    I don't think there is a more elegant tool in all of cycling than his spoke cutter.

    Thanks, Phil, for keeping the grease in and the grime out.

    I could honestly watch that video for an hour. What a beautiful piece of machinery.

    Man, the things that guy has done for the world of cycling. Hell, even if the only thing he ever did was put cartridge bearings in a hub, it'd still be more than most. RIP.

    RIP. I'll put his hubs to good use the coming weekend, just to honour him.

    Mr. Wood pretty much invented the bicycle aftermarket industry. God bless him.

    I still have a Phil Wood bottom bracket I purchased in 1975 for my Gitane Tour De France that works as well as the day I installed it.

    Farwell to a true inovator.
