Pro bike: Tony Martin’s Specialized Shiv TT

Tony Martin (Omega Pharma-QuickStep) begins the 2014 season carrying the rainbow stripes of the World TT champion. It’s largely a case of as you were: it’s his third title and he remains on the bike that has delivered him the titles, the Specialized Shiv TT.

However the German powerhouse swaps 10-speed SRAM Red for the new 11-speed version, meaning he’s got some extra teeth to combine with his preference for massive chainrings.

Team mechanics tell us Martin’s setup remains identical to last year, though one departure from last year’s World Championship-winning bike is a reversion to Specialized Turbo tyres from prototype TT clinchers.

As would befit the World Champion, the bike’s been given a paintjob to match. Click on the gallery for more photos of the multicoloured time machine lounging by the sea at the team training camp in Calpe, Spain.
