It is a particularly strange looking bike but I've never noticed any time bonuses granted to me in a race based upon my stylish outfits.
I'm interested to hear how the water "bottle" integration works. It seems like a long way from the bottle to your mouth.
I also wonder why these high end niche manufacturers even bother with accomodation for anything but electronic shifting? If it's truly a Superbike, why bother with inferior components that add complexity and cost to the frame?
At the end of the day it's still about making money on a product and with that you have to look at price points. If I'm not mistaken they only offer three different options and two of them are electric and the third being a frame set only. As for the bottle the hydration unit is much aligned with the shiv in terms of placement and having a drinking straw coming out of it. Personally I like that I can remove it and wash it. I also prefer that it hold a lot more fluid that the shiv. I owned the Shiv Sworks and I never even attempted to use the hydration unit because pulling the bag and putting it in was a pain.
