There are more - for a start there's a non dimpled version of the 210 - serrated braking surfaces sometimes featured on 210s but less often than not. With non-dimpled 210s there's also 26 x 1 1/4in 32, 36 or 40H and 26 x 1 3/8 in 36H definitely and I think 32 and 40H earlier. The dimpled 210s in 27 also came in 32 and 40Hs. And A124s were also available in 40H and I think 32H. The 210s have a couple of variations at least logo-wise, all over serrations on braking surface, two lines of fine serrations and no serrations.
