Hi
i have two questions
1. What could happen if I grind with pegs without any hubguards ?
and
2. I have one United Direct 2.30 tire and one Demolition Momentum 2.35 tire. Which one do you think its better to put in the front and which one in the back?
Thanks

1 you'll tear up your hub/spokes. Your hub will still last but not as long

2 direct up front for grip, momentum up front for looks.

I seek progression, not perfection.

well if you grind without a hub guard your going to eventually fuck up your hub/ flanges and spokes they'll last like said above but not as long

as for the tire I would probably just put the momentum in the front because they have a really thin side wall and they have a problem ripping from rubbing during grinds from what I've been told

I don't grind though so some one else can probably give you better advice

momentum in the garbage, get something else. momentums suck if you grind. i've gone through 3. you'll just bend your spokes(possibly break some) and scratch your hub from grinding

I'm on the vital legit list!

im pretty sure the momentum is bigger so it should go up front. grinding without hubguards will be fine for a little while its just gonna scrtch ur hub and spokes... depending on what you grind u should be fine til u can afford some hub guards.if your grinding like brick ledges then probably not but grinds on ramps and even rails will be fine for a while... atleast in my experience.

I wouldnt use either of those tires. Haha i mean i have a momentum but they are made of paper. haha there is the fact that if you intend on grinding a lot it will tear up hubs and spokes. I think they make grinding smoother. I cant icepick properly without a rear hubguard! it makes it easier for me. I dont have a front guard just yet, i am gonna get a Gsport gland guard just to smoothen out my toothpicks.

Mine are a year old with a bit of grinding, not a single issue yet.

Yeah i have a RHD hub and grind on the right as well so i am quite happy i haven't landed on it yet. going to pick up a hub guard though because i also might have that day where it all goes to shit.
So i'm thinking the primo DSG (metal one) for my mix off empire what do you guys think? will it last it i am to come down on it hard?

maybe but you want over all performance and if you have a bigger tire in the rear you will be out of control while doing fakies

1. You'll mostly likely damage your hubs and spokes.
2. Always put the bigger tire up front.

This. Especially if you're just learning to grind.

Just get hub guards. Ignore everyone saying "learn to grind on your pegs". If it were that easy why do pros bother using hubguards?
