That's kind of where I land on this too. Neat if all you want is to look cool. I wouldn't put a lot of faith in its protective qualities. Still probably better than going helmetless.

Bent beyond functioning or broken gets replaced. Scratches and dents are character. If you ride off the pavement, you'll get as much or more eventually anyway.

The metal shield will not keep the bearing sealed well enough for use as a wheel bearing. It is a dust shield only and will not stop moisture from getting into the bearing. You need the 6204-2RS.
