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...
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.

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