Advantages of Spoke Guards
Disadvantages of Spoke Guards
- No way! These are my favorite wheelchair components so it's difficult to think of the down side. But, for those who insist that every coin has a flip side, here it goes.
- If you're cruising around in a strong (very strong) crosswind the guards may not allow wind to pass through the spokes. This results in a sail effect which may blow you off your original or intended course. Sounds good doesn't it?
