    Building up a phil wood hub

    I'm working on building up a new single fixed Phil Wood track hub. I took down all of my measurements today and I have been getting unequal hub flange to center measurements: 45mm and 28mm. I can tell by looking at it that the flanges are by no means centered on the axle but I wanted to know if there is any one out there that can maybe help confirm these measurements. It is a 120mm single fixed phil wood track hub.

    if these measurements are correct that would lead to each flange having a different length spoke, right?

    Thanks,

    Are you measuring from the axle end to the flange or the locknut face to the flange? The latter is the important measurement.

    Let us know with updates...I for one hope to build up a Phil track hub soon and would like to know the ins and outs.

    Soil,

    thanks for the chart. It looks like my hand measurements were a little off. I would trust them to have it down correctly.

    Fly,

    I'll try to update this when the wheel gets built. I have to order spokes this weekend so the build will most likely take place the end of next week.

    thanks for the help.
