I disagree with the design of this pad as well. It seems to lack padding right where the downtube of a bike rests on the tailgate, just above where the downtube straps are. This is the one spot that should have the most padding. I've tried rotating the pad on my tailgate to make up for this, but then the bike separating foam blocks and straps aren't in the right position to secure the bike. As for downtube wear, that's to be expected - it's happened with every tailgate pad ever. You just need to pick up some adhesive protection for a bike if you plan on shuttling, that's all there is to it. I've resorted to running 2 pads on my tailgate - my old worn out Dakine pad under this Raceface pad. This allows for more than enough downtube cushion and while strapping/separating the bikes.

Can we just round it off at a nice even 30 inch wheel and call it a day?
