Hi,

I recently bought a Shiv Pro frameset and right now Im searching for the right bar. I got the impression, that the Specialized aero bar adds a lot of stack but I just could figure out the precise numbers. Can anybody help?

This doc should help too: http://www.specialized.com/.../SHIVStack-Reach.pdf

Hi! I own a shiv comp rival, and im planning on upgrading my stem with the specialized shiv stem and the seatpost with the 37.5mm setback, is this possible? is the seatpost and stem from the high end shiv compatible with my shiv? is specialized selling shiv seat post and stem individually? thanks!

The seat post is compatible. The stem is not compatible with your bars. You will require the carbon bars to use the integrated aero stem.

There is a very good chance that if you contact a Specialized Concept Store they will have an offset seat post available.
I had to ask for the extra seat post for my wife's S-Works and I did not receive any of the left overs from the build kit.

I want to buy the seatpost with greater offset too. Was told by the local Specialized store that they won't be available in Aus until June or July. Everyone locally is using theirs so I can't buy an unwanted one.

Which hardcase would you guys recommend for a Shiv Pro size Large? (With the nosecone, if that matters....)

There are several bike cases to choose from on Amazon.

I'd probably either drive with it in the back, or I'd FedEx it to my destination. I won't let TSA touch it.

Thanks a lot....this might be helpful.

Nevertheless Im in search for alternatives. Id like to put one of those new DI2 groups on the frame, so I want to tuck away as much of the annoying cables out of the wind. Is there a bar/stem combination, were one could actually put the front junction and the battery control inside the bar/stem. Ive seen custom modifications from team HTC....

Yes,

I would very much like to see it when it comes out in July too. Im not sure if Im completely sold on it yet. Im currently using an Xlab Stealth 200 on my Shiv. While I know it kills the purpose of having an internal bladder it does however give me more options while preparing for different tri distances. For example, Ill be using this setup for San Juan 70.3 - 2 Prolong bottles in the rear, 1 BTA, and salt pills/solid nutrition in the bag. I did this because Im still uncomfortable filling the bladder on the fly to be candid.

Also, does anyone know if you could purchase the Specialized Aero bar system with a 100mm stem included? Ive been looking and it seems as though you could only purchase it with a 90mm stem. Am I right?

Hey, my needs might be different than yours but for a 70.3, I run the fuelselage filled with Perform and 1 BTA bottle with Perform that I swap out on-course. BTA is primary nutrition/hydration and If for some reason I run low between aid stations, then I use the fuelselage. I stick a couple gels up my shorts leg or in the back pocket and that is all I have for "solid" food.

In a different thread I posted about converting a Spedfil bottle into a make shift FuelCel and someone else said they use the Bontrager Speed bottle for this. I think it's much cleaner and what I'll run in Cabo for my flat kit.

RE Buying a seat post with a greater offset

I gather you are in Australia - have you tried Andrew at Cyclespeed? He did my wife's S-Works and I asked for, and received the post with the offset.
I did, however, have to ask for it.

I am guessing that their thinking would be something along the lines of having fitted the bike to my wife there was no need to give her all the left over bits.


I do know that Cycle City in Auckland have at least a couple of the older shiv posts lying around (not compatible with Shiv Tri) because I bought a saddle rail clamp to put an old saddle of the wife's offset seat post.


There IS a difference between the clamps used for the Shiv TT and Shiv Tri but they are swapable

There are a number of places to hide the Di2 components. the easiest place to put the battery is the seatpost. I have mine in there. As far as the junction box goes mine is inside the BB shell in the frame. I suspect you are refering to the front connector when looking for a stem to hide it. Pretty sure it is not out yet but TriRig has a stem that would allow this.

Nice bike.

But I'm curious, did you drill holes in the top tube to mount the bento bag? Or are you using double sided tape or velcro?

Well, the tube is so far forward that is really doesn't interfere at all with the Speedpack 483. Or am I missing something?

But what definitely can be an issue with the Shiv and a bento box is the bladder opening. And the Speedpack 483 is the only top tube pack that can partially mount over the bladder opening and still be removable and yet also be 100% secure (no slipping, no sliding) on the Shiv.

No. I just used the screw that currently holds the black specialized top cap in place. Just get a small washer and avoid tightening it down too much. It stays put! I've been really happy with it. I've also ordered an extra top cap so that I could drill a hole through it and use a larger screw to hold it in place. However, I may not need to do so now.

Yes that would be awesome. I'm currently working on converting one of my bento bags to accommodate the bladder opening and rubber cap. It shouldn't be too hard. Ill just need to drill a small hole to hold it in place with the screw all the while cutting a larger hole underneath the bento and gluing it to the underside of the bladder.

Sorry if this was already covered, but does the specialized aero stem work with other brands of aero bars or just the Specialized shiv ones?
Thanks!
