Phil Wood Passed Away

84-year old Phil Wood (@PhilWoodCo) passed away today on his farm in Baxter, Iowa. Since 1971, the Phil Wood Company specialized in hub and other bicycle component manufacturing. In 1991, he sold the company to Peter Enright and other investors. Most of us first came to know Phil Wood's products through the popularity of their track hubs. Reliable, handmade in the US, hubs that set the standard for modern wheel builds. Let's all observe a moment of silence today for Phil Wood. His contributions to the bicycle industry are undeniable.
