I don't have experience with the R+, but I can say this:
1) I've watched a friend build up one of the the first TD3s. It's a great bike.
2) Rodeo Labs is great. Excellent customer service, & they're really building a community. In the last week I've seen people in their Slack channel for owners coordinating rides, talking gear, & helping each other with housing/entries for events like DK & RPI.
