Fahmyboy,

We have very similar fact pattern. I too have long legs, short torso, and only road Shimano DuraAce. I bought a Comp in the fall and switched out the Rival for DuraAce. I didn't notice the weight difference much (the real weight comes from the stock wheels) but the shifting is much smoother. One thing to consider is the Shimano doesn't have BB30. I went with FSA K-Force Light instead of an adapter on Shimano. It's ok but I am still not sure it was the right decision.

Anyone out there try using sworks cranks with the new Di2(9070) on your shiv or do you need a Dura Ace Crank?

Hi Sachems,

The SRAM rival group set seems so clunky compared to Shimano. Not sure if its in my head.


Other than the wheels, what are the mandatory upgrades in your opinion.

I would and did replace the drivetrain. The comp has a mix of SRAM rival and apex. I agree it is clunky. I just meant that I didn't notice the weight difference.

Which drive train do you recommend that wouldn't break the bank. The reason that i'm asking, is that I'm going to the bike shop this weekend to get some work done, and I may upgrade if the price is not bad.

When I asked the bike shop what their recommended upgrades were, they recommended that I go with the "pro" which is twice the price.

I was offered the same deal for the pro. Instead I bought the comp and then bought a new DuraAce drive train online (FDR, RDR, Shifters, Chain) and asked my local bike shop to swap them out. You have to be a little careful with this approach because they would prefer for you to buy all the components at their shop. My shop was very agreeable since I was buying a 2012 bike and paying for the labor. The DuraAce looks awesome on it.

I looked through a large portion of this thread and did several searches on this.

Has anyone added Di2 to a 2012 comp? I'm thinking of upgrading from dura ace to either di2 ultegra or the new dura ace di2 9070. I'm concerned about running the cables internally and mounting the battery.

Any help would be appreciated.

Your bike should have come with them. Have you checked with your dealer about this?

No, there was no spacer-kit, they said that this is not included at the shiv comp.

Unless the Euro market is different to every other market that I am aware of, they either lied or are mistaken. The full bar kit came with my original Comp.

Thanks for the information, it seems to be different in europe.

So I still hope to get them somehow.

Hello,

I am looking to buy a Shiv and ran across a used (in good condition) 2012 Comp Rival for ~$2000. Understanding i wont get a warranty buying used I'm trying to decide if the price is good enough to take the risk. I have looked on Ebay's completed auction listing but have found very few of these to compare prices to. Can you tell me how common the Comp Rival is found used and what you have seen them going for?

Thank you in advance.

When I received the build kit for my Shiv there was a small S/S widget leftover.
I believe it inserts into hole that allows the derailleur cable to pass through the bottom of the frame.
The noodle shown then slots into this S/S cap

Note this is different to the adjustable noodle used for the brakes.

As a side note - I replaced my brake cable with I-Links and found the stirrup to locate the cable was too short to use the correct
cable end. See how the cable end does not lie properly

I do not own a Shiv, but I wanted to ask a related question.
If you spend 6-12K for a bicycle: Is there insurance available that will pay to replace a shiv if you crash and crack it?
(not a derail attempt, just an honest question for someone like me without replacement monies). Thanks
