 I hope your are joking...

 No, man, you have to grind the thickness of the protections from the stanchions first

 Covering your frame in plastic is like when old people cover their couch in plastic. The entire concept is lost on me.

 @Neechy:

But paint touch-ups are super easy and much cheaper, especially if it's gloss with a think clear coat.
  • 9 0
 @z-man: Depends on the frame color, some are harder to match than others. A bike covered in touch up spots also looks meh.

 I never got it either, but I got offered a full invisiframe treatment super cheap when I got my XC bike and it's been pretty amazing. I scraped it on a few rocks and it still looks as good as new and is much easier to clean. It's now a year older than my enduro bike at it looks brand new, while my non-wrapped enduro bike has scrapes and dings all over the place. Ultimately it doesn't matter *that* much, but it is nice to have a box fresh looking bike every time I ride it!

 It's when they have a big plastic sheet over the floor and come into the room wearing an apron and elbow length gloves that you've got to start really worrying.

 @veero: that was lame. Try again.

@z-man: A couch doesn't get to see much rocks and roots in its lifetime. Horrible comparison
  • 3 4
 @parkisatool: do I give 2 shits what you think? No. Try again.

Also I don't think you have a clue what OP was on about. Putting a cover on a sofa/couch isn't intended to protect it from rocks and roots...

 Never understood who the f buy frame protection? And more over why? Like tv remote in the zip bag etc…

 @nickmalysh: you have a 3k painted remote for your TV?

 @TheOriginalTwoTone: the price of the frame matters only when i buy it, then i ride till it retires on the wall or in recycling

 Hand made! So sick. Maybe they'll have a kit for my bike by 2023, when my bike maybe shows up.

 Strictly for resale value is one reason for protecting you frames. I'll do it strategically but not the entire frame. Someone asked me why my mountain bike is so dirty the other day. What??

 @extratalldirtrider: if the film isn't installed right, dirt gets underneath, forget trying to clean that...

 @enduroelite: No. He just meant a mtb is obviously meant to be dirty.

 Everything about this kit looks exactly like what I got from Ride Wrap?
  • 2 1
 Yea looks like they are just copying them and the coverage looks less especially on the rear triangle.

 I have the Orbea rallon with a frame wrap like the one they used as an example. It just looks like they have more pieces. Don't know if they are even needed...

 I went down to my local auto detailing shop and just bought a sheet of 3M. Cheaper, and they actually showed me how to put it on (used a custom car panel for an example). Also, I got to pick and choose the area to apply instead of a kit already choosing what would be covered.

 I tailor made my own with a bunch of Xpel Ultimate Plus, it's the same stuff, that Invisiframe uses. The advantage of doing it yourself is, that you have gapless fit.
  • 2 0
 Post up some pics. Without a cutter I'm seriously doubting yours is gap-less and looks good.
  • 1 0
 There is no overlap, wait, I'll quickly take a few close up pictures. I made it gapless (well ok there sometimes is a gap below one Millimeter), by making test pieces out of paper first and then carefully cutting any overlap, that was there due to the film stretching, with a very sharp scalpel. Keep in mind, this process took way longer than installing any precut kit (easily more than 50 hours)

 @A1990ToyotaHilux: Yea for the time it took you and sorry not to be insulting, but I don't want 5 pieces just for a seat stay.

Not sure what you get paid, but it cost you a lot more than a kit would have.

 @TheOriginalTwoTone: I did it myself, because there was no kit available at the time and I didn't feel like sending my frame overseas. At that time I was in one of the exam phases at my university, so I used my study breaks to chill a little, while installing my frame protection.

 Good luck taking this shot off ..most of the time it does peal off some paint or decals..then what..and using a heat gun ..not worth it..looks horrible too..that dyed bro stuff is garbage

 I’ve got tailored frame protection. It’s called clear gorilla tape from Sainsbury’s which I cut into bits and stick it on myself.

 LOL Good luck getting that off

 @lefthandohvhater: Yeah you just pull it
  • 4 1
 @jaame: And then you're left with a bike covered in glue. Not fun.

 @lefthandohvhater: Goo Gone, problem easily solved hassle free.
  • 3 1
 @lefthandohvhater: there are some good YouTube videos on the angle to pull the tape so the glue residue is minimal

 @jaame: Ahh good old youtube.. Is there any completely random question it hasnt answered

 Was a matter of time before someone came after RideWrap. They got first mover advantage though - better product (looks like more coverage) at a better price. Hopefully competition in this space drives down prices *tries not to laugh*

 Invisiframe?

 @spendtimebehindbars: Sorry, but you're doing this wrong. You need to stubbornly comment that you're right and then go after @Neechy on a personal level.

 @Neechy: There was one way before them as well, but I won't mention them since the customer service sucks and I don't want to give them credit.

 I bought used carbon frame with invissible foil. Some dirt was stuck under it so i removed it, letters went with it. Now i have SANT CRZ.

 I think protecting your bike with plastic is like not having sex with your girlfriend. It's like keeping her clean for the next man to ruin. (Change girlfriend to boyfriend, etc)

 Just get Invisiframe, been making it for years

 160 micron? That is way thinner than most paint protection films I remember reading about.
  • 4 2
 This is for Sunday riders... people who ride worry about the components!
  • 1 0
 Your frame is a pretty important component... my Stumpjumper had 3 cracks in the frame before I replaced it and I think protection like this could have helped deal with those impacts - might still have that "component." Also, you may want to ride your frame a year and then sell it, and you can get a great price for one that's blemish free once you peal the protection away.

Basically... myself and more than a few other "Sunday riders" who thrash our bikes good and proper have found frame protection worth the hassle.

 These products are for people that actually care for their $5,000, currently effectively irreplaceable, investment.

I'm happy that that's throwaway shit money to you. Bless your heart.

 Frame Protection is useless. give me crack protection at 160 microns thickness. Actually, just ride your bike

 They hand make each kit for only 95 Euros?! Wish I'd know that before I bought my Ride Wrap kit...
  • 8 1
 RW kit is more coverage, thicker, and they actually have designs for thousands of bikes.

 @mesdan69: It was a bad joke, but I was still only joking. I know they don't actually make the kits by hand, and I know that Ride Wrap is the best. But you sure won the props!
