Not really, if you're hitting your drop outs and the flanges of your hubs then its probably gonna cost you in the future and reduce the life of your hubs spokes and or drop outs. If you don't have problems with this then you have nothing to worry about. You can also create makeshift hubguards out of cds and things liket hat

if your grind clean and dont grind on you dropouts and hubs a hub guard is not necessary. it adds a little extra weight if your a weight freak to your bike. you dont have to buy a hub guard, but if you want you could

I dont use them...although my hubs dont come in contact with anything to much. Plus one of my bikes has HUGE drop outs, so big you cant even see the hub from a side view...whatever happen to big drop outs anyway.

you always want hub guards, because i just bent 2 spokes today and put a dent by my dropouts.. you always wanna hub guard because a 25 buck guard is alot cheaper than a 150 buck hub
