To be honest, based on the specs I saw the pricing isn’t crazy. Don’t get me wrong, at $10,000 it’s still a very very expensive bike (heck, you can buy a car for less) but you’re getting a complete package. The components and my price estimates:
-Dura Ace Di2 Hydraulic $3,000
-S Works Cranks and Power Meter $2,000
-Roval disc wheel: $1,500
-Roval CLX 64 front wheel: $1,000

That leaves $2,500 for an “S-Works” frame and cockpit. Not too bad, honestly.

...and yes, I know, people here have assembled “equivalent” bikes for 1/3 the price.

Agree! Just wanted to give an ack that I too heard a very realistic rumor that it's coming. Maybe time to send the 2012 shiv into retirement!

I think the hype on this bike is more than the P5-X. I can't wait!

My best guess would be to look at the new Venge and Tarmac for guidance.

Di2 and PM/cranks are cheaper than that. Wheels, probably too.

This thread is going to be on fire in just a few days...

I’m talking about “retail” prices for those items.

I believe MSRP is $13k for the Sworks and 9k for the Expert. If that isn't "crazy pricing" then I am not sure what is.

I've been told to reserve US $14K, plus tax of course. The first run should sell out quickly.

I'm sorry but that's just nuts. I was told "around $10,000" for the aforementioned build. That was by a salesman who has been selling Specialized bikes for >10 years. I thought $10,000 was "acceptable" given the build. However, $13,000 is just crazy. For that price it better come with a travel case and some wind tunnel time at Morgan Hill.

You should be able to walk in to your shop and place an order now from what I understand (but you won't really know what you are getting other than size and which of the two color choices.) And yes.. $13xxx... I sort of stopped listening after the "thirteen thousand" part.. but per the post above it might have been $13999.. but hey, what's another K, right. That was the MSRP price and what I expect you will see on specialized.com very soon. The new Venge is $12.5k for the sWorks version... Sagan edition is $13,250.) and a Tarmac is 12k. And really a Shiv comes with a ton more stuff then those bikes (all the aero storage, hydration, aero bar setup, etc... so it would seem logical that the Shiv would be more than the Venge. I remember then I thought $6k for an SWorks Transition in 2008 was a lot of cash for a bike 8-O. Whatever the case.. I hope the new Shiv is awesome and I am sure I will end up with one eventually to replace my current Shiv. I prefer the module route and building up my own creation.

Just saw an instagram post with a spy shot of the supposed new shiv...has everything talked about in an earlier post - disc, folding/ central post bars, and a behind the seattube hydration...if this is it, im out. Things ugly, bruh.

I was honestly just really looking foward to the old frame design with disc added...

Every new superbike has that kind of pricing these days. At least it sounds like this one comes with a powermeter and a disc as stock. Why is this pricing crazy, in the context of the market?

Keep in mind that’s likely a small or XS frame. The rear hydration won’t be as ungainly on a larger frame as it will like up with the top tube.

If that's really it...it's a really strange hydration solution (to me). I can't imagine all that tubing, and the ability to refill the hydration on the fly (on the old Shiv) was a big plus. That seems like a long way for the drink to travel. It seems rather "un-Specialized" to me. I was expecting a similar, but more refined, hydration solution on the new shiv.

It also doesn't look very polished, so hopefully this photo is a skunkworks prototype.

I like what I saw. The hydration on the back may have been too big for Sarah's bike. We will know soon!

I agree. I saw all the photos over the weekend and as a previous Transition rider and a current Shiv rider I was a little disappointed in what I initially saw but I am going to believe the comments on ST by those who have actually seen the thing that there is a ton of innovation and it looks better than we all think. I am guessing it is super light (for a tri bike) and the numbers are going to show it is very fast. I love my current Shiv but really wish it wasn't such a high stack bike... looks that they fixed that for sure. The new Shiv is very different from the new P5x or the Andean design trend and I am going to trust that the wizards in Morgan Hill know what they are doing and they came up with a bike that people are going to win on (and love the design and features.) Am I ready to walk in today and hand over a check for (gulp) $14k... no. But my dealer has a black/hologram on order in my size and I will be there the day is shows up to check it out.

Does anyone know details on the "other" color they are offering?... "Sunset" or something like that? Chameleon doesn't seem to be a launch color (the color Sarah True is riding for Kona.)

Agreed. After seeing how heavy these non-traditional frames are with no apparent benefit, I'm glad they stayed with a regular frame.
