This week we've got a real stunner of a wheelset for all of you who like a classic-looking wheelset. We don't see a lot of H+Son rims around here, but the TB14 has got to be one of the best-looking rims out there if you've got an eye for something like a classic Ambrosio with their counterbalance weight at the valve hole and very low profile. The machined and hard-anodized brake track combined with very shallow profile definitely brings back fond memories from when the Nemesis rim was the rim on the cobbles of the spring classics.
This wheelset makes the most of the classic look by going with the superbly-low drag and very lightweight White Industries T11 hub set in polished silver. The T11 hubs, with their slightly angular features lend a modern touch to the wheels and tie in beautifully with the squared-off box section of the rims.

It pretty much goes without saying that silver spokes are a must on a wheelset like this, but the slim profile and high polish of the Sapim Laser spokes does really suit the overall look of the wheels and it really ties the wheels together visually just as the spokes hold the wheels together functionally.

This week's wheel build of the week is another super versatile gravel set up that's equally at home on road or CX.
Astral's Wanderlust Carbon rim is originally designed as a lightweight adventure / gravel rim capable of running up to 2.5" tires. But given their rim profile (23mm internal, 29mm external) they can perform double (or triple) duty as a pure road rim or cyclo-cross race wheelset.
