    New question here. Chainstay Replacement

    Hi everyone; I'm trying to get a Chainstay to replace the very damaged one on my bike, I have a 2008 FSR Stumpjumper (Attached Photo), the stock Chainstay is smaller on one side and bigger on the other. My question is does anyone have tried to put a LizardSkins Chainstay on he bike? Does it fit? Or do I have to look for the exact same one?.
    Thank you.
    Eduardo.

    Your wording is confusing. A chainstay is a structural component of your bicycle frame.

    Companies like Lizard Skins make products to protect your drive side chainstay from chainslap.
    When under pressure, your level of performance will sink to your level of preparation.

    Good job!

    Hi rkj__; sorry if my wording is confusing, basically what I want is to replace the protector:

    And I want to know what size, if any; fits the bike.
    Thank you.

    Lizard Skins Jumbo. The super Jumbo is for large swing arms and the standard fits hardtail frames. I run a Jumbo on my SL and it fits just fine.

    We the people ...

    Hi 00sable; yes the stock tires were really bad, specially in wet terrain, in that photo I had Nevegals on the bike, now I have ExCavators... both are solid on every terrain!

    Try wrapping race bike bar tape round your chain-stay its cheaper and the gel type is long lasting
