This bike looks amazeballs.

Any more pics? Particularly in the sun? Is there metallic rainbow flake in it?

EDIT: Also do I spy Specialized Rib Cage II bottle cages?

Hi this is my first post and I'm planning on joining the cycling community. Currently looking for my first bike, I'm pretty set on getting a Specialized Sirrus carbon however I'm on the fence on which model to get. Based on what I'm seeing online, I'm debating between a 2016 Specialized Sirrus Expert Carbon or a 2017 Specialized Sirrus Sport Carbon. Obviously the Expert carbon is a higher model but I'm not sure if there is anything to be aware of for the 2016 model. Any help would be great.

Got two sirrus expert 2017 and one vita elite 2017 for family. For city and tours and a bit of very light trail/gravel. Well thought out bikes. Impressed by the stiffness of the cheap e5 alu frame on the cheap vita elite. Not so much impressed by the wheel weight on either model. Thats heavy stuff.

How do i change stem on the bikes?
They have this integrated flowset.

Looking to remove all the parts on my 2015 Specialized Sirrus base model in order to give it a new paint job. Was wondering if anyone had any insight into what bike specific tools id need to accomplish the job. This is just as much about the new paint as it is about learning how to repair / maintain the bike completely myself. Anyways i have this allen wrench set and pretty much every standard tool you could think of just not many bike specific tools

Tools i think i'll need
Bottom bracket removal tool
Crank puller
rear cassette removal - not sure what tools are needed
i guess something to cut the chain
torque wrench

any tool recommendation would be greatly appreciated

I think the Sirrus is the sexiest hybrid on the market.

Axis expert deep wheelset weight?

Hello again, does anybody know what the weight of the Axis expert deep wheelset is? They came on my 2017 Sirrus Expert Carbon.

Thank you!

You'll need a complete set of metric hex keys ("Allen" keys). The crank puller and bottom bracket removal tool will depend on the type of bottom bracket you have. I'll use Park Tool numbers as a reference as you can easily find these, but there are very often other brands that work as well.

If it's a square taper bottom bracket, then you'll need a puller designed for 22mm crank arm threads, like a CCP-22 or a CWP-7. The bottom bracket bearing itself can be removed with a BBT-22. Remember, righty-tighty, lefty-loosey on the left side or non-drive side only! It's lefty-tighty, righty-loosey on the right side or drive side!

Assuming you have a typical Shimano cassette, you'll need a chain whip (like an SR-12) and a cassette lock ring tool (FR-5.2). A CT-3.2 is a good chain tool. I'd just get a new chain to put on when you're done. Size it according to the old chain, taking into account the master link (removable link).

You may also need something for the headset, but it's not likely.

I don't use a torque wrench, but it's not a bad thing to have.

Again, all of these tools are from Park, and they're top quality tools, but you can often get other brands locally that perform the same functions. There are also other tricks and workarounds. For example, I don't own a chain whip. I use a 1" socket on my small impact driver, with the lock ring tool, to remove the lock rings. I hold the cassette with a thick rag and just zip the lock ring off with the impact driver. I'd never be able to do that with a long wrench on the lock ring tool, but the impact driver puts a lot of torque on it in small bursts, so it comes right off.

If the 2017 Axis Expert wheels are the same wheels as the 2018 Axis Pro wheels on my Sirrus Pro (which I bet the only difference is the label) I'd guess about 50 kilos.

Really thorough answer, appreciate it!

Hello! Since none of you have put the wheels on your Sirrus Carbon on a scale, I just did that an hour ago. The wheels are Axis Expert Deep from a 2017 Sirrus Expert Carbon...back wheel 1115g and front wheel 896g...so 2 kilos. Not very bad for a stock wheelset...but considering the 1800 euro pricetag...a bit dissapointing.

For someone that puts in long rides (80-100km) with climbs on this bike...upgrading the wheels is a must in my opinion.

Sirrus Sport - Larger Tires / Adjustable Stem

Since this is the official Specialized Sirrus thread, I wanted to add a cross-reference post.

I recently decided to change up my Specialzied Sirrus Sport (2010) to create a more comfortable ride. I added an adjustable stem (0-60 degree range) and larger tires (Kenda Komfort 700 x 40).

For a complete overview of the bike updates, you can read post 164 within this thread.
For pictures, you can view the albums below.
