Doesn't have an allen slot? Thats kinda dumb... Oil up the threads a bunch and use a piece of rubber (mouse mat or something?) and try to get it off. If that fails, cut a slit in it somewhere and use a flathead and a hammer to unthread it.

Same thing happened to my Cult front guard. It WAS a press on guard, but riding it on a threaded axle hub for awhile somehow dug perfect threads into it.

Don't bother trying to pound it off with a hammer or something, I tried the same thing & got nowhere. Just for the fuck of it, I tried unscrewing it but the only thing big enough I had was a monkey wrench and what do you know, it budges and unscrewed. so try unscrewing it.

Stick an 8mm Allen wrench in the axle for leverage. That's what it's there for.

Ive dealt with this on Profile hubs before. Use something long enough to stick it through the spokes from the other side like a screwdriver. stick it in the rear back somewhere on the guard and hit then end with a hammer. Do this in a circular motion around the hub, it'll loosen the guard evenly and pop off

Thread on should have an allen slot or wrench flats.

So it's a safe bet to try smashing it off? It's my friend hub and he got it from someone else that didn't take care of it.m

Use a file/saw to make a groove in it and try unthreading.with a flathead and hammer. If it just spins and doesn't loosen, then yes, have at it. It may be threaded now like sunday's guard was.

I wouldn't believe its pressfit though, since im pretty sure profile axles are 14mm throughout, so the hub wouldn't spin when tightened down. It may be a universal guard stuck to the bearing hardware.

Testimony and apologies





I want everyone to know that Jesus Christ died on the cross for all of your sins, he went to hell for three days and defeated death and rose from the grave on the 3rd day.

What would Jesus say: I didn't die for you to live like this!

I just got it off. It was press on and it takes the place of the cone nut thing. It does have a few threads on it now tho haha. Thanks guys.
