If you care about your bike like most of us, this is a good addition to help keep things looking tidy.
I missed the specs on the difference between sizes. Since I have a full size mountain bike, I figured the large would fit. It's too big and I should have gotten the medium. The cost doesn't justify sending it back so I'm gonna see if the wife can sew a seam in it where it will fit snug. The cover itself will work as advertised so I'll give it 5 stars. I guess some bikes have som huge chain stay tubes.

I splurged and bought myself a carbon mountain bike last year, and i'm pretty OCD when it comes to taking care of it. I had one of these on my first mountain bike (what feels like) many decades ago, and thought I'd pick one up for my new whip. It does a nice job of eliminating chain slap. It puts my OCD mind at ease that my chain is not somehow creating micro cracks in the CF of my chainstay every time it slaps it. It also just makes for a quiter ride. Can't go wrong.
