Time Capsule: 2006 - Pinkbike's 20th Anniversary
It incorporated all the poor pedaling and terrible ergonomics of a DH bike with the terrible ergonomics but awesome flickability of a BMX. Those were the days.

First Look: Nukeproof ARD Tire Inserts
This looks promising. The Vittorias looked good but these are much cheaper.

Opinion: Why Have Bike Makers Ignored this Grassroots Fix?
@LOLWTF: You do. You said that it looks like your grannies house.

That's ridiculous. I've had three bikes professionally wrapped and nobody noticed until I pointed it out. Major damage wrecked a panel but not the paint so I replaced those panels and everything looks good as new.

@Blackers: For high impact areas (under chainstays, under down tube) use Shelter Tape - it's super thick and absorbs some shock. https://www.effettomariposa.eu/en/products/shelter-off-road/ For abrasion resistance use this 3M stuff. I think this is it: https://www.amazon.ca/Translucent-Helicopter-Frame-Protection-Protective/dp/B00S0I9TCE/ref=sr_1_1/136-9543048-0103235?ie=UTF8&qid=1539362937&sr=8-1&keywords=helicopter+tape+3m

Or just buy a premade kit from invisiframe. It's tricky to install yourself and do a really good job with no kinks or bubbles. rockwrap.ca or ridewrap do the whole thing for you for like $200.

@RideWrap: Awesome. Such a good service. Ideally shops should offer your service as an upgrade when they buy their bike (get a discount on a wrap when you buy it with your new bike).
