I case the case of aero bike reviews... you are seeing the spacers mainly because they are not allowed to cut the steerer.
Here's another one. Giacomo Nizzolo of Team Dimension Data after his win of the sprint stage yesterday. I'd say the tall steerer tube/spacers is also due to frame design.
mine will certainly look about like that.
I'm excited for you. :beerchug: I can't wait for this crappy weather here in the US East Coast to end so I can put miles in the TimeMachine. :roll:

Would there be any issue with the internal cable routing on ICS stem/handlebar to bend like below for travelling purposes?

I think that bend is fine.

No, not at all. It should be sized to accept the full range of motion until the bars hit the top tube.

Thanks. Traveling soon and thinking of investing in a Buxum box.

If it turns out that your stem is too long to fit in that box with the bar attached to it ( doubt it, but it can happen if you have a particularly long stem, like the 130), you can undo the faceplate and the cable cover below the stem, and take the bar off. For security, you can put the faceplate back on the stem, thread the screws in partially, and hang the bar off some zip ties around the screws. This way, you're more free to maneuver the bar into the box.

Getting ready to order mine, in discussions with LBS on pricing the components (axs and 404NSW).
In the price offer I received the decals and stem are priced separately from the module, is that so? Find it weired...

The decals and stem come with the module. Not sure why you're LBS would charge you separately for these :roll:

decals are in the box... red/green/blue and I think white.( I'd didn't look close) Stem is part of the module... only reason to charge you more is if you wanted a different length then stock... I have the stock one (10cm) but I will order longer as well.

Should get :
Frame
Fork
Headset
steerer spacers
RD hanger
Seatpost
Stem
Saddle
Handlebars
Bar Tape
Thur axles
Water bottles
Water bottle cages
storage box
Stickers for colorway changes
stickers for frame protection
Garmin out front mount
Build manuals

Thanks a lot, super useful! What about the Garmin Mount?

The offer from my LBS was charging me for handlebar tape as well...not good...I get a 15% off the frame and groupset (axs) but still. I’ll talk to them next week.
Cheers,
Dorin

Oh yeah it's there too.

there is a spare hanger for the RD too.. make sure your LBS does not charge for that.
