    Another method for getting a dishless wheel.

    Buy a 20 year old Phil hub and hammer on it for 12 years until it gives up the ghost.

    I would be surprised if they didn't take care of that for you... Did you try to ride it at all on the way out? Probably not worth the chance of totally taco'ing the rim to do it - but it might have been a fun watusi ride!

    i'm curious what happened there.... did torque on the freewheel cause it to thread on further than it was supposed to, and consequently caused the spoke flange to squeeze over whatever lip was keeping it in place?

    Once I unlace it I'll be able to see just what happened but I think it was just the torque that did it. I'm still a Phil fan though.

    am i reading this right... that hub is 32 years old? Even if it was only 20, that's still a long time.
    Aluminum has a shelf life, and it's amazing that the rest of the hub worked well for that long. Usually a hub dies internally long before the body. I actually consider that impressive.
    Props to Phil.
