I'm a huge fan of Selle. I rocked the same SMP saddle for years and absolutely loved it. A night and day transformation in comfort.

Specialized controls pricing of their bikes so typically the price you see online is the one you pay. As a result there's not much insight to share.

Specialized changed the gearing on the Sirrus Comp from 2015 to 2016 to give it more hill-friendly gearing as well. Add in that it has the carbon fork and lighter frame and it makes it a winner IMO.
