Made to give you an aerodynamic advantage, the Specialized 2011 Shiv TT/Triathlon Bike comes to you in limited production at a retail price of $5,500 for the S-Works frame module alone.

The 2011 Shiv also has brake barrel adjusters located on the bar ends. Internal cable routing is in place and the frame also features a nose cone which keeps the front brakes out of sight and does the steering as well.

The Specialized Shiv allows for multiple seat post adjustment so you can shift your seat forward or to the rear. It also allows multiple pad adjustment height where you can rest your elbows and arms comfortably based on your desired height.

The frame weighs about 850 grams. For the meantime, UCI deemed the Shiv to be too aerodynamic…

Kinesis UK shows off its new cyclocross frame called the Crosslight CSix2 for 2011. The frame is full carbon-made and a first for Kinesis. It weighs about 1kg and around 1.8kg if you include the forks, headset and clamp. Tested by National Cyclocross Champion Jody Crawforth, the CSix2 received excellent observations on performance.

Photo in frame shows the early prototype model. It has wide mud clearance and cables are routed along the top tube. Cable stops are canted so you won’t experience any entanglements while carrying the Crosslight Csix2. It can also take on outer cable housing to the rear, making the shifting precise. The fork is judder resistant and the bottle bosses will not be included in its final design.
