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.

You know it's going to be a good day when the stem and seatpost come right out.

(looking for a picture and not seeing it? Thank the Photobucket fiasco.PM me and I'll link it up.)
