Quick release on all of the hubs, and I just realized I lied a bit. On close inspection, I've got two similar rims laced to high-flange Shimano hubs, but I see they're mismatched, one is Weinmann, one is Araya Light, both have the dimples, hence the confusion. Date code ZI on the hubs, same as another pair from the same haul.

I've got two regular Araya 27 x 1-1/4 w/o HP rims laced to a pair of older Hi-E hubs, but no raise at the nipples. Last pair I thought matched were actually Nisi. Go figure?
