    Btw, found another solution for this (since my bike didn't come with one). I got some mud guards that can be glued together and reshaped to become a down-tube protector.

    Someone finally figured it out. Great!

    Definitely a cool idea. It looks great. Found you a video through Seth‘s bike hacks. I also subscribed to your channel

    Would a hairdryer work instead of a heat gun?

    replacing a metal kick panel on my mx5 with kydex (hopefully)

    I enjoyed the extensive initial testing.

    I built a protection for my specialized enduro this way, used the original screws. Hope it is more stable than the original one.

    Wow, great idea and great job!! I defiantly would have gone with a 3M double sided tape for a cleaner look.

    3M emblem adhesive tape would hold that thing guard on like a real bastard. Probably better than the zip ties. Might even pull off the frame tape before the guard releases from the emblem tape. I use that stuff for motorcycle frame guards, tank protectors, etc. Took me over an hour to pull off a diamond plate frame protector I made for a fuel tank…

    Cool video. I use kydex for making knife sheaths. If you want to heat it up super easy and consistant, chuck it in a toaster over. Works great!

    Ok I got this is my recommended right after seeing Seth's video… complex algorithm?
