    Mach 429 alloy down tube protection

    Does anyone have suggestions on what to use for a down tube/bb protector? The frames paint doesn't hold stickers very well.

    I was hoping to find a molded poly or carbon shield that mounts to the down tubes cage mount like you find with trek bikes.

    I've never even thought about it. My anodized frame has taken lots of rock hits (up to grapefruit size, even) with very little scratching.

    Yea I'm sure the frame is solid. Just like the added protection. Guess its from the carbon frame years.

    I sent a message to rockguardz a d they said that within the next few months they will be covering pivot cycles.

    There's probably someone out there (but I do not know who) that makes a bolt on (it would attach using the underside bottle cage bolts) CF cover like what we see being used on CF frames. Try eBay?
