Hub Guards?

I recently threw a few pegs on my bike and I don't have hub guards at the moment, I was wondering if it will do any damage doing basic grinds like double pegs, feeble or smith grinds
I'm grinding on the drive side, all my bearings on hubs are sealed and i run a interlock v2 chain

There is the potential to fuck up your parts. There are good cheap guards. I ride GSPORT Glands and the Uniguard, which are all pretty cheap. The front gland tends to cause my bike to stick and wedge in rails, a problem I dont have with my front S&M Cymbal guard. But anyway yes get guards. A sprocket guard is an option too, the Shadow Disaster is a nice one that I ride.

Yea get guards. G-sport gland front is never a bad choice, and my friend just got the mission Universal rear guard and it works great for him on his non drive side, I reccomend a g-sport uniguard for drive side use.

Never had a problem with grinding without guards on the drive side been doing it for 15 years

A couple grinds/stalls isn't gonna hurt, but doing them over & over will. You can end up breaking spokes, damaging your hub, and especially your chain, driver & sprocket since you grind on your drive side. Getting guards will prevent that from happening. Not everyone can be so precise that they always grind on their pegs & pegs alone, so they're definitely a good investment. Plus grinds are much, much smoother & better. Get chromoly guards. I love my S&M Cymbal rear & Daily Grind fronts. Last forever too
