Nice build. I've had the 01 THREE for a month or two now. It's both rock solid and super smooth. Some random points:
The OEM bar tape is great
I also thought about Arundel cages, but my LBS built the bike with Elite Vico Carbons, which have definitely exceeded my expectations. Nice to see an RM specced with Arundels, though.
The bike came with tubeless DT wheels, but shod with non-tubeless Vittorias/inner tubes, which I thought was a bit weird at this price point. Already replaced them with 28mm Hutchinson Sectors I had lying around. Apparently only the top specced RM comes with tubeless tires.
I will end up slamming the stem. The highest setting would be waaaay too high for me. However, for those needing a (very) relaxed position, this is the good news.
The integrated computer mount is a Garmin version, which requires Wahoo users to buy the frankly ridiculously priced adapter.

Arundels are on my 4th bike now, can’t destroy ‘m it seems.

Definitely one of the bikes highest on my “want list”. Definitely looks better with Boras
Arundel everything works well. Even their bar tape is really good

Very nice! Can I ask what headset spacer you have? Is that the "low cone" with two spacers? or the "high cone"?

Thanks,
Chris

Looks like the low cone to me. I have a similar setup for now. This will change, however, as the position isn't that low in actual fact.

Having just received my 2020 module, I can attest that it does not come with tape

Really nice Roadmachine... did you also get the decal bomb with the framemodule ? I didn't get the handlebar tape like you did, and I really like the look of it. Shame it's wasn't in the box. But I got the decal bomb with my Teammachine, and used the golden one.

Hi, nope didn’t get the decals.

Maybe in the future some custom decals.

Upgraded it recently with the timemachine aerostem and aerobar, wto60, xtr discs and a flite boost kit carbonio.

very nice upgrades!
especially timemachine aerostem and aerobar
Does this combo also results in a lower total weight ?

Sorry, did not weigh the parts separately as LBS fitted them. As shown it sits at 7,4 kg.
