the tb14s are quite a bit heavier at 490g, versus the a23s which are 426g. they both come in straight black. the tb14s are eyeleted so they should be stronger. question is how hard are you going to be riding? do you think you will need the extra strength and sacrifice a little weight. im personally a fan of the open pro.....

im looking into buying a set of low profile rims so let me know what you pick or if you find anything better than these three rims. good luck

Another suggestion would be Velocity aerohead. Strong and light. Weighs about the same as the open pros. around 420 grams

You won't really notice a difference between them. They weigh virtually the same, look the same, and perform the same. Just whichever you can find cheaper. I'd go with tb14 if I was you.

Hmm it's for a rear wheel pairing with a philwood :)

So tb14 is more durable ? Cause the weight of tb14 close to deep v right .

Anymore more suggestions ?

hplusson just came out with a new rim that is around the same weight as these low profile rims but is a little deeper profile for stiffness.

anyone else see the rims? i think they are called the archetype

Those archtype is dope. They are lighter than the TB14's and I like the aero look. Reminds me of a bullet.
