I have a 2022 Sirrus x 5.0 and want to fit a rear rack. Specialised recommended their below adapter but I cannot figure out how to use it. Has anyone else used it and could you advise? There were no diagrams and I just canít work out how it fits

First I have to admit I'm a bit jealous, beautiful bike! I don't see anywhere on the internet on how that part is fitted however I did find this vid on how someone fitted a rack on a carbon frame Diverge:

MSC MY19 Sirrus Carbon Rack Adapter

According to website:

"As the carbon frame models do not have traditional rack mounting points on their seatstays, an additional part is required to fit an Elite Rack, S199900059. This single stay adaptor mounts to a bolt hole beneath the seatstay bridge. When using the single stay adaptor, the carrying capacity of the Elite Rack is reduced to 15kg."

Just attach it to the hole below the seat.

Thank you, I think I watched that one, but it uses a collar around the stem, not the adapter proved by Specialized.

Thank you for this. I can see the hole but I just don’t see how the other end works with the rear rack. I just wish they had sent a simple diagram. The adapter is circular whereas the usual post attachments are two flat aluminium parts with holes for the bolts to fit it to the rear rack. I just don’t see how this adapter is connected to a rack. I just need a picture!

New Frame?

I have 2016 Sirrus Carbon expert that has frame damage. We tried an at home repair and that has not worked well. Has anyone moved their components to a newer frame of any type?

Praxis lists the Zayante Carbon only with TWO chainrings and puts it at approx 620g in that configuration. The 40T ring I have is 138g so it might be safe to shave close to 100g once you factor out a ring? Looks like the new system is possibly just short of half the weight of the OEM give or take. Maybe 520-550g?

Just an observation and warning...if you do remove the OEM crankset via that anemic main crank bolt, you might want to order a new one to have on hand. That said, I obviously re-used mine after taking it off and I re-installed to proper torque specs but used 242 (blue-mid strength) Loctite quite generously. Yesterday my cranks were noisy when I was doing a lap around my neighborhood before stripping them and pulling the BB. The main crank bolt was hand tight and the crankarm came off in a super easy fashion.....just like the recall bikes suffered in '19-'20. So, if you break that nut loose, be ready to red loctite it back in or face the consequences. It's clearly a crappy design and I already feel better being rid of it.
Weighed the 170mm 40T OEM crankset at 823g without pedals.
Replaced them with Ultregra cranks and a custom 42T at 631g

Hello! Been looking at Hybrids including the Sirrus X, Trek Dual Sport and similar but am also considering the Sirrus 3.0 as it has great gearing and seems like it might fit my riding profile. Was wondering what the largest tire people have been able to shove onto these more recent versions. It comes with a 700X32C, would like to replace with 38 or 42 if this is possible. Any recent experience bumping up width on the plain (non-X model) Sirrus?

Sirrus 3.0

I just recently sold my Sirrus 3.0 and don't think you can fit more than the 32mm. I also have the Sirrus X 3.0 and max size for that is 42mm. That bike is a blast. Sirrus 3.0 was set up pretty much to be a flat bar road bike and is sleek and fast. The X is better for all around riding though from paths, commuting, hardpack and gravel. In addition you can always email Specialized and they will let you know. I don't think the Dual Sport is worth the extra weight of the forks that don't really do much for a hybrid. A dedicated MTB bike is better for that. Big tires under lower pressure is like having suspension.

Usable gears on a 2 x 11 cassette

I am new to the world of 2 x 11 cassettes. My other bikes were 3 x 8 or 9. On my new Sirrus 6, I have 18 usable gears. On the small chainring, the two smallest and hardest gears cannot be shifted into, and on the larger chainring, the two largest and easiest gears cannot be shifted into with a great deal of rattling. Is this normal? I have taken the bike to the LBS since I bought it and had them adjust the gears.

Yes, it's called cross chaining. The larger chainring in the front is primarily for the smallest cog in the back and the second smaller chainring in the front is for the middle to largest cog in the back. This keeps the chain as straight as possible so there is less strain and wear on the chain and derailleur. Chains can actually break on prolonged use of severe angles.

I run 28s, 32s, and 38s on my Sirrus 4.0.

42 will likely be tight.

