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.

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"

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"
