I like to do offroad cycling and thus like to keep my bike in top condition. Although all the parts work fine, I have noticed that it keeps getting stone chips, especially when doing fast downhills.
I really dont like these stone chips screwing up the paint work of my £650 bike! Other than covering the whole thing in helecopter tape I'm at a bit of a loss...
I was wondering if anyone knew how I could do the following:
Protect the paint work from chips?
Repair the chips? I was thinking of painting over scratches / chips with car paint (Black) Then letting it dry for ages. I was then going to take one of those slightly abrasive pads used for car paintwork and rub down my painting until it was smooth with the existing paint work. I would finally finish by polishing with car polish. Do you ppl think this would work?
Finally, how on earch do you avoid smacking the front wheel against rocks etc when traveling downhill at 30mph? I can only bunny hop so many!
