    Who has TB14 wheelset in stock?

    I'm looking for a set of silver H plus Son TB14 laced to Formula/Origin8 hubs. Velomine is on back order until possibly August, they only have the black ones. I'm not finding stores that have them in stock. Suggestions are highly appreciated. Thanks!

    Not really.

    Those complete H+Son/Origin8 wheelsets, though, are built specifically for Velomine by Wheelmaster in FL and they've been out of TB14s for months.

    How much would it be to have a set built by you?

    If you're not stuck on using Formula hubs, everything - including wheel build labor and shipping - can be calculated right on our site.

    If you specifically want Formula (Origin8) hubs, we can order them. Contact us for pricing.

    I was looking at various wholesalers and it looked to be scarce.
    Unless a shop (like the one mentioned) has them in stock already, they looked like they'd be hard to find.

    US distribution for H+Son sucks. We go through enough of their rims that we buy them direct now.

    I just checked it out, and it'd be quite costly. Not at all saying you're charging too much. It's just that for that amount, I could be getting other off-the-shelf options with better quality parts. Thanks anyway!

    No problem. Custom hand-built wheels are pricey.

    and more often than not, worth the price you pay
