Quick Tip #13 – How to Save The Paintwork On Your Precious Mountain Bike

Hey guys Rod from Sports Adventure with another quick tip.

And todays quick tip is on chainstay protectors and something you might not think too much about when you’re riding particularly in rough terrain the chain (and depending on what gear you are in) the chain can move and slap around a little bit on the chain stay.

And as you can see in this image here this is quite an old bike without a protector and the chain has certainly knocked the paintwork and the frame around quite a bit.

So are a protector that I’ve got is a neoprene material fits around chainstay keeps it protected.

Is easy to remove to clean and keeps your bike looking great.

Thanks guys.

So keep in touch and get out on the trails.
