So when I used to ride a long time ago we didn't have hub guards. So I don't know much about them. I did a search and most of the threads are a few years old and didn't really answer my questions.

1) I just need hub guards on the side i'm grinding on right?

2) Plastic or metal and why?

3) How long do hub guards last and what's the best brand?

As always thanks for your input.

1. yes
2.plastic if it's a gsport gland. any other get metal
3.they last years. best guard ever is the gsport gland. people complain it's ugly but it is by far the best hubguard ever

The gsport gland does seem to be the most popular on here. It looks like a simple design. I assume it's easy to install?

Hub guards last for ever. Get them for everywhere you have a peg. Metal is the way to go if its a hub specific guard. If you get a universal front guard, get the gland.

I seek progression, not perfection.

i agree with the gland, for rear, get a s&m cymbal or daily grind as they are chromo
they last really long, like years
yea, on the side you grind on, unless you are experienced and super smooth, and can afford new hubs all the time

1 Yes
2 i would say metal because its usually stronger unless we are talking about a gland or drive side Primo i use plastic because its usually thicker, slides nicer and if something chips outwards but doesn't snap or break you can always sand it back easily. and for what brand get a g sport or primo if you need a dsg, but remember to get the plastic primo

So can I just get 2 glands and call it a day or do I need a specific one for the back hub?

It really depends on what back hub you have, what hub do you run?

Any rear hubguard that is universal should work honestly. They slide over all the existing hardware and you don't have to worry about taking off cone nuts and all that. And as for the front, Gsport Glands are good but it's kinda like gambling. Your fork legs may be too close or your hub flange may be too wide and stuff and the guard will rub on the fork legs.
