I am looking for options as well... Saw a GSA with carbon protective tape on the frame which looked good. Otherwise clear vinyl protective tape as used by many enduro riders?

Wunderlich makes a similar product, slightly bigger which also covers the lower most pipe on the frame.  Wunderlich is generally cheaper than TT (in MY experience - others may have a different opinion).  I have found that TT real prices in SA (comparing Rand price) are about double those in Europe whereas the Wunderlich prices are about 2/3 more (66% instead of 100% more).

All things considered, it basically remains a piece of moulded plastic, albeit high quality.  But is does look cool.  Actually, most of the TT and Wunderlich add-ons are quite cool looking of a very high quality, both in terms of function and look.  There are those who say that all it does is to add weight but actually the parts are mostly very light.  TT makes a nice bashplate, especially the longer one that extends right to the rear wheel.  Pricey but nice looking, well shaped and fitted and easy to deal with during services.

But to answer your question - I am not aware of anything else apart from those I mentioned above.

Somewhere in the pooratech thread I mentioned the plastic cable trunking (helical) that I used to cover the horizontal strut on the main stand.  It is a cheap option to protect it from road rash caused by the front wheel.  It will work well on the frame too and it is very discreet.  However, you will still need to find a solution for the centre piece.  

Both TT and Wunderlich (and others) make a product that covers the centre only.  Perhaps cheaper than cover pictured above (I am not sure) but still disproportionately expensive in SA. They come in sets whereas the covers mentioned above you have to buy seperate for each side.  Just when you think it is very pricey, you discover you are only halfway there  :P

i use rubber anti slip stuff they use on steps.  it is self sticking - I use cable ties as well, looks neater than that big contraption. 

you don't have to protect the whole area.  just one or two small sections

Hi guys

I have a solution, I work for a engineering company and will design and manufacture the desired frame protector at cost to the first person that can supply me with a LC for a day or 2. Thing is I stay in Wellington so need to be dropped at our premises.

Hope to hear from you.

Regards

I phoned the Wunderlich importer, since we stock a fair bit of their product, but as I suspected, they do not (yet?) do a frame protector for the LC bikes, only the Oil-heads.

...could be!

But my relationship with Denver (Biggs) goes back 5 years, we've worked shows together (AMiD, Africa Bike Week, etc), so cannot see that he would WILFULLY mislead me!  ;)
I just took the time to write to him, to clarify...
"Hi Chris,

"Only the ones for the old shape (2004-2012) which I will do at a special price..."

this may mean he himself has not imported them, but I did ask him if they were available, not if he had stock!

thanks for the correction...

Come in, Bling King...!

I have noticed that since I put on the larger foot guards, I dont seem to need the frame protectors anymore.

The guards thus do a dual job, keep my foot away from the shaft and from the frame.
