I have been told you can buy carbon stickers to put on your frame where cable rub may occur or have occurred, being naive I didn't do anything to protect this places, does anyone know where i can buy some of these carbon sticker?

    Just get some copter tape from Biketart. Nie on invisible, cheaper than the patches, really tough and easy.

    I have Lizard skin carbon look leather patches but in the past i've used Leeches puncture patches as they are padded and very hard wearing.
    What if your dreams and fears existed in the same place? What if to get to heaven, you had to brave hell? What if everything you've ever wanted cost you everything you've ever achieved? Would you still go there?

    insulation tape must be the cheapest option. Might need replacing quicker, but for the price of a carbon sticker set, you could get about 100 metres of insulation tape! :)

    Bear in mind that bikes will look tatty if used properly anwyay. You'll be protecting some tiny part of the paintwork, but the rest of it will be covered in gashes, scratches, chips and abrasions with in a month or two anyway.
