    Chainstay protector?

    Any idea what I can do to protect the chainstay and work around the braze-on when the shifter cable is routed along the chainstay?

    I've employed electrical tape. Does the trick, comes in a variety of colors.
    This is Africa, 1943. War spits out its violence overhead and the sandy graveyard swallows it up. Her name is King Nine, B-25, medium bomber, Twelfth Air Force. On a hot, still morning she took off from Tunisia to bomb the southern tip of Italy. An errant piece of flak tore a hole in a wing tank and, like a wounded bird, this is where she landed, not to return on this day, or any other day.

    Get some 3m carbon sticky and wrap it around your chainstay.

    Just answering my own question. I got static cling vinyl at Dick Blick Art Supply. Works real well, err, so far.

    I use cloth bar tape, it's rugged.

    I just use a Lizard Skins chainstay protector. It works pretty well and doesn't bind the cables.

    I promise that stuff will not ever wear. I have it in black, it looks nice and reasonably elegant. And i doubt it will fail in 2 centuries
