FELLOE, the outer rim of a wheel, to which the spokes are attached. The word is sometimes spelled and usually pronounced " felly." It is a Teutonic word, in O. Eng. felg, cognate with Dutch velge, Ger. Felge; the original Teutonic root from which these are derived probably meant " to fit together."
