Yes, those look like the original shifters, I have the same bike. The seller probably doesn't know they have an indexing mode.

Wow, two Sirrus' in a row! I just got scooped on one of these yesterday. I am on the hunt! haha

On another note (for my newbie self) if someone says "size: 18 inch" what is that referring to and how can I compare it to frame size? Does that mean I just need to convert to cm? Thanks for any info in advance!

They are usually talking about seat tube lenght. !8" is around 46cm.

Trek 720 in Seattle. Looks well-kept and clean. There may be an issue with the fork? Hard to tell...

Over priced, but I kind of like these. For a cheap bike, these look good. I'd like it a lot more for ~$200...

Screenshot it. If you're on a PC it's hit the PrintScreen button and then paste the image into Paint. On a mac: I use Grab.
Then upload to a picture hosting website.

^Actually, it's easier than that--at least on my Mac. Just drag your cursor over the CL ad, including all the photos (I usually start at the listing title and select through the Posting ID#). Copy & paste.
