Are these taboo on road bikes?

For those who don't know what I'm talking about, I'm referring to the Lizard Skin chain-stay guards.

I have one on the MT. bike and I love it. It keeps the frame perfect. I may put one on the road bike- why not. It serves a good purpose.

As long as you own more than 51% of the bike, you can do whatever you want to it. If you are trying to protect the paint from the chain and don't want to be so conspicuous or eye catching, then try the self adherring clear plastic from CC or Excel.

lost a couple of these on the mtbHaiku d'état

now i have wrapped the chainstay with electrical tape or black bar tape and finished with black zipties. i don't use anything on the road bikes.

I use a good old layer of electrical tape wrapped around the chainstay to protect from such things. It is quick, easy, cheap, and if done right looks pretty good.

I use one on my Bianchi since the chainstay was getting beat up pretty bad. I had to touch up the paint way too often so I just got a lizard skin and problem is solved. On my Colnago it has chrome stays so they are really not needed there.
why do you care what others think? go ahead and use itsurlyrider
