Where to buy frame protectors for handlebar spin?

Anybody know where to find tube protectors? My roadie brakes find themselves bashing the down tube occasionally from bar spin.

 

Looking for something like this:

Maybe look at silicone tape? should get it from any hardware shop around you.

I am interested to see your setup to know how your brakes hit your frame on a road bike. It can happen on my mtb but won't be able to happen on my road bike.

I just checked. At full lock to the right, the caliper will indeed hit the downtube.

 

My question would be why is this happening so much to the OP that it is an issue.

 

To that end though, why not simply one of those little stick on silicon dots that you get with most chainstay protector sets that you normally use on the headtube to stop gear or brake cable rub?

That's a decent solution in fact. Here's the brake and downtube contact...
