So today, with a few spare minutes at college, I decided to make some frame protectors for this bad boy...

Downtube...

And chainstay

And what's better is that they all fit nice

Ooo very nice. Tempted to do something like that for mine.

Especially the chainstay. Have you made it to wrap around or just be stuck in place?

Pictures offered up/fitted appreciated :D

All of them are only 2ply laminate, keeping them light and manipulable. Designed to fit on, rather than round, just to preserve the frame in high-wear areas..

The chainstay ones will be mounted over heli tape, then an inner tube wrap round just to be sure..

Down tube ones have been designed to be removable after a claggy, muddy ride..
