Cruising through all of the bike forums and other Instructables
I have found some good ideas on how to make a DIY chainstay protector but most of them involve using an old tire tube, tape, or some wire which in my opinion really does not look that great.
I decided to tear off the messy looking tape and use a few packets of Sugru
. It is tough enough to handle the abuse, water proof, easy on my chain, easily color matched when mixed or right out of the pack. I will use a thick layer of the blue then a layer of black over that. The Sugru has also reduced much of the noise when the chain hits it compared to anything else I have used.
So, out comes the Sugru
for my Brodie Evolution
mountain bike. - A Vancouver
built bike that I am proud to own. I have wanted one of these since I was a kid but only recently have been able to get one of these beauties. - An older model, but I still love it!
