    I've Got some thick Rhino tape on the downtube where its going to get hammered worst by stones and gravel (if we ever get a summer). My current bikes got an anodised finished frame over a ball peened alu so normal gloss helitape stands out, after a bit of searching I found a company on fleabay who sell a textured finish which blends in quite nicely. I've used this on cable rub points and other areas likely to get damaged like the top tube, chain stays etc.

    Seems a real shame to have a nice frame only for the finish to get trashed by stones and dirt, let not mention falling off ;)
