Just picked up some nice XT m750 brakes to match the rest of the groupset. can't decide whether to chase after some same group cranks too. :roll:

Anyone advise on the best fitting chainslap protector for a 97 Zaskar? I keep buying them and they don't fit... :evil:

Thanks Pickle

Recommend this over getting a neoprene / wrap cover?

No worries :wink:

I do recommend it above wraps, as I dont like them at all especially when they get muddy and look all used and cheap.

These are nice and original. Yes, the paint may get a little scuffed/chipped if you suffer chainsuck, but its all character!

Another option if your interested is carbon look adhesive sheeting. I have a full roll of it, and if you want a bit I can send it to you for a few quid. You could wrap the whole chainstay in it. i used to use it for this and then make a few little patches to stop cable rub.

Thanks 8). Appreciate the feedback. I'd seen too many (and too lovely) ball burnished Zaskars, so I wanted something different. :wink:

Bought a couple. One for this, the other for my other GT. Will let you know when they arrive. 8)

A deft touch, long fingernails and some nail polish remover always works for me
