    I have one of these to protect a carbon downtube:

    Quite thick, rubbery, translucent long strip. Mine’s been in situ for over a year and all good.

    Or, get some craft foam for 79p and duct tape it to a clean downtube. Lasts months, doesn’t damage the paint and the sheet’s big enough for a couple of applications.
