The Shiv is my first Triathlon bike. I thought I needed it to complete my gear for a full Ironman race. After riding a Road bike for 5 years it took me a while to get used to the aero position and geometry of the bike. My first impression was that this bike is performing well when you ride it fast. After 10 rides the bike fitted me as a tri suit. Long rides and short intervals both with great performance. I extended the water reservoir with two extra bottles behind the saddle and a gearbag in the middle of the frame.
I am especially happy with the service of my Specialized concept store dealer in combination with this bike.
