I’d trade wheels with you. If you’re serious about switching it up.

Yo, if you ever wanna get rid of this i'd buy it off you. We don't get the Kilo TT in England, as much as it's regarded as the 'beginner track frame' of the US, they don't seem to want to sell it here, and we don't have anything close to it imo.

thanks! they look better than the normal ourys imo, but i mostly got them bc they're 8 million times easier to install/remove, and i swap bars a lot, spring here is really windy so this bike has compact drops right now.

i have the mavic open pro's to formula's and i absolutely love them. unless you just want the look of the tb 14's, i have to suggest the open pro's instead. i know it's a constant debate. i'm really hard on wheels, with these arkansas roads.

My TB14s laced to Phil Woods have been great so far, I like them a lot. I have thought about open pros though. The roads get pretty nasty here with the freeze-thaw cycles every year. I'm originally from Springfield, MO though so I know they get bad down there too. The roads just suck anywhere there's any sort of weather variation. haha

i forgot you had that phil wood set up,
i said this because i had en experience with both rims before laced up and the hplusson wheels would flex and bend but the mavic wheels were very strong and stiff without being laced up. understanding that the tb14's are probably a smoother ride, i just have more confidence in my mavic wheels taking on as many potholes as they experience (i need a better front light) and not becoming un true for as long as possible. if you ever try the open pro's i'd love to see your opinion on which you like better. but don't go hit pot holes on purpose. haha

also i think the h plus son wheels are wider? make the tire less like a lightbulb shape so i've heard the feel more stable and a lot like tubeless. you could confirm i guess.

Yeah, I'd definitely like to give the open pros a shot but I'm feeling TB14s for this build, I think I might get OPs for either a road bike or townie build at some point. And yes the OPs have standard 19mm width and the TB14s are 23mm, so it helps the tire expand into a rounder shape, makes for a really smooth ride and stable cornering, supposedly feels a lot like tubulars but I've yet to ride tubulars so I couldn't say.
