H+Son: TB14 Rim Jan 27, 2011

THE BOX(TB-14)-2.jpg

This just in from Tzu Sing of H+Son:

“TB14 was inspired by the classic aesthetics of rims from the era when steel frames ruled competitive cycling and benefits from contemporary improvements in rim manufacture and profile design. We have always admired the look of the classic box section rim. From sourcing double eyelets to crafting new molds for the valve badge and its hardware, we dedicated neurotic attention and careful detail to every aspect of this rim.

The pairing of a 23mm wide profile with a 23mm tire is fast becoming the industry standard for competitive road cycling. The wider rim adds stiffness and gives a profile that resembles a tubular tire. The advantage of this rim/tire profile can be felt immediately when taking corners as the tire is no longer shaped like a light bulb, flopping over with high loads.

The TB14 is made with the stiffer and stronger G609 aluminum alloy and features our unique and invisible welded joint.”

    You dont need machined sidewalls. Use odyssey breakpads( the clear ones ) these are for colored rims. I use them on my bmy and on my 30mm hplus rims without machined sidewalls!!!
