Its........wait for it. A bike. A mountain bike. It will get scratched up if you do it right. Your analogy is retarded.

What's a DT protector?

@Eoin I didn't call you a cry baby. Re-read my post. I referred the OCD rider's bikes as their baby. Butt hurt cannot be that steamy.

OK..fair enough. But I can still have an opinion. Hopefully this doesn't turn into an echo chamber like PB has devolved into.

Mateo, I've actually CTRL+F this thread and the word hate (in caps) only shows up in two posts and none is from chase. When did all of a sudden any opinion became hate? Some are more vocal than others. It's an internet forum, it's a throw away discussion not the concilium of the gods.

Hostility is the result of my lack of patience for dumb stuff and how this industry will promote it nonstop and never mention that it is not necessary. Nobody wants to upset their buddies in man buns. I will and don't GAF.

Why even bother yourself with frame coverage? it is already painted, why to add wrap on top of that?
it is free, less stressful and 0 hours wasted, and 0 waste

I'm also OCD on maintenance, noise silencing, cable management, chainstay slap/suck protection, but I've never wrapped a frame, and I have several. Maybe one day. I've been selling some of my old bikes, and what I've notice is that by the time I sell them, they're not worth much more because of some mint condition, and in fact they're not that beaten up after a while. PS: I don't shuttle and avoid ultra-mud wrecking rides.
But it might change one day if I start to enjoy the tedious process ;D

Never wrapped a frame. Ride them til the wheels fall off. Hah

Honestly never seen a buyer who was like "I was gonna buy your bike but this guy's doesn't have scratches so I'm buying it".

Cannot upvote u more! the only WRAP that is acceptable on the bike is chain stay, just to prevent metal on metal noise is some frames

@NorCalNomad please don't start throwing out political jargon. VitalMTB is still relatively fun and not a bunch of bickering. Let it be a trash tralking party. The word toxic only needs to be used to describe chemicals so we can stay casual and not fall into the trap of talking like Karen.

I have the material and can cut and apply film over vulnerable spots as needed. It is driven by carbon fiber garage queens who obsess over resale. I don't buy my bikes thinking immediately about resale. That is dumb.

In an industry overwhelmed with dumb and overpriced products. The protection film market is leading the charge for the stupid looking to give away their money because they don't want a scratch on their frame. Insane.

Reviews were great everywhere, in particular one here on Vital. Those made me buy it, cause I have a 36 RC2 from 2018 and the small bump/mid is not that great. So before I pulled a Smashpot buy I went to the Runt. And it is way better than what I had ... more »

@ccolagio

Two thoughts...

1) It'd be great if you were willing to engage my ideas, as opposed to just saying "you are wrong". Show me why. Use that brain of yours. Scolding me like an authoritatrian nun doesn't do much to promote ideas of tolerance, love & unity.

_Lan,

I'm sorry to hear you had to deal with a racist remark in your lifetime. Obviously, we're aiming to stop that in full as a society. However, again, I don't think these protests are really achieving that, do you?
