So the city has installed some new racks at the train station for us. They are the big wavy "U" style.
In the week since they've been in place, I've picked up two nasty scratches on my frame. The thickness of the rack tubing is such that I have to rest the bike against the rack to use my U-lock. Since I ride steel, I'd kind of like to avoid these scratches! What do you guys do? As the bike is black, I'm thinking of running a length of electrical tape along the frame where it rests on the rack. Any other suggestions short of a BMX tube pad?
