    Lizard Skin

    Just bought a Jumbo Lizard skin for my Rockhopper and it doesnt fit.

    At my LBS they said its the bigggest size they have.

    I had to fight to put it on the bike and even there,its not covering the whole surface.

    Anyone knows a product that fits?

    road bike handle bar tape or an old tube wrapped looks good and works better

    This could be a stupid question, but are they clamp on grips? If so, make sure the little bolts are loose. Post some pics of it not covering too

    I think he is talking about the lizard skin that keeps the chain from slapping the chainstay.

    Ahh, yes. Those are way too big, haha. I must have been confused when I read 'road bike handle bar' in biggoofy1's response!

    I vote for the old tube method as well. I think it looks cool and works great. I actually wrapped the chainstay and seatstay of my bike.

    I swear by this stuff. Sticks to itself. Just wrap your chainstay and forget about it.

    Nope. Only sticks to itself. Comes off clean.
