Official Specialized Shiv Thread
Quote | Reply
Hey Everyone,
My name is Clayton Anderson and I'm the Community and Social Media Specialist here at Specialized. As many of you have seen, We have introduced a new bike today at Kona, S-Works Shiv. I would like to extend my help with any questions that you may have. I will answer as many as I can and will be more than happy to get the information from our engineers and designers if needed.

Any wind tunnel data comparing the new shiv to the UCsillyI-approved shiv and/or any other fast tri bikes?

Why no 'bottle' bosses on the top tube for custom bolt-on bento pack storage options? These very handy and versatile top tube bolt bosses are right now already installed on the the trek speed concept, the new giant TT bikes, and will also be on some other upcoming (and very slippery) tri bikes.

Advanced Aero Top Tube Bento Packs for Road, Gravel, & Triathlon....Direct-mount and ZeroSlip strap-mount Speedpacks, all made in the USA.

How does it fit you? It seems "short and tall", I thought you were a "long and low" guy.

Suffer Well.

Waiting patiently.

yes a cost breakdown would be most excellent.

also what's the diff between the S-works and Pro modules (and expert/comp if any)? weight? i'm seeing 11r carbon vs. 10r carbon - what's that mean for the functionality of the bike?

Look at the specialized site. Has 4400 for the expert DA, 2800 for the frame set, 5100 for RED...awesome price points.

another question:

will the current nose-coneless shiv still be made/sold as the UCI- legal version?

Yes the Shiv TT Module (http://www.specialized.com/...1101&scname=Road) will continue to be sold as the UCI legal Time Trail Bike. The SHIV is a triathlon specific platform.

I'm curious how this compares aero-wise to the original Shiv with the Nose-cone (since that's the one I have....)

Would like to know if testing showed a center pull front brake system better than having the front cable exposed on the left front side of the head tube. I would venture a guess that having just the cable running down the front would have been more aero than having the bigger housing sitting out in the wind.

Also is there enough room when the bladder is in to also place maybe a tube, lever and Co2 inside?
