First post here in honor of my new bike: 2016 Specialized Sirrus Comp Carbon. Just picked it up this evening so I don't have any pictures yet (hope to post tomorrow) but I did weigh the entire bike (23 lbs for XL frame) and the Axis 1.0 front wheel/tire/rotor (3.8 lbs).

The LBS that I got it from will be fitting the plug and play fenders to it next week as part of the purchase. Apparently, they are only 'plug and play' once they are cut and drilled properly--according the LBS, that can be dicey.

In shopping for this bike, I looked at and rode the Cannondale Quick Speed, Cannondale Quick Carbon, Diamondback Interval Carbon, Fuji Absolute 1.0, Novarra Strada 3, Specialized Sirrus Comp Disc and Specialized Sirrus Carbon Elite Disc. I would have ridden the Giant Fastroad Comax as well but no one has those in stock anywhere. If you have any questions on those bikes or my impressions, ask away. I am coming from a 2007 Trek 7.3FX and the difference is striking.

Now with a picture
