Hi

Am new here and not exactly a genius so hope someone could advise.

I have 2 bikes a Trek Sport 800 and a Kona Hahanna, the trek has not done a lot the Kona approx 12 miles.

I would like a flatbar road bike something like a Specialize Sirrus as I am advised to stop running to keep fit.

My question is what are my choices here what would you do in my position given what I want to do

Thank you in advance

Tiler

I'm not entirely sure what you're really asking us?

Ah ok sorry.

What I am asking is

Do I sell on the 2 older bikes and buy the sirrus ?

Do I keep one of the older bikes and upgrade it ?

If I buy a new one what are the views on the Sirrus, could I buy better for the same sort of money ?

What would be my best option ?

Sorry again

Tiler

If it were me, I would pop some slick tyres on one of your bikes and get riding. After you have a fair few miles under your belt, you will be in a better position to know what you need.

Then go to a shop and try as many bikes as you can to see what suits you.

Specialized make pretty good bikes on the whole.

Hope this helps

I agree with the above. A slicked-up MTB with 1" tyres is almost as fast as a road bike.
