    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!

    Ok I'll do that,I wanted the comp carbon but i would have had to wait until mid june to get it. Why does it take so long to get a bike?

    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...

    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.
