some hub guards will protect the spokes where you would hit them when grinding.

for example the G-SPOrT G.L.A.N.D. 2 (sold at empirebmx.com) is a nice big hubguard (and no its not heavy) and it protects the spokes all around the hub...ive got 2 of them and they are real nice.

but I don't udnerstand how it protects the hub. What can go wrong with a hub mostly, bending? How can that guard protect it from bending?

ok, it goes like this, if you run pegs, they are pretty close to the hub right? so sometimes when you grind on your pegs, you mess up, it will happen sooner or later, and if this happens sometimes you hub gets bashed resulting in bendage, this sucks, a hub guard prevents this....by guarding...it....

hmm well I still doubt about the working of the thing, I still think it is pretty useless (IE if you go that wrong you bend your hub, a hub guard won't save it). but that is not experience-based :)

the hub guard will save your hub...mostly its for the flanges so they don't bend like hell when you keep bashing them by missed grinds.
