Trek 7.1 FX Vs Specialized Sirrus

So there is a spring sale going on right now, and I have to decide today!

I getting 7.1 FX (17.5 Red) for $369 + Tax and Specialized Sirrus for $400 + Tax.

I drove both and honestly I could not tell which one was better, may be because this is my first bike after 15 years.

They both are giving me up-to $70 tune up service for a year.

Please help me decide.

I don't know the specifics about either bike, but given that they sell for about the same amount, they're probably equal in quality. If you can't feel any difference in performance or comfort, then get whichever looks better to you.

I'd go for the Sirrus just because it has a freehub and not a freewheel.

That's an important distinction that I agree with.

I own both. Had a 2015 Trek FX 7.4. Great bike. Paid 700 (10% discount). Prefer trek on lower end models. Upgraded last month to Sirrus elite Carbon. Just a better bike than FX at the upper end of spectrum. Can't go wrong either way. Think the design on Sirrus is more modern and updated though.
