Invisiframe?
#1
I know some of you have used this recently, I was just wondering how it is holding up and if you're still happy with it. How hard/easy was it to apply? The cost is quite high compared to just buying some 3M car wrap and I'm worried about cocking up the application process.

Thanks.

Still love it - worth every penny.

It has got a few hefty lumps out of it after various professional dismounts Wink But it hasn't marked my lovely carbon frame so I'm happy!

It hasn't peeled away either and still looks really good and invisible.

Get it done!  8)

Was impressed with the finish and the service provided by Lee, Id recommend him, its just a long way to go if you get him to apply it.

Thanks, I'm sure you wrote about fitting it but I couldn't find it. How did you find the fitting process? All the wetting and sliding around just has disaster written all over it to me! It takes pretty well forming it around the curves etc? Thanks.

Getting him to fit it would be the ideal solution but with the costs of sending the frame insured and back makes it a bit unrealistic. Thanks

Just ordered mine for the Capra; heard & read nothing but positives about it & as the kits are designed individually for specific bikes you can't go wrong really Smile

Fitting was fairly easy but also fairly time consuming... 4 solid hours to do the frame and forks.

As it's soaked in water you can't really go that wrong, especially when you've done a couple of bits and got your eye in.

As soon as you've used/fitted the invisikit the extra 25 or so quid for it won't be a consideration... The biketape would be useful for going on areas here and there were you may have unexpected rub etc.

Thanks for proving my point "£25 isn't a consideration", true it's not for rich people with Surrey bikes. I was suggesting an alternative which works just as well, is far cheaper and has done me for years but then I don't ride at Surrey and I know they probably wouldn't tolerate it up there, depends where the OP rides? No such thing as unexpected rub if you do it properly to start with Wink

PS: Had a quick look on their site, was about £50 odd for a Scott bike I clicked on randomly, would be about £8 for the solution I pointed to
