My Specialized Sirrus w/ Disc ExtraCycle

I love this friggin thing!! I think I'm the only one one Whidbey Island who has one. Hell I don't even see another commuter most days going to and from work.

I don't know about those of you who put this thing together in an hour......my hat is off to you. I would say it took me more like 2-3 hours all together. After about 50 miles I can say I do not regret this purchase one bit. It has already hauled a bunch of stuff home from the grocery store.

Anyways..... hope you like. The bike is my well used Sirrus. I went ahead and did go with the rear disc kit.

Love the way it tracks with a load or without a load. I don't feel like it turns bad at all. When I turn my head to do a cager check it tracks like a laser!

Again.... love this thing and thanks to this place for giving me tips on my install.
