Cant find these anywhere. What bearings/center axle do they use?
Any crmo guards that work well on them?

I don't recommend that hub

Pros
Lasts long
Female axles

Cons
Spins like crap
over time internal axles rubs shell
Not compatible with daily grind guards

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.

Can't beat that deal, but in any other case i wouldn't worry about color so much more so on durability getting hubs painted is waste of money

from what i can gather from reviews:
PROs
good bearings
rolls well
damn good price, especially 25 bucks
og vital member 'carjakester' (11000 posts) says it spins great after 2 years
roqfan (as of 2012) said it holds up great with his 2 peg on front use
droogskull says he likes his
generally, the bad revews i saw come from the people who say 'this kid i know' about the hub

hub guards that fit:
jersey barrier, knight hub guard, daily grind front,

Cons:
people reccomend the marmoset over it, but for the price, it doesnt make sense
heard like 2 people say they snapped the axle bolts, but you can just replace off the bat if that is a huge concern

You sure? The DG comes with a different sized spacers, doesn't it? To make it universal to most hubs. Or does the Vandero2 not use a 15mm axle?

just stick with alumunim guards, or plastic aluminum combos, or i could always CAD a vandero 2 specific guard and then you could take the design to a machine shop and cnc a few copies out of chromo
id prolly do it for free, as it takes me like 30 minutes max and its easy as fuck
email me if intersted steven.m.olive@gmail.com

actually boring the axle diameter of the guard would be your best option
id recommend using a metal lathe and a boring bar, or a drill attachement to a lathe, a metal mill, or a nice drill press
DO NOT CHEAP OUT AND USE A NORMAL DRILL!
you are unlikely to drill it straight, or centered for that matter
