Quick question for everyone... I just downsized from a Shiv Medium to a Small frame and I noticed the bladder for the S and XS is smaller... but it seems like my bladder from the Medium frame fits in the Small frame no problem.... is there something I am missing? Why would Specialized make a smaller bladder from the smaller frames when the bigger bladder fits with no issues (and still doesn't bottom out.)

Just curious if there is an issue I am not aware of that I will run into down the road if I use the larger bladder in my smaller frame. Thanks!

I bent two big ring teeth this year, separately, did not hit anything, on a Specialized Pro FACT carbon 52/36 that came with the Shiv. This is the 2012 part. I believe the Spesh inhouse crankset was redesigned in 2013 and the current ones are different....

Anyway, it's time for new chainrings. Looks like a standard 110 BCD, 5 bolt, not hidden bolt. Not sure if this will fit:

Does anyone know for sure?

Edit: 110 BCD.

Can I get a double-check on Shiv Tri sizing?

I have a 2010 Cervelo P2, size 56, that I'm selling to a friend. So time to get a new bike and I have access to a nice discount on the Shiv.
  • I am 5’ 10" [178 cm], with 34" [86 cm] actual inseam length (Long Legs with a Short Torso).
  • The P2 (56cm) has a 80 mm X +25 deg stem (short & high angle), and is installed with 25 mm of spacers between the HS cap and the stem (max height.
  • Stock Vision base and extension

    • Pad X (center of the pad) = 460mm
    • Pad Y (top surface center of the pad) = 670mm
    • Arm pads have the taller spacers (maybe 20 mm tall). I end up with about 70 mm drop from the saddle to the center/top of the pads, based on a 770 cm saddle height
The Specialized sizing shows the 5' 10" height on the bubble between M and L sizes.

  • I know these charts are generally just a starting point for sizing.
  • I seem to remember reading elsewhere here,that you generally size down when you are between sizes.

The Cervelo seems to be about in the middle of the Shivs for the most part.
(the chart includes 2 different Pad XY locations I have used for different events.

Looking purely at the Reach and Stack of the frames, and based on my crazy tall & sort stem on the P2, I think it is best to go with the M Shiv. I think the L Shiv would be too long and require a similarly short stem like the P2.

The M seems to have enough stack and will likely end up with a similar base bar location once I use the stock 90mm X 6* stem. I checked the stem comparison (80mm x 25* on the P2 vs the stock 90mm x 6* on the Shiv) and that is 24mm longer reach. That offsets the 24mm shorter Reach on the M Shiv compared to the P2.

I am looking a confirmation before ordering, as I have to buy without the ability to test fit in person. We don't have any Tri bikes in stock in our area for live sizing and fit checks. Thanks for any guidance you can offer.

The conventional wisdom on the current Shiv is to size down--so Medium in this case for you.

I'm in the opposite boat, I'm 5 11" with a 30" inseam, so I went w/ a Large and it's about right for me. I could have made a Medium work--but this felt better to me.

Awesome! I really appreciate the size review, and it gives me confidence in my upcoming order.

Cheers :D
