    Spider Comp Cable Rub Warning

    Picked up a Spider 29 Comp this spring - best bike I have ever ridden.
    Can't believe how well it goes both up and down.

    Warning to those who have one - make sure you have frame protection where the front der cable goes through the linkage. After about 5 rides, i have worn right through the top coat on the seat tube, and there is now a small grove.

    Also if anyone has any suggestions on how to fill the small grove please let me know (would love to hear from Intense on this as well)

    Yea, mine is digging in to the frame right through the clear patch. Hmmm. Maybe a 1x setup will be a necessity.

    Mine was wearing a way a bit too. No big deal at all. Just slapped one of my circular frame saving patches on it and I'm good to go. Not an issue, just didn't have the foresight to put a patch there. I patched all the other places my cables might rub my frame.

    I am sure you are fine in rubbing through the clear coat. Just cover it up with a frame dot (aka helicopter tape), and you'll be just fine.

    Spider Comp Cable Rub Warning

    Regarding plugs at first I used a dot of 8mm protection tape to cover internal cable routes. Then remembered I have some of these left over from my RM altitude. Not a perfect fit but good enough. Also the altitude came with jagwire tube tops designed to protect a frame from cable rub but dont know how effective it is for rubb. Try a LBS.Spider Comp Cable Rub Warning-imageuploadedbytapatalk1374844387.191564.jpg
