My Brompton is covered in some variant of helicopter tape. I bought the bike second hand and wanted to be able to sell it on easily if I decided it wasn't for me, so I thought it best to keep the frame pristine. Not sure if that really makes economic sense as the tape isn't cheap. . . not sure how much I paid overall, can't remember.
It actually looks quite nice on the gloss finish, like a clear coat layer. Think I just scoured ebay for the best deal I could find.
I'd say it's a very good idea on the areas that are likely to wear, perhaps overkill to try to cover most of a frame.
