Good to know! But what about the spacer kit? Will it come with the carbon handlebar? So that a Shiv Comp/Expert owner could take advantage of the Control Tower functionality too?

We are making both the Carbon and Alloy bars available in the aftermarket. Both bars will have very minimal decals so they will not mess up the mojo of anyone's non specialized bikes.

thanks. I saw that each of the models on the Shiv page was basically representing a different option but I didn't know if there were any others that weren't on the sample pictures. I of course like the matte black s-works bike the best....

I'd better start saving now.

Hey Buff,

Yes your Quarq crank sould work as long as it is an OSBB.

And Yes, the new aerobar will indeed be available in the aftermarket. We are currently trying to meet the needs of the production bikes but after we are caught up with the main production runs it will be available for sale. We are still finalizing the prices, but we how to be very competitive with both the aftermarket Alloy bar seen on the expert bike and on the S-Works carbon bar.

cheers

Specialized Cranks, Sram OSBB, and Shimano cranks (w/ the supplied adaptor) will fit all of the frames.

I was just asked--

Quote:
Will a wheelbuilder cover on a powertap wheel fit in the new shiv?

my reply:

We haven't tested any wheel covers. Our priority was fitting, at a minimum, the new Zipp Firecrest designs.

Zipp's Website says that the outer diameter of their Fircrest 808 CC is 25.3mm wide and this is a photo of the amount of clearance with that wheel.



I don't have a wheelbuilder cover to test.

Hope this helps,

That's not the area where a covered wheel typically rubs in a Transition (unless you do some custom "craft" work). It's back where the stays "kink" in near the hub.

And that kink is non-existent on the new Shiv. With the spacers/removed the brakes (and frame) have a ton of clearance for all of your aero wheel happiness.

Well...not necessarily mine, but maybe someone else's aero happiness ;-)

BTW, is the "kink" there on the Shiv TT? Just curious if it's just the new Shiv (shall we call it the Shiv Tri?) that doesn't have the kink...

I saw a new s-works shiv today. one of the ones that was shipped to bike shops. let me say that for everyone that thinks the head tube/ front triangle looks really weird / strange, it looks WAY better in person. i wasn't so sure to begin with, but in person, its sexy without question. it was even the full red colored one - black would probably look even better.

So does that mean that a wheelcover will work for sure? If so, this makes my Shiv/SC decision really, really easy. Still waiting for LBS to get one in so I can try my own wheelcover on it but I'm dying to know if anybody has confirmed this in person.

We haven't tested everything, but I believe you'd be OK. I'll check into this with our R&D shop here (not sure if I have wheel covers in the office or not).

Thanks,

Hi Mark,

I've just ordered a Shiv TT - are there any geo differences between the 2012 Shiv TT and the previous nosecone Shiv?

I've ordered a small on the advice of the dealer in Sydney. I'm 5'11". The dealer had a nosecone Shiv in the store in a medium and it looked quite big, hence the advice to go to a small. Also, I'll be doing some UCI-reg TTs so will need to get that saddle back behind the BB.

Also, do you have you run the Venge against the S5 yet? I'm currently torn between the two.

Thank very much.

Alex
