HF-FH07/08 specs?

Does anyone know if the Shimano HF-FH07 and the FH08 have the same flange diameters and flange-to-center measurements? I want to build my first "practice" wheel(although I would be spoke stoked if it is good enough to actually use) with a 07 I have laying around, but I can't seem to be able to find measurements anywhere online (onluy for the 08s). Measuring myself isn't an option as for the price of a talking caliper I could buy a new frame...

Thanks,
LKW

Go to to a bike shop. They'll probably have a spoke calculator program where they plug in your hub and rim and it will tell you the size spokes you need.

I have a pretty comprehensive hub database, the -08s are listed but the -07s are not. Same at LBS. For the cost of blind-accessible calipers I could have a new bike...

Have you tried searching the tandem Hobbs email group?
It can be done here.

Archive Search: bikelist.org mailing list archives

This group predates the web and while it's use has declined in recent years, there is a lot of information available there.
