^ Interesting info amediasatex, many thanks indeed

Just measured the internal width of a new silver anodised Halo Whiteline 700C rim = ~18mm

Compared to a polished silver new Halo Whiteline 700C rim = ~20mm

Normally I'd prefer 17-18mm rims - given that I run undersized 32mm Vitorria Randonneur Pro tyres (actual width 29mm)

But to be honest there appears to be little real world difference with the same tyres fitted and riding both wheels :wink:

I've got some TB14s as well, can't fault them other than the price but they do seem to be the absolute perfect mix of classic looks, sensible width and good build quality.

At £25 a pop, I'd also be tempted to try a pair of those Kinlin ADHNs when the Exals need replacing for my trusty old Woodrup. Just noticed that Hubjub has moved up here to Yorkshire too. :)
