The Requirement

This customer was renovating a Classic Eddy Merckx frame and had a set of renovated Campagnolo hubs and wanted a hand built wheelset utilising a suitable rim that would look in keeping but be a modern version with the capability of taking a wider tyre.

The Solution

The H Plus Son TB14 rims was chosen for this wheel set; they look and feel like a classic rim, the high polish finish and classy H Plus Son badge look very special and complimented the polished silver Campagnolo hubs, completed with the proven Sapim Race double butted spokes in silver with brass silver nipples finished with tradition Velox cotton rim tape. Both back and front wheels were laced in a traditional 3X style. The cost of the restoration was £220. The customer completed the build with a set of Vittoria Corsa black and tan tyres.
