    This is what I use, great product. If you take your time cutting out your pieces, you can cover most of the bike. It also allows for a wet application, and stretches nicely, so you can do a lot of curving with it.

    Probably going to be more costly, but check out Frameskin.com. They make custom cut outs for specific frames.

    3M mastic tape for chain slap.

    ICS Racers Tape (heli tape) for everything else. I sell my frames of every year, so taping them up keeps them in almost new condition. I spent four hours or so sizing and cutting tape for my last frame.
