Shimano HF07 Hubset?

Second question for the day :-) The NOS Burley Rumba my wife and I just purchased has wheels with Shimano HF07 hubs. I can't seem to find much of anything out about these hubs online as it looks like they were replaced by Shimano with the HF08's in short order. Is there anything I should know about these hubs? Are they doomed to fail in some weird way? It's probably a silly question since they're what we have and I don't think that we're going to be stressing them unduly with tons of miles or lots of weight but I'll admit to not knowing a ton about tandem specific parts before making our bike purchase and I do like to know about what I have and what to expect from it. Any input is welcome. Thanks!

They are fine they use the same parts as the M750 freehub. http://techdocs.shimano.com/media/te...9830728748.pdf Santana uses the same model with a longer axle this puts more stress on the axle than yours has and I haven't heard of a bunch of those breaking. If you are paranoid buy a solid axles from wheels manufacturing these will bend rather than break.

Thanks for the response, Charles! It sounds like we should get some trouble free years out of our hubs and hopefully our wheels.
