    Performance upgrade.
    Your bike just became lighter.


    Mine started peeling off on day one.
    I gave it a few wraps of Gorilla tape to hold it on.

    Always an upside ;-)

    Too late to tape it on - it's lost in the mud of the Peak District somewhere.

    So are most N3 riders losing this bit of frame protection somewhat quickly?

    I replaced it with mastic tape as soon as I got the frame.

    if you ask who else lost this rubber you will get 100% answers in this direction ("universal fail").

    for the statistics : haven't lost mine and my girlfriend hasn't lost hers

    I have logged a fair amount of miles and have not had one chain drop and or need for a protector in that location. Chalk it up to unnecessary weight lost. Goo gone remover and looks as if it was never meant to be there.
