I like it, though I'm not really sure why it's so relatively conventional looking if they decided they were going to give the UCI the finger and just make a bike for triathlon.  They also should have learned from Cervelo not to have integrated water bottles.  Wonder how the bike handles when you have water sloshing around in your head tube.

Hopefully there's a bladder in there that can be cleaned.

From a report on VeloNews:
 
The Shivís Camelbak-style bladder, called the Fuelselage, is hidden in the head tube and down tube. The bladder slides into the frame through the top tube directly behind the stem. Itís sealed with a rubber stopper that can be removed to refill the bladder on the go. The hose pops out of the frame behind the stem and lays onto the aerobar extensions. Specialized cleverly placed a magnet in the valve and a matching magnet in a strap that can be positioned anywhere on the bike to hold the hose and keep it from flopping around. Two valves are available, one is a bite valve and the second is an upturned opening without any seal. The bladder holds a little more than 20 ounces of fluid, depending on frame size, and can be removed from the bike to be cleaned.

Hum, I hate to admit it but this bike is likely to fly off the shelves at that price point.

all you would need is a good wheelset and maybe a few lighter parts (since I'm an idiot of a weightweenie) and it would be definitely interesting.

Challenge it because it is unreachable.

I agree alex.
 
I did not expect to be looking at that one for a tt bike, but it is looking more appealing for next yr.

Having seen the results of not promptly cleaning a camelback, is there anyway to change the bladder on the shiv? If not that's a serious design problem.
Do you think we're gonna make it? / I don't know unless we try / you could sit here scared to move / or we could take them by surprise

Yes you can take it out and it seems pretty simple actually. this bladder can contain about 20 oz of water.or about 600ml if you prefer

And if you want more aero and another bottle you get one bottle sitting horizontaly inbetween the TT bars.

I definitely have to stop reading about TT/Tri and get to it instead.
