I have a friend that I ride with sometimes who was looking for a road bike. She currently has an older Trek mountain bike. But she wants to keep up with me on some of my longer training rides this year. So I have been keeping an eye out for a good deal on a road bike for her. Today I was in a thrift shop and found a Specialized Sirrus Triple for $95. It was in very good shape other than the handlebar tape and seat. I measured her for a bike frame and the optimum size would be about 46cm. The size of this bike is about 52cm. So I think it might be too big. I will have her try it though. But for the price, I figured I could clean it up and sell it for more than I paid. After doing research on Google, I am pretty sure it is a 1991 model. If it is too big for her, she says that her son can ride it until he outgrows it.
The specs are:
Cro-Mo frame and forks, Sakae SR Custom Modolo anatomic bend handle bars, 90 cm stem, Wolber GR 622 / 700c rims with Wheelsmith spokes, Suntour HA hub, Panaracer 700x25c tires, Suntour GL hub, Sakae 170 mm cranks, Vetta saddle, Suntour Accushift Plus indexed shifters, Suntour Edge front and rear derailuers, Dia-Compe BRS Edge brakes and brake levers, triple chainrings on the front, and a 7 speed freewheel on the back.
I plan to put a new seat on it, add a threadless stem adaptor and stem. I will wrap the bars nicely. I am also going to overhaul the hubs, bottom bracket, and probably replace all the cables and housings. It will be a sweet ride when I am done.
