Test-riding the Sirrus Sport
I’ve been test-riding bicycles, and so far my preference is for a Specialized Sirrus Sport sold by Siskiyou Cyclery Inc. in Ashland, Oregon. It’s bright teal blue, has a diamond frame and with a 700-cm wheel size, its height and weight are ideal fits for me. Most significantly, it has three- and nine-gear shifters, which would effectively double the gears available to me when I ride my seven-speed Schwinn. Considering the range of elevations I face when I ride around Ashland, it will be nice to have extra assists when climbing steeper hills.
