It does seem as though the cones are the weakest point. Interesting that postings on the later 700 version of this hub has 3/16” balls. They must have known something. I’m not out too much except my time and just a few bucks, so education is priceless.

I just completed lacing up my first wheel with the nice weinmann concave rim and the despised heliocomatic. Had a little confusion at one point, but it looks like my other rims now. I still need to tension and true it. If it self destroys in short order after I get the bike rideable, then I can do it again with a more sensible hub.
