    M3 Vinyl?

    Hi,
    Just got my Mojo SL frame yesterday and I can't wait to build it out! I have followed this forum for about a year now while debating which new ride to buy. I have noticed in a lot of the Mojo pictures a clear vinyl is used to prevent cable rub and rock dings. I believe it is called M3 vinyl but I don't know if that is an industry term or just slang. My Mojo came with clear vinyl dots but most of the pictures I see have much bigger pieces. Any help on finding this stuff would be appreciated.
    Thanks!

    This thread from last summer shows all the various tapes that people have used to protect the frame.

    You should call Ibis or search for threads about protecting the SL because the tapes people are using (leading edge tape, helicopter tape) which is basically a polyurethane tape, DOES NOT stick to the rubberized paint. Ibis was testing a new tape from 3M.

    Bonk is the same stuff...won't stick to the rubber paint...er, actually, what Ibis said was that it doesn't work as well.

    I haven't seen any threads from people who own the SL who have found a tape that works.

    Ok, then you have the SL build, not the SL frame? The OP says he has the SL frame which has the rubberized paint. And from what I have read on these forums (Hans posted something about the tape), the "normal " stuff doesn't work.
