    Hope SB95c Invisiframe kit

    I've just picked up my Medium SB95c from Lee and Vicky, who run Invisiframe, the UK company who create 3M 'Helitape' type fitting kits for loads of different bikes.

    They have done an incredible job in both covering my bike amazingly and now also being able to offer a medium SB95c Template for others to buy.

    I've used their kits on some of my other bikes and they are real easy to fit if you have clean hands and a little bit of patience. Best time to fit the kit is before you build the frame up, but it's perfectly possible to fit it afterwards, just a little bit more fiddly.

    I'm guessing they may not have the kit on their website for a few days yet, but I'm sure if you send them a mail, they will be able to supply one to you.

    Lee & Vicky - Thank you very much indeed. One highly delighted customer

    Will post some in a few hours but it will just look like a frame because it is covered so well.

    Medium only?

    A photo would be great, if only to confirm how invisible it is

    Sorry all. I'm a complete duffer and don't know how to get a photo on here. However, I've managed to get it onto another site and here's the URL

    Newer-Yeti Photo Album - Pinkbike

    Regarding size, Lee needs to get a frame of each particular size in order to make the template. If you are UK based and have a frame for him to do, drop him a mail and I'm sure he would do it.

    Is that gloss or matt? Looks gloss. I don't have my frame in front of me, so I can't tell which would look better.

    Its gloss and it matches the frame perfectly. I've just also bumped into one of the Silverfish chaps (UK Importer for Yeti) and he's super impressed with the quality of it.

    Nice one. I'm sending my XL off to Lee next week, once the headset is fitted. It's at the shop now. Waiting on Pikes (September, sigh), so there's no huge rush.

    Just noticed the SB95C is glossier than the SB66C, at least from the Yeti site. Much nicer.

    Ta.

    Hoping Lee has a large kit available to send out soon, I've been speaking to him since I ordered my Yeti way back when, he seems like a top guy and I've seen that his work is spot on too!

    Wow, this will be great to see these become more available. Recipher, I have a SB95a - XL. Please let me know how this turns out for you. I am interested in buying one of these kits.

    Anybody have an idea on costs?

    Thanks!

    Can't find a courier to send it yet. Very expensive to insure it to send.

    Anyone in the US get one of these kits? Wondering what the final cost was including shipping? About to order up my 95c and wanted to have this kit in hand so it can be applied before the build up.

    I have the matte kit on my SB66c for a year plus and I am absolutely impressed by the durability. These are very well made. They are expensive but its one thing you won't regret spending on

    proxy what was the cost shipped to US?

    Does the kit cover enough of the frame or did you order other pieces?

    Sorry, I cant help you with the shipping cost as I am not located in the US.
    As for the kit, you don't have to worry about the coverage. I can say that it's very complete.
