    Velocity a23 vs. H+ Son TB14 commuter wheelset

    I'm having my wheelbuilder friend build a new wheelset for me and I am having a hard time deciding between these two rims.

    I am 6'2", 180 pounds and commute about 10 miles a day at a somewhat fast pace over hilly urban terrain. I'll be running 105 hubs with double butted spokes (32 spoke) and 32mm tires.

    Anyone have experience with these for comparison sake?

    My take is that the Tb14 is more durable and the a23 probably is a bit quicker. But who knows.

    Either
    The tb14's look cooler (or at least more classic)
