HOW TO install a hub guard on your p-fix

Posted in HOW TO's with tags , , , , , , , , on 01/13/2012 by FGFSNYC

This is the first installment of the HOW TO section of this blog, i plan to show all my readers how to install or modify anything they request or i find is needed.

First up is!
HOW TO INSTALL A HUB GUARD on your NEW P-FIX!

What you’ll need:
– a hacksaw with many blade replacements
– a vice grip or anything to hold down a bolt
– a p-fix rear hub
– a fbm 14mm hub guard (this tutorial is made for this hubguard)
– tools to remove and install your wheel and cone nuts

STEP 1
remove the cone from the non-driveside (you’re going to cut it down to the correct size)
and place it on your vice-grip or a surface were you can go to work on.
STEP 2
cut it right before the bolt shape ends.
