Getting a carbon frame presents some challenges, one of which is how to protect the downtube from bashing. Branded frames often come with bash guards installed but the Chiner frames do not.
One option that I'm going to try is All Mountain's stick on guards:
I placed the order but until that comes in I'm going to slap some black duct tape on the downtube, ghetto style.
I definately need those. When riding over small pebbles i can here them blasting the frame. So far no serious nicks...........but we know in time
Just saw this.If you look up West System Epoxy they have kits where you can make you own bash guards.
