Sorry but Won't take any BR "review" as information with value. I do like a lot their stories on a product design, their brands offices visits, or product presentation but that stops there. Their "opinions" are either very influenced with limited "let's challenge their claims" or with a degree of technical ignorance (or if I had a sarcastic approach"sold to the brands"): their last "how Spe make the most accurate power meter in the world" was quite a caricature.
You seem to be confusing BikeRadar for BikeRumor since the former has no such article. I can assure you Reuben, Joe, Jack, Ben, etc. at BikeRadar are very objective and honest in their reviews.

Sometimes they dumb down their video content, but that’s because most viewers want dumb. Their “Top 5 MTB for 2017” style videos generate more views than say, their latest 24-hour race video.
My bad... indeed read too quickly on my phone... thanks for pointing it out.

Just had a look at one of these fully made up in my LBS. It also seemed relatively light weight.

However I'm still baffled as to why 3T haven't made their own integrated bar/stem combo for this? I know it would eat into their profits for their other stems and bars but it seems bizarre to have a Vroomen designed aero bike with such an ungainly stem and bar config. Also the other review is right, the cable routing for both the brakes and groupset is terrible-worse than my 2012 S5 and that's saying something.

At first I was like, “pussies, stick to your convictions!” but this thing is re-growing on me now, I hated the 1x version when it first came out, then started loving it, I then went to see one in a shop and it made absolutely everything in the shop look completely outdated. I literally couldn’t look at anything else that day from Cannondale/Spec/Factor/Colnago etc.

Now this thing has gone the same way, the front mech and double go a long way in softening that wheel cut out which can only be a good thing, unfortunately still too rich for me and if I’m suffering discs I don’t want to see any cables so will wait for V2.
