Bicycle Chainstay Protector – Bicycle Chainstay Protector Pad Reviews

posted by Althetrainer on 11/03/2010 Certified Owner

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
Other:
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.
