Availability of seat post with greater offset
Over in Melbourne to watch Ironman Melbourne and dropped in to see Andrew at Cyclespeed and he definitely has Shiv Seatpost with greater offset in his shop. dropped one one the bench.
He will charge proper money for it and delivers worldwide..

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

Thanks for your answers!
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.
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
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
