H Plus Son TB14

The TB14 is a medium width rim with a nice smooth retro design. The box section rim has double eyelets so spoke nipples can't fall down the box section when youre trying to lace the thing into a wheel. As with other rims from H Plus Son the finish is excellent with the weld being practically impossible to find. Machine sidewalls, and excellent finishes - super shiny, hard grey or black anodised - complete the package. The rim has a bit of trim round the spoke hole to restore the balance.
We like the width. The internal channel of this rim is about 17.5 mm wide and it is 23 mm wide overall. By way of comparison the Mavic Open Pro which has been the go-to road-sport rim for a good many years, is about 13.5 mm and 19.6 respectively. So 25mm, 28mm and even 32mm tyres will sit much happier in this width. As, arguably, would your 23mm road clinchers.
