Dear community,

I have just purchased my new Specialized Diverge Sport Carbon bike and would love to find some good solutions to protect the rarbon frame. What are you using?

Thanks!

The Diverge comes with a chainstay protector. You can get downtube or extra chainstay protectors - clear to graphics - from Wiggle, Amazon etc. To avoid excessive paint chips/nicks stay off gravel roads. Other than that normal washing will suffice.

Helicopter tape?

If you have deep pockets look at Invisiframe - https://www.invisiframe.co.uk/

They use 3M Venture Shield vinyl film and have generic kits as well as ones cut for specific models. My local MTB shop appear to fit them to a lot of the (bleedin' expensive) bikes they sell.

Really nice, but expensive. I bought something cheaper now...which will probably be good too.

How does one know it's a non-yellowing tape? Maybe it's written in the instructions?
Thanks in advance.
