Phil Wood, Rest in Peace

The founder and namesake Phil Wood passed away yesterday at the age of 84. His contribution to the world of cycling will not be forgotten. I am lucky enough to have quite a collection of hubs and bottom brackets and one of my prized possessions, my Phil Spoke Machine. I build a lot of wheels, and I would be lost without it.

I never met the man, but I am forever in his debt. Rest in peace Phil.
