Damn. I'm still riding my agua's which are almost as old as my montana. No signs of cracking yet.. Though I'm coincidentally throwing on a different set like tomorrow
I'm pretty surprised how well the fly stuff has held up for me. I've broken two sets of 4 pieces and cracked a rim or two in that same period.

Snapped my Fly Montana clean doing a flat 3. Must have been damaged from something else but just days ago I wiped it down and recall no cracks here. Trying to decide now between a Soundwave and Motoross.
Wow, must have been some weak weld for it to crack directly on it.

Which version? Pretty impressed with my v1 Montana. Mine's held up for almost 4 years to pegs and all until I just recently retired it.
Started to get tiny stress cracks around the seat stays (same area) but I'm sure its still got a little life in it
I've still seen a decent amount of broken ones though

Haha yeah I figured someone would bring that up. I'd still prefer the standard behind-the-drop guard but they look nice for what they are. Would like to see how they hold up once they're out

I found the chromo dsg like the S&M or daily grinds where a fair bit thinner than any of the alloy/plastic dsg's.
Yeah I kinda figured that might be my best option. The S&M is nice but kinda $$ and I always liked the Daily Grind's. Also cool to support a smaller company/Ryan Howard. Hmmm

For me, I took the locknut off the non-drive side of my hub and just put the guard on. The frame holds everything together so that locknut isn't really missed. I've been running my KHE ACB with no locknut for about 2 years.

Other option is to put your dropouts over the outside of a bench vice and slowly open the vice. This will widen the rear a bit. Do it in small amounts ie flex it out and then loosen again before flexing it out a bit further etc.
That is an option but I'm kinda sketched to stretch out a new frame. Also when I have to remove my wheel with flats etc, I'm assuming it'll still be kinda tough to remove. As for removing the locknut, that doesn't sound bad but I also already have a little play in my coaster :/

Try one of the new glands if they're out yet?
I prefer traditional-style guards, but those do look quite nice over the old ones. Or even the merrit ones dropping

Kink or S&M dsgs are thinner and better in pretty much every conceivable way. The Kink especially, as there is no mucking about with guard and chain akwardness, it just slides right in.
Ooh I forgot about the Kink one. Always thought they looked kinda thicker than S&M/DG, but I do like the ease of how it just slides in. Always hated trying to install/remove bent up alloy Primo ones

Thanks for the replies guys. Kind of feeling the Kink or the DG dsg now... Not sure which would be a better option

So I recently made the switch to Cult Deathrow v2?(dak green) and I'm running a Federal v2 hub. I ran dual hub guards (Animal PYN and Primo DSG) on my old fly frame with no issues whatsoever. But I can only run the non-drive guard on this frame, and its a decently tight squeeze already. So I've been on 2 or 3 pegs recently but miss my 4peggery haha

Anyone ride a similar setup with dual guards or know anyone who has? I bought a plastic Primo DSG hoping it would have a little more give over the alloy, but no go. Been riding the Animal guard since it came out so I'd prefer replacing my non-drive side. I was looking at the Federal and BSD guards that replace existing hardware (like my current Animal guard) hoping they'd be a bit slimmer?

I don't really dig the look of glands but i have some of those kicking around. Or even the looks of the new external DSG's coming out

I'm sure this isn't the first thread of its kind, but after hearing more issues with spec/tolerances I was wondering...

Thanks! Any advice or suggestions as to what could fit would be cool

I miss when companies didnt have every single component for a bike, and bike checks were much more interesting...
