Thanks. Was it hard to apply?i got some of this stuff recently...
ISC Helicopter-OG Surface Guard Tape (8 mil Outdoor Grade): 1 in. x 30 ft. (Transparent)
it's expensive (but so is my frame )... it also seems to go on pretty clear... seems to hold OK so far, but i have not used it for more than a month or so...
just google it...
Looks good, thanks!If you have some time and patience on your hands you can try going to a tint shop that also specializes in car bras (paint protection film). I was able to go to my local car shop and pick up a 3' x 5' solargard film and just used a razor and xacto knife to cut it to my specs.
My Niner and Intense frames are 98% covered as well as my forks. Older models of Niner tends to paint chip eaiser. This way it looks new and better resale value.
This shows my Niner all covered up, can barely see it unless you are up close to it.

And in the right angle you can see the film, or overlap in my case. I double up for the downtube and chainstay.

of the 4-5 cars places I've been to, they recommend Solargard since the 3M tend to fade and/or yellow... but I assume from extended periods out in the sun, we don't have to worry about that so you should be fine with either.
Not as yet, but i'm in discussions with the local shop who carries them to complete the range as best as practical... including alloy models. They also carry Rocky Mountain and a few other brands, so I expect to be busy for a few weeks just with them and private orders. Flick me a message as a reminder as it is easy to get bogged down or pulled across to more urgent models.Looks awesome, do you have a version for a 5.7 aluminum?
I bought one of theese about a year ago and it is still holding up very well i havent had a single problemI am buying a new 2012 Pivot 5.7 in white.
Can anyone recommend a good, clear tape to protect the frame and fork? I am looking for something that goes on very clear.
