For the other three, the primary differences is that the Sirrus has a cheaper aluminum fork, and the Trek has nice hydraulic disk brakes. My money would go for the Trek because of the brakes. the stopping power of disc brakes is always consistent in all weather.
I ended up picking up the Sirrus as the model they were showing had the hydraulic disk brakes and carbon fiber fork. I think it was a pretty good deal at the $800 clearance price.

I hope I still made the right choice.
Now time to get accessories...!
