Spokes rubbing on hubguard. Awesome.

Its a bitch.(back wheel) Im probably gonna take it off and see if i can file down the part that rubs at a certain spot while the wheel is spinning.

Have you guys had a problem with this before? And how did you solve this problem? As a temporary fix i just spin the wheel really fast so it kinda wears down the spokes. Not good, i know.

Just even out the hub guard's shape and if that doesn't fix it, grind off a few millimeters of the edge. A hammer, vice, hacksaw, and adjustable wrench should be all you need.

Fbm guard to primo mix hub. Its rubbing cause of the edge of the guard being smashed.

Its mainly my fault for not rotating the guard too often.
I dont really have anything to grind it down with i dont think. Sand paper? Or would that take awhile?

your whell is most likely not centered,...if your hub guard is on the right the loosen your right spokes a quarter turn and tighten the left side a quarter turn all the way around,remember to start at the valve hole and finish at the valve hole.if the wheel is fully centered then just find a way to file the guard down lol.

I put a space between the inside of the hub guard and my hub. It spaced it out enough to clear the spokes for me. (Shadow hubguard, and i have done this on 2 different hubs, worked both times)

edit- i meant "spacer," not "space"

Lol never thought of that.

Why don't you just take off all the spokes. Who needs em anyway?

 
Just for the record, when I got my BTM... It wasn't "Trendy"
