One of the best in the business.

I think a better definition of Woody's Wheel Works would be:

What all other wheel builders ascribe to be half as good as.

Kudo to Woody

When the cross laced wheels for the R11GS first came out, Woody was one of the few guys that would touch them.... The dealer just laughed at me

See!!!

Colombian 625:

See, thats why Woody's is #1 in the world of wheel works, The MAN himself is in Germany, His shop is in Denver Colo,

USA, and HE takes the time to respond to your plight from half a world away.

Can't say enough good things about this Organization---Hands down--" THE BEST "

We may have some Hubs left over from the A-System wheels that we can provide you.
But you would then need to order in Spokes and Nipples if any of them are worn or old, Most importantly you may need new O-Rings. Then there is the issue of having someone who knows how to install the A-System wheel. You may do better ordering a New STS Tubeless wheel then to go through all this. The cost shipping and installation may be at or near the cost of a new set of just the rear wheel

Email us at jc@jcpakbikes.com for quotes and more info.

Thumb Cush Drive

+1 you HAVE to have a cush drive on your next hub.

manufacturers use cush drives for the rear hubs on bikes over 450cc (and pretty much all street bikes) and have for years. With the advent of powerful 250cc 4-stroke they are making their way onto smaller bikes as well.

If you pay for orange anodization (assuming, I've seen some blue-hubbed KTMs that look good) be aware the dye fades pretty fast- they all do. Some shops will re-dip a hub for you to allow the chemicals to penetrate deeper so you maintain color longer- but really anodization is best viewed as a surface hardener to prevent wear on soft metals (like aluminum alloys our hubs are made from) and not as a "colorant", which is how people tend to see it now that it's a(n affordable) way to dress your bike/bicycle up with the colors of your choice. See if you can get it re-dipped...
