    Phil Wood hubs - cosmetic durability

    Do those lovely polished Phil Wood KISS Off hubs continue to look jubbly after a dose of wintertime road grit has been thrown at them? I.E do they corrode / tarnish easily??

    Polish them with quality car wax before building them.

    Most bare polished metals will tarnish over time. +1 on the wax.

    I want to climb them.
