Try marine chandlers like sailboats.co.uk - it's called self-amalgamating tape and is commonly used on rigging.

it says "Chemically bonds to itself." if I wanted to just apply a strip, to say the underside of a chainstay, will it still stay in place?
sorry if these are dullard questions, I've never used this stuff :oops:

If its the stuff I have used before, it would have to be wrapped for it to bond to itself, so a strip would not work

Exactly, you wrap it round and it forms a protective tube but not stuck to the frame. It's like heat shrink in that respect.

£24 for 2 strips of sticky tape! :shock: :shock: :shock:

zip-tie an old innertube to your stay or if you are fussy about looks cut it to shape and evo-stick it. If it is a carbon frame check which glues you can use first.

I am fussy about looks, you dont get clear innertubes!

Did you see the light bulb test though?
Its not just sticky tape.

here you go fella.
that is if your talking about the tape that sticks to itself but not the object. it does have to be wrapped though, no avoiding that.

I picked up a roll in B&Q. They have it labelled as silicone tape. Useful for wrapping around cables and hoses where they touch the frame :wink:
