People get stuck choosing between the H Plus Son TB14 and the Pacenti PL23. Both look great on vintage-inspired bikes. The PL23 has a tubeless profile, which is the deciding factor for most of my customers. If you need tubeless, go PL23. Otherwise, and this is most people, go TB14.
Here are some photos so you can compare side-by-side. The PL23 polish is a little rougher but looks good. The TB14 is very bright when new but develops a terrific patina through use and cleaning. It’s a matter of taste — both rims are in stock today so choose according to your preference.
