I'm riding a vandero 2 hub and I think I'm going to invest in some hubgaurds should I get the plastic barrier guards or the original alloy ones from odyssey. Photo

I have the Demolition Phantom front hub and guard for it and one thing I have noticed is once the finish came off it it started sticking to rails a bit more at my local park. A little more wax and I would be fine.

I ordered the guard for the Rotator coaster, think it will happen to me ? It's alloy too.

You don't have to replace plastic hubguards as often as plastic peg sleeves from my experience. Alloy guards tend to bend in very easy and then you have to file them down or something, where as plastic guards bend in and your spokes file them out themselves.
