    Need some help - Specialized Sirrus

    Hello,

    I was hoping some of you experienced folks could take a look at this bike and let me know your thoughts. Is it worth the asking price? Does it look to be in good shape? Thanks in advanced!

    I have that very same bike. First, it's from 1989. Second, somewhere along the way, that bike's been repainted, as that red bit along the front of the downtube/head lug/fork is not original. Possibly crashed, who knows, those pics are crappy. Third, what's with the quick release seat collar? Broken seat pin tab?

    Fourth, if I were ever to sell it, i'd be surprised if I could get $100 for it. Too many iffy things about that bike to buy it, let alone for $250.

    here's what that bike should look like, although mine's certainly not in the greatest of shape.

    Eff the King's Guard. Eff the city. Eff the King.

    If the bike fits and it has no structural or mechanical issues, offer $150, but pay no more than $200. Otherwise, just walk away...

    A chromoly steel bicycle will last just as long as titanium, if kept dry.

    And the pictures are from 2008? So the seller may have crashed again!

    It's an "ok" bike, doesn't worth more than $200 however..

    Thank you all for your feedback. I decided to pass. I'll look for an old schwinn/trek for around $300 instead. Thanks!

    Don't give up on the Specialized Sirrus. That particular bike might not be worth it,
    but the Sirrus in general is are great bike. Just look for one in your size from the
    last 5-10 years. I own two. If you find one in good condition, you won't regret buying it.
