level the saddle, that would make your ride more comfortable. then, this beauty would be perfect!

B17s are supposed to be angled up rather than level like most saddles; the back part is supposed to be parallel to the ground, otherwise, it acts like a slide when the saddle is "leveled" and you end up sitting on the wrong part of the saddle. Thank you for the nice words!

I think they're worth the price. They did not come as true out of the box as my H+Son box section rims, but for what I paid for them, I don't even mind.

I don't think you'd be disappointed with the Sun rims, but if you can save up a bit more for TB14s, you should do that. I bought the Sun rims because I wanted this bike to be my "budget" build that I could build up relatively quick without spending too much.

I bought some tb-14s for a 1984 Fuji Espree conversion I'm customizing. Mines are Silver, but they look great in black too :)

Nice. Yeah TB14s are pretty awesome rims. Understated beauty. Update me with your conversion when it's finished!
