    Anyone have experience with the H Plus Son TB14 rims?
    Look nice for a more classic build, don't mind the anodizing wearing off.

    Rode this abomination into work today to test what stem dimension I need to get something custom made after an ahead conversion.

    Will also need a new custom made fork, as the v-brake pads barely fit between rim and fork, also clearance. Thinking Orlowski?

    The v-brake version looks like it's a bit better engineered with an additional mounting to the brake stud.

    This build has some pictures of bags attached, seems sketchy but looks clean.

    Where did you get the braze ons done?
    Hopefully somewhere in the 9000 area?

    Just came across a mention of this trip via wetransfer, I knew I've seen the pictures before!

    Interesting, which version? I see Pro and Race vulcanized and TLR

    Thanks for all the other tips, but not really fond of Supreme's.

    Strada Bianca it is then :)

    All black 700c 35-40mm all surface (but mostly road) tire recommendations?
    I have found:
    Challenge Strada Bianca in 36mm
    Panaracer Gravelking slick in 38mm
    Schwalbe G-One speed in 40mm

    Liking the look of the Panaracer over the Challenge, does anyone have any first hand experience?

    Switched from 52/36 11-28 to 50/34 11-32, the old chain worked but also switched to a new chain 1 link longer. I do like to keep complete drive trains separate.

    34/11-12 combo barely clears with the longer chain, but the longer chain looks more healthy on the 50/20-32 end, where I tend to be in before I shift down to the 34.

    All of this on a 2013 Supersix with stock hanger but B-screw all the way in.

    Fitted the 11-32 yesterday and turns fine in the workstand, cross chaining will be an issue but need to take it out to see if it really works as intended.
