Phil Wood - I Never Knew Bike Parts Could be this Fabulous!
He died recently but his company lives on. Thousands of bicyclists gathered last night at the Phil Wood Company before heading out on their ride. Tours of the company were available and while I never thought machine shops were anything I could get into, I ended up loving the tour.
Phil Wood hubs are gorgeous and the design and manufacturing process was fascinating. I had no idea San Jose was home to this very special company.
