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!

Step 1: Remove Old Tape and Clean
Step 2: Prepare Your Sugru
Step 3: Apply the Sugru to the Bike
Note: If you do end up making a few holes in the Sugru during the stretching process, it is easily fixed by pushing the Sugru back into place filling the hole you just made. Sugru is very easy to work with and is very forgiving.
