    Carbon fiber seat stay

    Anybody in Titus land have problems with chain slap on the drive side CF seat stay? Has the contour been enough to avoid it? Anybody slap some protection on that area?

    Thanks from a very soon to be RX Ti lover.

    durability

    not sure if it was from chainslap or not, but have definitely chipped the clearcoat over the carbon in a few places...best bet seems to be motorcycle anti skuff tape - clear, durable, cheap. Plus, if you do it from the moment you have the frame it will be like a second skin and keep it looking pristine...
    i've got one inch, who needs more?

    You wrote chain stays in your post and seat stays in your title. While the seat stays are CF the chain stays are aluminum. I've not had any issues with the CF seat stay or the chain stay (I have had the clear coat on the aluminum at the top of the seat stay all flake off).

    Yes, I noticed that. I just touched it up with clearcoat and covered it with tape. It works well

    I have some clear coat flaking as well. My bad for not taping it off sooner but I'm not too worried.
