I have recently taken delivery of my new salpel and i'm loving it!
I also own a 2007 caffeine but i'm really enjoying my first venture into a dual suspension xc bike. The handling at speed has really taken me by surprise.

I am noticing a fair bit of noise from chainlap though. I am after some advice on any sexy looking chainstay protectors out there that will work well on both the noise and the aesthetics. (it is my pride and joy after all!)

I just have the clear plastic vinyl that shipped w/ my 06 Scalpel (older design). It has held up amazingly. There is no sign of it having worn through.

i pulled a neoprene chainstay protector off of an f-series bike for my 06 scalpel. i paid $20 for it which seems expensive but it's been the best $20 i've spent on the bike. you just need to pull real hard to get it to fit as the stays are wide ins some parts.

I took DG's advice and purchased the standard size lizard skin (smallest available) and it fits perfectly on my 2008 Scalpel. For $10 you can't go wrong.
