    Hello evrybody!!

    Hello everybody!!

    I am a brand new rider who, after having a bad experience with a second-hand bike, has decided to give it another try and get a new bike.

    My budget is the following: 250/300

    Use: I basically need the bike to commute, so I'll be using it on roads. However, there are quite a few hills in and around Brighton, for this reason I ended up by considering an Hybrid bike.

    Basically I am pondering pros and cons of the following bikes:

    - Specialized Sirrus 09
    - Specialized Centrum Elite 08

    Any piece of advice is more than welcome!!
    So, please feel free to let me know which one you would get and why or suggest other options, if you have any.

    Thanks a lot! Cheers!

    Riccardo

    I've had several since 1999 but have settled on my beloved 2001 Litespeed Tuscany and my latest, a 2015 Cannondale Supersix EVO 105

    Welcome Riccardo.

    There are at least a dozen responses to your question. Ask the folks in the Commuting forum about the bikes you're interested in. They'll give you good honest answers and offer a few other choices that may be better the the Specialized bikes.
    Good luck.

    If you are living in Brighton, you definitely need a bike which can handle mudflaps and racks. Make sure you have the proper clothing for riding in the damp weather, too.
