Hey all,

I have Ultegra 6800 shifters that are getting scratched up. Any aftermarket protection available for these? (or tweaks).

Cheers, Tim

You can fit helicopter tape to the blades if you want. Just need a steady hand and a hair drier.

Best way is not to lean the bike against walls. I've got 15 year old levers where the only damage is from thousands of shifts.
