Phil Wood, White Industries Trials Freewheel
I am taking a minute to explain to my many followers on this blog (wink/wink, and some laughing, and then some crying). In case there is someone out there interested in reviews of battle tested singlespeed gear, here goes: Phil Wood rear hub, 3 and half years, twice a week, lot's of mud, no problem, like new. It's not the lightest thing in the world, but it's dealt with a lot of wet sloppy weather and it's going strong. White Industries Trials Freewheel: easily my favorite singlespeed part. Instant engagement. That is really great in singlespeeding because you are always dependent on every inch of your pedal stroke. I am a month short of 3 years with this. No problems what so ever. Silky smooth in the sloppiest glop. Micro back-pedals, readjustments, instant on, trial precision on logs or whatever.
