Nice "problem" to have!

Choice? Seems pretty straightforward to me.

1. Will they be able to supply the '13 in the correct size? If yes, go to #2. If no, the end: 2017.
2. Do you want discs and/or capacity to run tires wider than 28? If yes, the end: 2017. If it doesn't matter > #3.
3. Can you try both for correct sizing? If no, the end: 2017 (I'm assuming shop more likely to have access to a range of sizes on the current bike.) If yes, > #4.
4. Try both, and decide which you prefer. They will fit differently. As you note, the '13 is a Roubaix frameset fitted with flatbar components. The current Sirrus is a purpose-designed flat-bar road bike: different reach etc.

I deliberately didn't mention Di2; to my mind, that's a minor consideration relative to the above. Just my thoughts!
