Why would you suggest to him, "ask me how I know", rather than just providing the information he is seeking?

I have a 2016 Sport Disk. I'm having the triple chainrings replaced with a compact double. Anybody else done this?

It's not exactly hard to figure out that I must own one, which is also written right under my avatar. I also said explicitly that I owned one two posts later.

It's obvious you own one so why wait until two posts later to state the bike details? Your comment further validates my original point.

"Don't ever mix bleach and vinegar. Ask me how I know."

While I find the phrase "ask me how I know" a bit silly, yet harmless, I don't see how anyone can not know what the person saying it means by that. It's quite obvious.

Of course it's obvious. Thatís my point. He provides additional bike details two posts later. Why not put those details in the original post?

Ad0 is a new forum member and he seemed to be looking for legitimate help. You and I simply disagree on the subsequent responses. Sorry that I upset you. Let's move on.

I have a Sirrus Elite that came with an SRAM double (2x10, IIRC). I bought the bike specifically to get away from triple chainrings. This setup has worked really well for me. Unless I am riding uphill, I am only shifting the rear derailleur.

I got my bike back from the shop last week and rode it a couple of times. I am really shocked that the difference between 48 and 50 teeth is almost not noticeable. The rear cassette that came stock was 11-32 9 speed. I noticed that I now have a 11-34 so the gearing on the lower side has changed. But all in all I'm happy with it.

Newbie here... to both the forum and hybrid biking alike.

Both my road and mountain bikes are fairly old and not that comfortable for a long day of casual riding with the family. So I recently started looking for a more comfortable bike that would be at home riding on the gravel and paved roads where we were about to go on vacation. I also wanted something I could easily attach a rack to and carry stuff to the beach, but not look like a beach cruiser.

My LBS recommended either the 2017 Trek FX2 or 2017 Specialized Sirrus Sport. I rode both back-to-back and although the decision was tough I chose the Trek. When I told the LBS I wanted disc brakes they informed me that they didn’t have an FX3 in stock and wouldn’t be able get one in before my vacation. Somewhat reluctantly I bought the Sirrus Sport.

After riding over 160 miles so far, I’m really happy with my decision. The bike is extremely comfortable when I’m riding by myself, but during the long, slow family rides my neck gets a bit stiff and my palms go a little numb. To combat this I decided to replace the stock bar with the Jones H-Bar for a more upright riding position. I tried swapping the bars tonight, but as I suspected, I need to either lengthen the cables or shorten the stem. I’m thinking the latter would be the better/easier choice. When I bring my bike in for the free tune-up, I’ll have them swap the bars.

I also ordered a Topeak rack and will likely get a set of fenders.

I’m thinking this will be my do-it-all, occasional grocery hauler, summer beach cruiser, rail trail rider, 30 miles on the weekend, family vacation bike.

As of this morning, Specialized raised the MSRP of their men's Sirrus line (didn't look at any other models) by as much as $100 per model.

These are all current 2018 bikes also, not new 2019s. I've been checking daily to see the 2019s when they go live so I was surprised to see new pricing for what are still 2018 bikes.
