    I'm in the process of making a bunch of pretty nice ones, comparable to reload or whatever. They'll be a reasonable price and at Avenue Cyclery in SF soon if you care.

    Imagine a red bandana wrapped and tied around my top tube.
    That's what I used to have, at least.

    My friend used/uses a torn piece of champ grip. It was originally taped so that it read "HAM."

    Right, exactly! $30 for an F'ing kashiwhat? Should be called a Cashy Max. It's a top tube protector, right? I'm using a piece of cinelli cork leftover. And the lectrical tape helps keep it tight. But keep that lectric tape off my paint, it's almost as bad as tar. It helps to rub the cork goo off the cork before applying cork to the TT.
