Dowtube protection

RIght, I have my new bike, and I am slowly going up in the world of riding.

Unfortunately, this being my first 'new' bike, I am extra concious of all the little stones and stuff that get flicked up. Is there any sort of tape to cover the underside of the downtube, like for the chainstay? Will regular sellotape work, or will that damage the paint?

    You want Copter Tape
    Sometimes parts break. Sometimes you crash. Sometimes it’s your fault.

    It ain't a proper bike until you have a couple of chips on the downtube.
