Anyone have a 2014 sirrus comp disc?

I ordered one last week but its still not here. So i would just like to know if anyone else has one and also curious about how much it weighs and if the Axis wheels are reflective.

Be sure to post photos when you do get your bike, either a Comp disc or Comp carbon is on my wish list!

KonaRider,

I have a 2014 Comp Carbon that I gave myself as a present for my 60th birthday. It replaced 1993 RockHopper which still sees some cargo carrying duty. Mine took about a month to arrive after I ordered it and my LBS said it would take longer than it did by about two weeks. Frames made in China are probably the biggest reason there's a long lead time.

Here is the welcoming committee checking out the new arrival after bringing it home. I absolutely love the bike which I use for my daily 16 mile commute and almost everything else. The AXIS wheel logos are reflective.

I'm looking at getting a Sirrus Comp but I was leaning towards the non-carbon because I will also hook up the kiddo trailer to the rear axle and wasn't sure how well the carbon would deal with that. Any ideas?

I'll refrain from making any guesses about whether or not the Sirrus Comp Carbon frame would deal with a kid trailer but I can offer pictures of the rear axle of mine. The aluminum dropouts appear to extend into the seat and chain stays far enough to support the fender mount bosses and the forward mounting bold of the caliper.

Thanks for the pics - it looks like it would fit - I may have to dremel the hitch a tiny bit [just round it out a bit at the top] though if I go that route.

Picked up the Sirrus Comp Carbon Disc yesterday. I ordered it mid-May so it wasn't too long a wait. Heavier than the Roubaix they had in the LBC, which I guess is the disc brakes, crank, wheels, seatpost and handlebars... but still a great value for the money. Shipped with 23 tires instead of the spec'd 28's so I had Specialized All Condition Armadillo 28c tires put on. (I'd like to try 32 or 33's but none in stock to try - i checked with Specialized support - they think if the tire is true to spec they should clear.)
Finish was nicer than show in the pictures I've seen at Specialized and else where. Nice glossy black and mat gray with yellow green accents.
I tried to take some pictures of points of interest around the bike...

Welcome fellow Sirrus Carbon rider. They are outstanding bikes.

I'm running a Sirrus Expert Disc Carbon with 700x32 and they clear fine, it's tight though. I also pull a Burley trailer no problems.

If it doesn't have mounts,then no. To fit a rack,if there's a hole at the seatstay bridge,you can use a road bike rack that mounts from there to the skewer. Otherwise,you'll need to replace the seatpost binder with something like this and use a rack that mounts to the skewer.

No it doesn't have rack mounts - but there is the center hole for mounting of brakes. And then there's the seat post mounting rack option...

When I bought my 2013 Sirrus Carbon, the bike shop told me not to put a frame-mounted rack on it. I had to swap out my seat post for a steel one, and use a post-mounted pack. This has worked OK for me, but a real step down from a bike rack.

After I read somewhere in this forum and some research on the web that carbon fiber seem like it can have severe damage internally to it when there's a knock and require special care to the tools we use to prevent over tighten I'm afraid to buy it but maybe just ALu body .

Use a torque wrench,and don't do anything stupid like mount a trail-a-bike to your CF seatpost(yep,friend did that) and you won't have issues. If you're looking to haul serious loads then you should look into a touring or full-on cargo bike,but for regular daily stuff that should be fine.
