I just posted a gallery on this bike -- I gotta say, it's pretty mean-looking. The brakes are very well-hidden a la Trek Speed Concept, but it uses a regular bar and BB30 means you can put on some seriously light parts.

Lots of lovely nude carbon on the bike:

Definitely on my radar. Any idea what is the weight of the module, availability and MSRP of the frame module only?

Its actually not super expensive!

With Ultegra stuff (that can be resold) and stock crap, basically a frameset for €4,000/$5,500/£3,500.

So not a theoretical price, at least approachable for most, and a very very nice bike!

Very competitively priced. Watch out Speed Concept. Hopefully BMC will come out with it's version of the Speed Concept's rear draft box. Currently there is a less than flattering gap between the TM01's seat tube and rear tire (near the top area) which is perfect for a draft box to be attached. Other than that, the TM01 looks almost too good to be true

I personally would want another handlebar, with dropped wide grips(ie closer to the ground), straighter angle for the brake grips, and a pointy'er barend, like Hed Corsair E.

But yeah, its close to perfect. The Di2 battery and brakes already being (almost) totally hidden away for aero is awesome.

Well that's one of the perks of this bike -- it uses a 31.0mm bar clamp, NOT an integrated bar. So you could put on a HED Corsair of you wanted, without compromising the bike's function or aerodynamics. Personally, I'll likely be putting on one of the old Easton Attack TT bars, which are wonderfully stiff and weigh about 410g complete.

Me too, agree the old Easton is a badass handlebar. But I cant find one and I've got other priorities myself(Watt) first so its gonna be a while.

Isn't the Hed's wide grip lower than the old Easton TT? (I like the badass look of very low to the ground wide grips and it should also make one more aero when standing up, often overlooked in TT, and relevant as one very often stands up with more than 12mph speed).

I'm not a huge fan of super aggressive drop bars like the Corsair drop (the Corsair also comes in flat, by the way). If you can be that low anyway, why not just stay in aero? The best times to be on the base bar are when cornering (for stability), and when climbing (to open up your hip angle). In both cases, super aggressive drop can actually defeat the purpose of what you're doing.

And for any occasions I'm not thinking of, when you really need to be on the base bar AND want to be aero, there's a very simple solution: bend your elbows more. In fact, doing so will level out your forearms, making you more aero than you would have been with more drop and straight arms.

The above, of course, is really my opinion. No disrespect to those who like the aggressive drop. But those are my reasons for not choosing it. I think the Easton Attack TT has roughly the right amount. Somewhere around 4-6cm is how I like it.

There are some pretty good points in here I hadn't thought of, good post!

But yeah I just like that badass low look :)

For me, the flat bar + spacers look is pretty cool. This is my bike at the moment:
