Jeff Caswell's Phil Wood Hubs

Jeff Caswell showed the latest narrow hub he has found to try out on the upcoming Super Microbike. It is a one-speed BMX rear hub from that is only about 95 mm across the round head Allen bolts that hold it on the bike. He says Phil has three levels of bearings he can provide, and Jeff went for the middle level that has less seal drag than the standard bearings.

I'm pretty sure this is just the road shell with a shorter axle for BMX. The Phil guys will do just about anything custom, and there is another 15mm or so to be taken out of the axle. Mark S.
