Rest in Peace Phil Wood.

Build it strong. Keep it simple. Make it work.  That is what Phil Wood had been doing since 1971.  I was glad to have met Phil Wood many times and very thankful to have been a user of his products.  Phil Wood hubs were one of the first products I saved up too buy as a young rider, and for years the only hubs I would use for cyclocross. Recently I sold a set of hubs that were over 15 years old and still worked as if they were brand new. After 15+ years, three owners and at least 5 sets of rims they are still out there spinning, doing exactly what they were intended to do.  That is the legacy of Phil Wood. 

Best wishes to his family and friends, He will be missed, but never forgotten.
