    Rubberized seatstay protector on Mach 6 starting too peel off

    Any Mach 6 owners starting to have this problem. I have about 6 good rides on it and noticed the seatstay protector is starting to peel away from the frame. This one is small, hate to see the downtube one peel off. is there a fix for this? special glue etc....... thx

    Yep. Mines starting to peel off a bit. The down tube a bit also, but to a lesser degree. Not to the point where I feel it's going to fall off anytime soon, but I'd be surprised if it was still hanging on very well in a year.

    Use Seam Seal/Shoe Goo or some similar adhesive and stick it back on. Clean the area under the pulled up area first with some rubbing alcohol.
    Safe riding,

    Seam Seal is runny Shoe Goo.

    Its used to seal the seams on tents. Buy it at Walmart, REI, or any outdoors store. Comes in a small bottle with a brush built into the cap.

    Mine was showing signs of coming off right out of the box, seat and chain stays. I pressed them back onto the adhesive and expect it to become a problem down the line.

    Isn't this the same rubberized protector design used on the 575Cs and 429Cs? Maybe some owners of those could give a heads up as to if this is going to become a problem and, if so, what they did to mitigate it.

    Yes, it is the same stuff. I think they may have a manufacturing issue with the adhesive on the M6's because none of my friends M429's have this issue.
