Anyone whose ridden a fixed wheel bike for a while will tell you the need for good wheels; they are one of the few pieces on such paired down bikes, and they have to put up with a lot.
The bedrock of a strong fixed wheelset is the hub, and with the BLB Track Hub we set out to bring to you the best value for money, choice
of colours and performance possible. The sealed bearing design ensures continued durability all year round.
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. From sourcing double eyelets to crafting new moulds for the valve badge and its hardware, H+Son 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 aluminium alloy and features our unique and invisible welded joint. Rims are anodized after machining.
High quality rim tape. Protects the tube against mechanical damage – with style.
Steel ED finished, enabling the addition of colour to steel without compromising the strength! Sold in pairs.