Not all combination are designed to be used, but the trim feature on the FD widens the usable range. There is nothing wrong with your bike.

So after a bit of research mainly looking at the Cannondale Quick and the Specialized Sirrus, I've just ordered a Sirrus 4 X - the Future Shock seemed like the perfect compromise between the regular Quick/Sirrus and something with the fork suspension of the Cannondale Quick CX. So pretty happy with my choice.

I'm not really too precious about things like colour and the specific components, which seem to vary between 2021 and 2022 models. As far as I know I've ordered the 2022 model, but is a bit confusing as its from Evans in the UK, as shown on their site. (I can't post links yet, but its a sort of deep turquoise green)

With the colour listed as SmokeCoolGrey22.

But everywhere else I've seen it, that colour looks quite different, and is more of a dark grey.

My preference would probably be for the grey as shown on the Specialized site, but would be interested if anyone can shed any light here - it feels like the Evans Cycles site might just be displaying the wrong image on their
page?

The 2021 Sirrus 6 is no longer available on the Specialized website. I did find it in Bike Archives. I was pretty lucky to get the bike in April this year. It seems very few of the Sirrus 6 were made.

You can still find both if you use the Specialized stock check. There are not many left of either but there are a few out there. If the shop selling it is not close then might be good to call and see if they'd ship..

I am currently looking at a getting a new bike and am considering between the 2023 Trek FX Sport 6 and a 2021 Sirrrus X 5.0. A shop about 2 hours away from me has a 2021 Sirrus X 5.0 (the red/orange color) in stock and in my size. They've offered to sell it for $2250.

While I love my Sirrus X 5.0 Redwood, I believe the Trek is a better value. I plan on doing upgrades over the winter, but if that's not your thing, I think the Trek has better stock components.

The Trek is the better overall value and it comes with carbon wheels.

I live in an area where I can also buy in Portland, OR where there is no sales tax. If I buy the Sirrus it's in Washington so I'd need to pay tax but if I buy the Trek I would not.. All things considered the Trek is only about $200 more..

If I get the Trek I'll get a Garbaruk cage extender for the GRX RD and slap on either an 11-46 or a 11-50 cassette for it over the Winter.

I love Specialized bikes but I am leaning towards the Trek. A corporate Trek store in Portland ordered me one in size L and it should be here on the 8th of next month. If I decide to go with the Sirrus I can just cancel the Trek and get refunded in full..

Decisions, decisions..

Sirrus x 5.0 upgrades

Hello, I wanted to share with you the upgrades Iíve made to my Sirrus X 5.0.

1. Groupset GRX/XT Di2
2. DT Swiss CR 1400 wheelset.
3. Continental GP 5000 TL 32 mm / SKS mudguards for commuting
4. Pirelli Cinturato H 40 mm for gravel rides.
5. Tubus airy titanium rack.
6. Apidura framebag.
7. Specialized Ti bottle cages.

I love the bike, fast enough for group rides with the Continental GP 5000, very capable for climbing and very comfy for descents.

I still want to do some upgrades, better brakes, carbon seatpost and maybe a carbon wheelset.

Saludos desde Mťxico!


Commuter mode.

Gravel mode.

Hello. Wonder if i can ask some advice? I have a 2020 Sirrus X Comp Carbon. I've noticed recently the forks have developed a lot of play within the frame. I can't see any obvious way of tightening things. Has anyone had experience with this?

Many thanks

If that is the bike you have, it has Future Shock, and therefore there is no obvious way of removing play in the headset bearings as would be the case with an ordinary threadless headset. There is still a compression ring, but the bearing preload is applied through a collar/some small screws (bolts) rather than through the top cap bolt.

There are quite a few good Youtube videos on this process: here's one example.

2020 Sirrus X 2.0: Tire Question

My X 2.0 has the following rim size:
700C disc, 22mm depth, 21mm internal width, 32h and 700-42 size Pathfinder Sport tires.

What would be the narrowest tire I could put in this rim size?

I have around 4000 miles on the original tires and just today ran over something that flattened one of the tires. So, it might be a good time to get new tires.

As I understand things, the Pathfinder Sports are a decent all-around tire and I would go back to them. But I wanted to explore a tire more suited to my use: mostly road and paved trails.

What are your thoughts friends?

Thanks in advance!
