Pros: Good hub guard for the front. I have done a lot of tooth picks and this shows not much wear at all.
Very strong and doesn't get caught up on ledges (so far)
Don't have to rotate this guard after every couple of rides since it rotates with the wheel.
Merrits video of them trying to angle grind this guard persuaded me to get this, and im happy with it.
Cons: It does rub against my forks so the wheel spins a bit slower but my forks are narrower than most current forks.
The metal wire included didn't work for me, it got all messed up and was very annoying to put on my bike (the guard still wasn't attached properly after) so i put zip ties on, now it's stronger and more stable than ever! (100 percent use zip ties!)

"Fits all front hubs..." Aye, if you've got an hour to sit n whittle it down a bit. It was a GSport Marmiset I had difficulty fitting it to. The prongs wouldn't fit between my spokes (wheel is normal 36hole, 3cross) and it was as if the flange was too large a diameter. Still isn't perfect but it's on there. How long it lasts is another question. Really like the tension ring system. Much more solid than zip ties etc.
Tldr, probably will fit your hub of its got thin/low flanges. Retention system great. Worth the money.

It's big enough to protect the spokes as well as just the hub, and £9 stops you replacing spokes every other ride. no complaints, I'm getting a second one for the other side.

Elliot from United Kingdom asks
with this hub guard, is it sold in a pair for both sides of my front wheel or would I have to buy 2? any help would be good.
