I have a Specialized Sirrus 2014 equipped w/ disc brakes. I'm quite happy with it for my commutes, yet after after spending a year with it, I kinda still long for the drop bars.

What components would need to be throw out and replaced in order to give my Sirrus drop bars? Does it generally seem like a good idea to rebuild a hybrid in this way?

(What I like about Sirrus are disc brakes, tire size, fenders and rack -- all very practical for commuting and reason for me not to get a proper road bike.)

  • Which Sirrus model is this? The answer depends on whether it has mechanical or hydraulic disks, though both are going to end up expensive and lot of work. I would suggest selling the bike and getting a cyclocross or touring one.

  • you need a drop bars and a pair of shifters. However, this may change the geometry of the bike since a hybrid has a longer top tube than one on a road bike.

  • I get you don't have the rep for a comment but this is not a valid question. I am really surprised this has not received an answer. Or least a duplicate.
