Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

my first phil

Happened to score a sick deal on a front Phil hub, so I figured what the hell and picked it up... from appearance alone, I can see what all the fuss is about. Ye gods, this thing is BEEFY.

nice pics....

although I prob didn't 'score a sick deal' like you, I just ordered my first phil on Thursday(rear). It should be here in a week and a half or so (they didn't have 36 hole in stock, so the LBS had to order it first)

getting excited looking at these 'beefy' pics...can't wait to lace that **** up (although I'll prob enjoy just spinning it in my hands for a good while during work breaks..haha)

I feel as though you should be distributing cigars..

Packaging reads: "It's a Phil!"
