    Or is it possible to lace a 28 hole hub to a 36 hole rim and have it ridable?

    27" is barely even used on department store bikes anymore, so the choices are going to be limited, and I doubt you'll find anything other than 36h intended for repair on older or lower end bikes.

    Why don't you consider using 700c? Unless it's a caliper brake reach issue you can make the switch, and never notice the difference. A 4mm reduction in radius opens you up to a much greater selection of rims and tires, with no negative consequences.

    If it must be 27" email the folks at Velocity. They offer 27" alloy rims and used to do special drillings on request (don't know if they still do, though)

    I'll probably end up going with 700c. I got a free coaster brake hub and I was going to put it on my Takara and make it into a porteur style bike. It has 27s on it now and I figured I might keep the cost down if I could find a rim to lace it up to instead of basically buying a whole new wheelset. Maybe I'll just try to find a 36 hole coaster hub.

    I expect the 28 hole coaster hub came out of a small wheel bike
    My 16" wheel Brompton uses a 28 spoke wheel

    yea 36 hole hub and a 27" wheel are a better combo, particularly if the Porteur load is going on the front of the bike.

    a 3 speed with a coaster brake perhaps? without a brake pad to match to rim diameter,
    a 700c wheel would be OK too
