Welcome to the forum! I presume this Sirrus has V brakes. You have a lot of options for replacements. To keep it simple, you can buy combined brake/shift levers that attach to the bar with just one clamp. Examples of these include the Shimano ST-EF51 and ST-M310. These are available in different colors (either black or silver), and in a variety of gear combinations (3x7, 3x8, etc). You can also buy shift levers and brake levers separately. Some prefer this route as they can set the angle of the shift levers independent of the brake levers. In this case, I would recommend the Shimano SL-M310 shift levers (again, available in 3x7 and 3x8) and then any brake lever compatible with V brakes (available from Shimano, Avid, Tektro, etc).

I have the same bike and my LBS said 700x35 will fit. Anything bigger will depend on how much the tires actually measure out once on rims.

For example my 700x36 xplor mso's on my other bike, a jamis renegade, actually measure close to 700x38.

There is a thread that discusses this topic. You can click here to read.

In short, I recently put 700 x 40s on my 2010 Specialzied Sirrus Sport. Each rim has a 14mm interior width and I've had no issues at all.

I replaced the stock wheels that came on a Giant Defy 5 with Shimano RS21's.

I just put 38mm Compass tires on my wife's 2015 Sirrus carbon comp, if that helps. Clears the fork easily. Rear tire just about squeezes in the frame:
