I previously used the car wrap material VPS on my older bike in 2014. They did a good job with only a few gaps but importantly covered the main areas to be protected such as chain stays, all the major tubes (top, seat, down, head) forks and all around the BB area. The cost then was around R1200.00. Seven years later a few areas look a bit secondhand but underneath the bike still looks brand new when I had the chain tube piece replaced. I used a different car type material last year on my new bike. They offered a shine and matt finish, was pretty flexible and did a good job except around the head tube, where a bit of head set grease seems to have prevented proper bonding. But that can easily be replaced when I get a chance. I did have a chain jump off and tried to snag itself between the chain stay and the chainrings but the stuff held up and did not go through to scratch the paint. The overall weight of the wrap went up only by about 100g and the cost this time around was R2500. For an expensive bike its a small price to pay and the protection gives you piece of mind for the everyday bumps and scrapes that will happen when handling/ travelling. I can highly recommend this but get a reputable supplier and watch them when they apply it!
