    Would be a bit easier if you told us what chainset etc it has, specialized as with all bike manufacturers reduce the spec year on year normally so that would help identifying it easier. I will hazard a guess and say 2011 ish as it looks similar to one I had before I saw the light and got a proper bike. Ps only joking sirrus wasn't a bad bike, just heavy compared to by road bike.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    You were correct it is a 2011 comp just asked the seller and had to gauge from there answers which year it was. I'm looking for a cheap second hand daily commute bike (only about 5 km) what would you recommend?

    If you just want it to commute then btwin flat bar road bike from Decathlon or carrera subway from halfords might be better as new options. Loads out there, I found the sirrus heavy compared to a lot of other bikes but my commute was 11miles each way.
    Second hand can be a way forward to get a better bike if you know what your looking at, if not you could end up with a load of rubbish. Buyer beware and all that.

    Look for a used Carrera Gryphon, its been discontinued now but it was very much a flat bar version of their road bike, lighter and nimbler than the Subway.

    My (extensively rebuilt over 11 years) weighs in at 9Kg before I add rack and guards.
