Review: Bike Frame Armor

If you’re an avid mountain biker in Montana, your front tire will kick up rocks and your frame could no doubt benefit from the modular, EVA-foam-backed carbon-fiber protection provided by High Country’s Bike Frame Armor. Weighing in at virtually nothing, the HCBFA is super tough and designed to fit almost any modern bike frame. The 11-piece set seems fairly expensive, but overall it’s cheap insurance for a bike worth 50 times as much, not to mention that the armor is made by a one-man crew right here in the Rockies.

Available at area stores; $120.
