Velcro for orange five swing arm?
Where can I get some of this stuff? Is it self adhesive on the inside and just sticks under the swing arm? My old lizard skins one looks naff and tatty and is purely used for chain slap, so would prefer this minimal effect Velcro? Where to get it from though is the question?Posted 6 years agomatthew_hMember
I had some on my Nomad’s swing arm on the corner where the chain caught it if it sucked up and it stayed there for ages. It did eventually come slightly adrift at the corners after a long time but never just fell off and was actually a nightmare to take off when I did come to replace it.
It’s cheap enough to replace when needed though anywayPosted 6 years agojackthedogMember
Excuse the ignorant question but when you are spending £2-3k on a bike, surely you shouldn’t need to bodge repairs/fixes like this – the bike should not have these issues, surely (for that price?)
Chains have been noisily rattling against chain stays for as long as we’ve been using derailleur gears. Bike value has little to do with it.Posted 6 years ago
hmmmm well after 2 weeks of having the velcro on its come loose underneath off all the wet and mud etc 🙁
i just got some from ebay, is there any out there with a mega strong bonding on the back of it?
it stuck down fine in the first place, seemed pretty solid but its goosed now so after something strongerPosted 6 years agoJoeGSubscriber
Use Scotch 2228 Moisture Sealing Electrical Tape. It’s a black rubber tape, I found out about it from Mountainbike Action’s Jan 2012 issue. I was able to buy it at Lowes home center in the US, but its available online http://www.amazon.com/Scotch-2228-Rubber-Mastic-Electrical/dp/B001ULCB64Posted 6 years ago
