    Rare Phil Wood Hub Questions

    I just found this on ebay. PHIL WOOD 70's Disc Brake Front Hub """VERY RARE""" 48H. Has anyone ever seen one of these?

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...STRK:MESELX:IT

    I posted this in a couple of fourms in hopes of getting some knowledge about the hub.

    How rare is it? Could it be used for a possible SS aplication? Are they worth anything?

    Are there many 48 hole rims that are available, other than the 700C Sun Rhyno Lite and the Velocity Dyad?

    I don't know...

    I don't know but you're in luck. By some odd set of circumstances, you're from Boise and the hub ships from Boise. Another stange fact is that the eBay seller and you share a similar user name. mtbmac and mac67. I'd almost bet you could contact mac67, identify yourself as a Boise resident also named Mac and you two could strike up a friendship. I bet Mac67 could answer your questions, since he put the rare hub up for auction.

    On a completely unrelated note, there is a classifieds section on this forum where you can purchase (for a very little amount) an adverstisement. Just in case you (mtbmac) were to ever want to sell any items. You may want to mention this to mac67 if you make contact with him.

    this seems to indicate that it is useless: The friction disc was made from an asbestos material. Since the use of asbestos is no longer available the discs are no longer available. A suitable replacement materials had been found, and along with the high cost to manufacture it has since been discontinued." nice paperweight.

    Obscure, outdated, and obsolete tandem hub.

    When you find the one guy in the world who could actually use that hub, be glad if you can get $20 for it. Vintage & rare is $$$. Vintage & extremely limited use & appeal, not so much...
