Easy to apply, basically impossible to see with the eye. Working great so far to stop paint scuff and small rock chips.
3M Bikegard Protection Film
The product arrived very quickly which is always pleasant. Watched the instructions on how to apply even tho i had some experience doing simmilar things. Tried applying both with soapy water and without and found it easier to apply without. It leaves small bubles but over time they dissapear and some you can push out. With soapy water i found it sort of lifts off the curvy parts. Maybe there is a trick for that. But overall quality is very good.
Purchase was quick and easy. Installation was simple. The 70mm wide 3M tape appears to do the job - but I can’t assess the longevity of the product, as my bike has not been out a great deal yet. 3m was enough to protect all the high wearing spots on two hardtail mountain bike frames.
i wasn't comfortable in doing the job myself so i contacted a friends fiancé who does a similar job but with signs and stuff. he tried using some stuff in his workshop but changed his mind as 3m paintgard protection film was much stronger looking material than what they used for signs. he did an excellent job in marking it out and making precise cuts for where it curved with the shape of my downtube on my specialized stumpjumper. now im not worried about the rocks flicking up as the trails have dried out considerably and its not even summer yet. thank you for supplying me with a great product
