    LOVE IT!! For My Bike Frame Protection, December 7, 2012

    I wanted to protect my new frame. I did not like the options through bike shops because of the brand logos or lack of being able to customize the size. I highly recommend ISC Racers Tape Surface Guard Tape 2″ x 12′ (HT2128). This 8mm thick stuff is just right, and it is outdoor grade. I had a hard time deciding on the thickness. The deciding factor was my call to the manufacturer who told me the thicker tape was less clear in appearance and the adhesion might be too strong (if/when removed). It could pull up paint or decals.

    I tried to find 3M’s helicopter tape, but I learned it is special order with a minimum quantity of a case. Be careful if you reckon you found it. It might not be what you want, e.g. thickness, outdoor grade, etc.

    I did encounter a learning curve installing the tape. Tools I found useful were a hair dryer, slip spray solution (water and Dawn in a spray bottle), wet finger(s), patience, and careful plotting. Be sure to work on a sterile surface with a dust free environment.

    I found I liked the wet installation method best. It allowed me to play with the positioning or pull off the tape to redo it straightforwardly. Taking my time and smoothing out each section previous to adhering a bit more was crucial to an outstanding application. Keeping my fingers, the tape, and the surface wet with the slip solution kept finger prints off too. It also allowed me to work out imperfections, e.g. bubbles. The hair dryer came in handy to soften up the glue to take out the tape or work out bubbles. Be careful not to rub on the tape too hard while it is warm or it will stretch in that area. The heat is also enabled me to do the “form” fit over the rear derailleur by making the tape more pliable. I also rounded the corners on the pieces I installed. I thought this might make them less susceptible to coming off down the road with wear, cleaning, etc.

    The largest cut of tape I installed was over the top of my top tube. The most challenging cut was a release cut over a generous part of my rear derailleur. See pixs of both in the customer pixs section.

    UPDATE (12/7/12): My first call to the manufacturer was a wonderful experience. I just called a second time and had a very terrible experience. The receptionist answered my call and was not willing to help – would not take a message, no advice on when to call back. Just said no one was available to help. Then she intentionally hung up on me! I revised my review down to 4 stars as a result.

    UPDATE (12/12/12): The manufacturer responded to my letting them know how naughtily their receptionist treated me. Then I was connected with someone that could help me with why I had called in the first place. Because of how the company handled the situation, I am revising my review back to 5 stars.

    I really used this tape to protect the anodized downtube of my mountain bike. The 30ft. x 2″ wide roll worked out perfectly for my needs, as the trailing end of the down tube (nearest the bottom bracket) just so happened to be the same width. Using some sharp scissors, I trimmed pieces to the part of the down tube and drive-side seat stay. I then used a soft rubber squeegee to press the tape down to the frame. I’ve used this tape to protect from cable rubs, mounting surfaces for equipment (like a GoPro handlebar mount), and extra chainstay/seatstay protection. It’s heavy duty and can take a beating, I just wish it wasn’t as expensive.

    Was looking forward to protecting vulnerable areas on new mountain bike but other than some of the smaller nearly flat areas on the frame the tape did not stay on for more than one day even after taking my time and making sure the surface area had been cleaned with alcohol. Tape may be too thick to really form excellent to the rounded areas.
