Chain Guard

Pardon me in advance if this question is completely absurd.

I recently bought a new full-carbon bike and, additionally, picked up a Lizard Skin Carbon stay chain protector. The LBS put it on and, I believe, resultant of the humidity, the thing will not stay on. For now, I have it bound down with zip ties; and while aestitics are not everything, it looks silly on my new bike.

Would it damage either the frame or the paint to use a super glue or any other type of adhesive? What type, if any, adhesive would you recommend.

I bought one for my wife's bike. Cleaned everything with alcohol, softened the protector with the hair dryer (as recommended), even zip-tied the thing on overnight.

Sure 'nuf, the thing wouldn't stay on.

I wrote them several e-mails--none of which was answered. Eventually, I simply bought one of their wrap-around protectors (e.g., http://snipurl.com/gkn4), but will likely never give the company another dime.

FWIW, you can use electrical tape or an old punctured inner tube and do the same thing for low cost. As to the adhesive question: I probably would use something like contact cement.

If you do get that bad-boy carbon deal to work, please let us know how!

Good luck....
