Achieving Balance

Rumour had it recently that H Plus Son, maker of some of my favourite rims, had updated the grey version of their excellent all-rounder, the Archetype. The new finish is a darker grey, slightly more in keeping with traditional hard anodised rims, as well as with their beautiful (albeit rather weighty) TB-14.

Unless I’m mistaken, this rather lovely Genesis Equilibrium from Fitzrovia Bicycles is sporting the new Archetype, built on what I deduce to be 6800 hubs.

Aesthetically, only the lack of a [see blog name] is letting this ensemble down, but I forgive them because it is nevertheless a fine looking machine.
