Protecting a carbon frame

by DuncanDare   May 29, 2014  

Yesterday I splashed out on a brand new Cannondale SuperSix EVO 6 105. This is the first time I've owned a carbon frame, and I'd like to avoid scratching it up as reasonably possible. Normally I'd apply some carbon stickers on bits that rub, and the chainstay, but I don't know (and can't readily find on line) any advice about suitable products for carbon frames, or even if that's a special case (vs steel, Al etc.). I found this http://road.cc/content/review/60238-shelter-frame-protection-tape-kit and this http://www.chainreactioncycles.com/lizard-skins-road-frame-protection-pa....

Can anybody tell me if this is worthwhile?

I got the old supersix 105 which comes with fully protected chain stay (clear sticker on top, metal plate on side next to chain ring. Apart from that, you'll only need 3 little adhesive protectors at the most to protect cable rub on the head tube.

Thanks Scoob. I'll check what's already on there and find a suitable sticker set to cover the remaining.
