    Source for rubber strips for chain stay-seat stay protectors.

    I know Fishboy has these as options with his kit but I cheaped out when I ordered mine and just got the standard protective film kit.
    Does anyone have a source in the US for a high density rubber with adhesive backing? I'd like to run this under the lizard skin protector to quiet the chain slap and on the underside of the right seat stay.

    Save time.... just page fishboy...
    He makes a great kit that covers all the important bits. He also has the high density rubber strips you seek (but at an additional charge).
    In addition to all this he makes bits for your fork and crank arms too..

    Yeah... as I said in my post. I already have a Fishboy kit. I'm looking for a US source for the rubber strips.

    I use double sided tape from the hardware store and stick patches of rubber cut out to match the lines of the Mojo from inner tubes along the top and inside of the chain stay and bottom and inside of the seat stay. On my clear CF Mojo it's not visibly noticeable and totally quiets the chain slap on the stays.

    Hey Yerma. I source my rubber strips from a rubber supplies specialist... the guys that do foam, rubber mats, seals for windows and the like. Just trawl through a store like that and you will find something pretty much perfect for the job. It most likely will not have an adhesive backing, so you'll need to suss that part of it yourself. Finding something that sticks well to both the rubber and the frame will be the challenge (especially if you don't want a nasty sticky residue should you need to remove it). Cheers - Fish.

    "...my rubber strips from a rubber supplies specialist..." you mean condom companies?

    Just get the Ibis Lizardskins protector. Looks nice and protects most of the drive side of the chainstays. The protector fits pretty tight so I don't think you'd get very much under it for extra noise suppression. I think the lizard does a decent job. Still make sure you tape back by the derailleur cause I am always banging into rocks there.

    Derby keeps his bike way to clean, oh wait I do that to. I bit of Pledge cleans and makes the frame sparkle. I only wash when it's real dirty else the Pledge method. Also it's the way to get a Ti frame to look good.
