My comment was based, of course, on tubulars never being 27", and back in the day of 27" wheels being predominant in the U.S. on all but higher end road bikes, tubulars were the true race wheels (and still are for that matter). And again, they were never 27" size.
Also, please keep the context of my original response in mind. I'm not trying to be hard to get along with, just trying to point out that a 27" rim laced to a Suzue hub is not a racing wheel. I've got just such wheels in my basement, they're perfectly functional for what they're intended.
