    Stumpjumper 29er 2017/8 owners - additional chainstay protection?

    Hi,
    just got a new Stumpy 2017 29er. It comes with a plastic chainstay protector but doesn't look like it covers the bottom of the stay. The chain looks like it's far enough, and it has the SRAM type-2 clutch.
    I'm wondering if I should add chainstay protection (like wrapping an inner tube) or no need? I prefer not to add but don't want to discover chain marks on the stays after a month of riding...
    Thanks!

    do not worry the chain-stay protector that is on the bike is sufficient if you are still worried get some 3m helicopter tape and put it on the bottom of the chain stay.

    If you bought the bike new...it should come with a bunch of clear stick on frame protectors. You can just slap those on the parts of the frame where you think it'll get knicked up. I haven't noticed any chips along the bottom of the chainstay that looked like it came from chain slap.

    Thanks! I'll just keep it that way then.
    (seems like they beefed up the chainstay protector in the new Stumpy that just came out...)
