Buddy of mine has been trying to come up with ideas lately. I dont have a machine shop at my disposal, but I do have a garage full of tools and materials. Any ideas? Weight doesnt matter, ive been considering disc golf discs, tennis balls, any thick plyable plastic.

Like 2-3" pvc caps and drilled holes in the center? Interesting... if thats not what you meant then please elaborate, but pvc would also possible work.

Something similar to the pic I included but its about the size of a front hubguard and the hole is smaller. I just bore the hole to the size of the cone nut for a nice fit and it holds up quite well. I'd inc;ude exact item I use but idk the name of it. It's like 1.50 each tho.

I have used all sorts of stuff. There were these things that went around light bulb things that worked really well on this old abandoned house. Idk if i have pics but they were awesome and made of something that still slid well.

I've heard of people using the piece of a door knob that rests against the door.

Someone on here awhile back posted a pic of theirs and then just used zip ties through the screw holes to attach it to their spokes

I can't imagine it would be that strong though

I made a rear hub guard out of stainless steel, Used a large hole saw to cut a disc out of the sheet then drilled a hole dead center put it in a press to bend it into a "cone" type shape (had to heat it, stuff is hard as eff). Works awesome, barely a scratch yet. I made a few plastic/pvc ones in the past and they friggin explode within a couple grinds. My store bought aluminum one on the front is pretty eff'd already too after a season of riding, gotta engineer a stainless one for the front soon.

I feel like that's a terrible idea because it would just hang up on grinds, same with tennis balls haha.

what's wrong with spending 11$ on a damn hub guard? If you can't afford that, just learn to grind cleaner

Not an issue of money. Id rather create something of my own that lasts 3 months, over buying something for $30 and having it last 2 years.

I want to create a hubguard out of something that I find at home... dont try to change my mind about it, im doing it.

THIS. Making and running your own custom made parts is one of the best feelings. Maybe mine arent the 'at home diy' style custom, but the feeling is the same!
