    Good way to protect bike?

    3M Paint Defender Spray Film with synthetic wax - Sprayable Paint Protection Film, 90000 - 3M Auto
    Many cars have clear films in certain places to give some protection from rock chips and such. Could this product be applied to bike on down tubes and such? For added protection or instead of a fender. I bet this would work especially well on bikes with internal cable routing.

    An interesting possibility. I saw another thread about using Plastidip to coat the frame and protect paint from chips and such, but no-one said how well it held up. Since Plastidip can be peeled off, it seemed like a great way to mask an overpriced commuter.

    Has anyone tried the spray wax or rubber paint options out there? Was it worth the effort?

    I dipped my wheel on my old bike. It held up alright in the conditions, but I would imagine that the underside of a down tube is going to take a beating from rocks and debris unless you run a front fender. Now, I have the same stuff on my car, small pieces like the grille and vents and the such, and it survives an absolute beating here in Michigan from the sun and heat to extreme cold and salt.
    The pedals turn, not just the left one, but the right one too.
