  • Bicycle Chainstay Protector

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:less than 1 day

    Pros:

    They are cheap compared to other places

    Handy little protector pads

    Made of washable materials so can be cleaned and used many times

    Velcro closure, easy to use

    The Shimano logo makes it look fancy

    Cons:

    A bit shorter than I thought but I suppose it's long enough to protect the chain stay

    Material is a bit on the thin side (but for something less than $2, this is a pretty good deal)

    None others

    OtherThoughts:

    I bought two of these for my husband's mountain bikes. I haven't given him the protector sleeves yet so I can't comment on how well they fit, but I don't think fitting will be a big problem.

    The Shimano logo (small piece of plastic) is stitched on so can be removed for easier cleaning.

    Bottomline:

    If you have an expensive mountain bike, get a couple of these to protect the chain stay. These are cheap but will do the job just fine. They don't seem very sturdy though so get a few extra ones for future replacements.
