In terms of integration, it's by far one of the best I've seen. The trek box, cervelo bottom bracket, specialized drink bladder, and the out front bento box.

It looks the absolute business. If I was on the hunt for a new TT bike, and wanted a top end everything, this would be top of the list

Disc brakes 🤦🏻‍♂️

Interesting one. 

On the one hand, weight is not typically a big deal on the TT bike.

On the other hand, either is braking.

I think disk brakes are not so aero though - so that's not cool on a 20k speed machine.

Only because of the drag. Pad to rotor drag. 

And yeah the aerodynamics. 

 

Just nit picking though 😂😂😂👍 it's a sexy bike*.

 

 

*not the colour scheme.... 😬🤢

looks 100x better than the Shiv 

I’m pretty sure my 1998 Apollo 7 speed looks better than the Shiv Tri. 

But I mean nothing is as ugly as the Diamondback ‘thing’ and the PX series from Cervelo... I do have a bias against beam bikes unless its a Zipp 2001 or Softride. All the new ones are just as bad as the old ones (I unfortunately rode a Dimond)

I love the look of the beam bikes especially the older ones like tHe Falco V, although that bike has had shocking reviews. The Dimonds also look nice. The P5xs are pretty fugly, slightly better when you actually see one. I want an old beam bike for my wall, but they demand $$

I passed a P5x on my Giant in Busso. Grinned all the way to T2

P5X is also very impractical and bloody heavy.

I actually met him months afterwards on the Freeway Sth bike path. Nice guy.

Come and do a tri over here, good brakes are 'somewhat useful' 😁
