    New frame protection

    Looking for advice on the best type of frame protection for my new bike when it arrives. I see some manufacturers have specific kits but can't see anything for Intense. Would like to keep it looking sharp for as long as possible from chainslap and rocks hitting the down tube while retaining the street rod looks.

    Any help appreciated. Cheers.

    I have a lizard skins downtube patch that i got on Jenson USA Lizard Skins Carbon Downtube Adhesive > Accessories > Bicycle Protection > Frame Patches | Jenson USA Online Bike Shop. It's thick and takes a beating, but still looks great too.

    Frameskin

    They don't have a specific Intense sets but their generic mountain bike set is pretty good. I used on my previous 3 bikes with great results.

    You can also go to a Car window tinting place and ask for CLearBra tape. 3M makes it in different thickness'. It comes in sheets. Its much like the Frameskin but you have to cut it to fit yourself. Ive done all of my bikes for the last few years and it works great. Cost is less than half of the Frameskin price.

    +1 on the clearbra. I made a template for the front triangle surrounding the lower link and bb for the carbine I can share. I was cheap and got 3.5" width clearbra off ebay which is exactly the size of the bb at it's widest point. Print the template, tape to the clearbra roll, exacto the tracing, came out perfect. If i'm bored, I'll make templates for other parts.

    I'm a big fan of the soft side of Velcro. It's cheap and easy to work with.

    This is the best stuff EVER, but you can find it for better prices than that. You can call Lizard Skins and ask to buy a large sheet. I use it on down tubes, bottom brackets, and chain stays on all my bikes and it holds up well to the rocky desert here in AZ.

    Hi guys
    I am in discussions with the Australian importer for Intense bikes and will have a solution shortly. The Intense Hard Eddy kit I created recently looks pretty good - matte on matte is the bomb.

    I'd love a copy of the Carbine template you made!! Can you send it to me? I just picked up a 2012 carbine (size medium) in new condition and Id like to keep it that way! Message me and I'll happily send you my email address.
