    After riding my RM01 for a couple of weeks, I noticed a noise coming from (what I think is) the BB area. The sound isn't mechanical, but it's a extremely rapid rubbing noise of some kind. Wish I could describe it better. It's only heard when pedaling and it isn't loud, but obvious in quiet conditions. Has anyone had this issue? I'm having the mechanic attempt to replicate the issue. If he can't, I plan to re-seat or reassemble the BB.

    Yes.

    I use ISC Racer's Tape Surface Protection Tape. Otherwise known as helicopter tape.

    I remove the crank and anything on the chainstay and run a length of it all the way from the bottom bracket back to the dropout.

    First I use blue painter's tape to make a template so I can cut it perfectly around the bottom bracket and wrap it correctly around the stay and cut it right near the drop out.

    Every bike I have is done like this, it's basically invisible once done and offers complete protection of the entire stay, something many people could use. Great for clean up too.
    use a torque wrench

    Correct. That side chain stay will end up looking glossy.

    No matte versions that I'm aware of that are top quality. I just deal with it.
