Sorry, it was still having its plumbing installed, so I wasn't able to ride it. The LBS owner is trying to get a couple of the Expert or Comp models in for the showroom, but he's saying that whatever comes in has already been bought, so I think it'll be in the second to third quarter of next year that I'll get to ride one from his shop.

I would look up Mark Cote's posts (he rode it at IMAZ) or the guy who posted the red S Works a couple posts above ours in this thread.

Best of luck to you!

How did the 5 hour ride go? Interested in things like if you achieved your fit, did it feel notably quick, and also the weight possibly?

I'm looking at a pro not an S-Works, so your frame / componentry will be lighter but it's a guide.

For training ride, is the Specialized Virtue Aero Bottle a good fit on the seat tube for this new Shiv? I think it was design for the Transition...

I'm not certain that it won't fit, but the only bottle cage mount is on the seat tube, so it may not fit flush.

Is there a target date for the Pro release? Anything other than "next few months"?

Any insight would be GREATLY appreciated.

Side Note - Awesome article by Rapp in LAVA. Great insight!

I don't work for Specialized but I called up the two LBS stores that I deal with (both are Specialized concept stores) and according to them, the frames haven't hit the water yet from the manufacturing country (Taiwan I think) but they are expected to ship soon. The pre-ordered frames are expected to arrive here sometime in January.


Perhaps the Specialized reps on this forum can correct me.

I work at a LBS where Specialized is sold in Australia. February is our latest update, I can't wait cause I'm super keen for one! S-Works are arriving sooner, but Pro and onwards are February for us.

Am planning to run it with H3 front and H3D rear (the deep set), both in clinchers. Continental SuperSport 20mm on the front and 23mm rear, any thoughts on this set up? Any shiv owners running H3/H3D's? Would appreciate any input.

So does that mean you don't have the S-works yet?

The Virtue aerobottle was originally designed for the Transition and works well on the 2011 Shiv and 2012 Shiv TT with DT bottle bosses. It will work on the 2012 Shiv (Tri) but you need to drill out new holes for the bottle cage bolts on the cage to get it to sit correctly in the frame. The DT/ST angle works pretty well though.

SW bikes and modules will be the only available until early 2012 when the Pro, Expert, and Comp will be flowing.

I have ridden H3D's before but not on a Shiv. They are ripping fast wheels though are more susceptible to buffeting in crosswind than a traditional spoked wheel. These would be crazy fast on a Shiv though... If you can hold 'em down, there are very few (if any) wheels that I've seen more aero.

Thanks for that Mark, appreciate your time.

It's going to be a long a few months waiting for the Pro's to arrive.

are the specialized bars going to be available when the pro frame is? (i.e, will they ship at the same time). or will there be some delay before the aftermarket parts are on the market? this was probably already covered, but seemed pertinent with questions about availability.

Mark, what is the length of the crank arms on the XS Shiv Pro (I've not been able to find them on Specialized site anywhere)? I had a Retul fit done today and the measurements on the XS fit me nicely however the fitter recommended I use 165 mm cranks. Cheers!

They come stock with 170mm on the XS. Specialized doesn't make a 165mm today but the frame is BB30 compatible or you can use our Shimano press-in adapters (or Wheels Manufacturing's press-in adapters) to run a Shimano Hollowtech2 crankset at the shorter length.

The carbon and alloy aerobars will likely be a couple of months behind the Pro frame delivery in most markets.

The stack on these bikes is a real bummer for anyone suitable for P series geometry. Which I guess is not all that many these days, as apparently even the P5 won't have P series geometry. What the heck am I supposed to ride?!?!

You are not using the standard bar, which one is it, Zipp VukaShift? Do you know if is it possible to buy them alone (wihtout the handlebar)? Do they fit well with Specialized handle bar?
