what are those things called that protects your bar from getting hit by

the chains. I just looked at mines and my paint is ruined. It has all these knicks and i want to prevent that from happening again.


I also noticed that my rear wheel wobbles a little bit, what might cause the problem?

No, it seems that I need to add shims some where. The wheel is not bent, it wobbles from the middle piece.
