debate......

Yet another weight discussion......Bike weight vs bodyweight.....

It's not unlike the current science talking about how 23mm tires running 120psi might not be faster-rolling than, say a 28mm tire running 85psi.

All of these things are hard for my mind to digest, but maybe it's just so???
