I just bought a couple Thule Insta-gators and really like them except that I'm getting some paint rubbed off my DH fork where it makes contact with the release/handle mechanism (the part that slides up and down the notched pole). I've now tied a cut tube on the inside of the mechanism to help prevent any further rubbing. Has anyone experienced this? If so, what have you done? (There are some creative people on here so I've figured someone must have come up with a better solution.)
