That's almost too bad, as I really like those high-flange cartridge bearing hubs. 7400 is tough to beat if you're not seduced by the aesthetics.
My Aerospace Pro came to me with those high-flange hubs laced to Mavic 27" rims that WOULD NOT keep a tire on board over 70 PSI. Spokes were rusted anyway, so I laced the hubs to Aryra 27x1" rims with DB SS spokes. Has run Paselas at 100 PSI for the past decade.
I have been challenged by my supreme command authority to downsize from 16 in the barn to 5 (and may the people who put up 'tiny house' videos on YouTube burn in HELL!), and the Viscount is on the bubble to make the cut.
