Ok, thx for the info. I'm also not really appreciate the original extension shape.

Can I ask you a last question? Your setup for the computer seems great (compared to my Cateye's Strada), what are you using?

for my SRM power control i just used 2 profile computer mounts. 1 ,long 1 short fit perfictly between my bars
just join them with the mounting bracket of the power control, very neat and tidy
if your bars are slightly narrower you can just trim the longer mount down
cheers

Mark, Thanks for the rapid reply - much appreciated. Would it be possible to post a few pictures of the Pro Shiv and a Shiv in XS size? Thanks.

What are the chances that Triathlon rules change making the Shiv illegal to be more aligned with UCI regulations?

I bought a $250 Blue Seventy Skin Suit in 2007 which was perfectly legal at the time, then they changed the rules and I only got to use it in one race.

Does Specialized have any assurances from WTC, USAT, ITU etc. that they won't make the new Shiv illegal in the future?

That`s a good question. I`m sure Specialized have an answer about this.

I was wondering this myself, would suck to drop $8-10,000 on a bike and then they come out and say its no longer legal. Considering P5 instead when it comes out, but would really like to get the Shiv if I knew it wasn't going to be outlawed, not that it is, just considered it could.

I wouldn't trust what any of the alphabet agencies say they will do in the future. However I'd be carefull of buying a non UCI frame if I was going to do bike TTs even where they are allowed now, or ITU races. I doubt run of the mill races will change anytime soon.

I still owe you the Pro pics, but here's an XS (Red) next to my size S (Carbon) that I raced at IMAZ. I don't really think of the bikes as XS-XL like normal -- i.e. I could fit the XS-M easily, and due to the stack I like to run, the S works best. I could also fit the XS well but would opt for this if I went more aggressive.




Man, makes me want to go race again...ah offseason.

We've worked really closely with the federations (USAT, ITU - draft illegal rules, WTC, etc.) and have gotten no indication that more stringent rules are on the way. We've followed all equipment guidelines enforced by these groups.

It's good to know that you worked with these agencies. Question, have you heard of any other companies complaining that you aren't ITU legal? I guess they can always just do something different themselves too, but that takes time and captial, and instead they may just start complaining and trying to get some regulations in place. Just thinking off the cuff. I really like the bike and would love to get one, just want to be comfortable spending that much money before I do. Plus still need to get on one and make sure it works for me, hoping to do that in January!

HI Mark,

I'm very close to upgrading my well used Transition... Specialized are still favourite, but I'm not sure which frame to go for, Primarily I ride TT's - almost none of which are UCI restricted. Aesthetically, I much prefer the TT version, I also like the lower base bar position... but would the Tri model be faster..? The roads round here are generally poor quality and far from flat, so weight and comfort are also factors...Any reccomendations...? .I hate making decisions..!

Hey Mark,

Looks like you zip tie an S-Works Carbon Rib Cage between your aero bars? and maybe another one on the back?

Love the look of the black Shiv you raced in AZ. Will that graphic/paint scheme be available to consumers?

The pros are beginning to ship globally. Not sure if any have hit stateside yet. Will likely be within the next month.

I was hoping you could recommend a size based on my arm pad stack and reach measurements? Both measurements are taken in relation to my bottom bracket. I'd really like to know what size shiv tri would fit me and still allow for optimal handling.

Elbow pad stack 630 (center of BB to Center of elbow pad)
Elbow pad reach 475 (center of BB to Center of elbow pad)


Iíve done some searching online and it looks like the stems can be adjusted from 60-90mm and the stack of the base bar + the pads is about 80mm. I couldnít find anything anywhere saying now much fore/aft adjustment in the pads is possible. I could be completely off base here but Iím guessing I could ride a small or medium frame with the medium only giving me about 1cm of downward stack adjustment if I decided to go lower in the future? Iím wondering if my reach would be too much for the small frame and cause handling issues?
