    Stick on Rubber for HD Bottom Bracket?

    Anyone recommend a good stick on rubberized tape for the BB on an HD?

    The plastic frame protector doesn't quite wrap around. I've had a few good hits down there and it's looking a little rough.

    I owned a carbon nomad before I switched to the HD. I really liked the down tube protector on the carbon nomad. It's a dense foam/rubber with a carbon weave over it. You can buy it from santa cruz and cut it to shape and stick it on. I've bought some and used it to protect other bikes. You should be able to make 2-3 bottom bracket protectors out of 1 piece. It's just one option, theres probably cheaper stuff you could also use.

    I think they are both good bikes, just different suspension feel. For me the HD is a more versitle bike since you can run it @140mm, 160mm and even 650b wheels. Im happy with the switch.

    Carbon leather protectors from Lizard Skins work great.

    Plasti Dip will do the trick
    There's a feeling I get
    When I look to the West
    And my spirit is crying for leaving
