    Shaun White Holbrook used for as primary example with them being a newer gloss black frame in my collection.

    Basically I came upon this idea maybe I am not the first to do this but it seemed like a simple measure to take to prevent Leg scratches.

    I choose a leg and throw one of my smaller bags on, then fold the leg.

    Then just throw a larger bag on, here I'm putting on a bag of my brothers from the 90's.

    Presto, Zero scratches should occur from the legs rubbing, I feel ok putting this in my pocket. I usually don't but if need be they will be well protected. :big_boss:

    I usually do this with whatever pair or pairs I take with me to work.

    Just thought I would share I'm sure I'm not the first to do this but I felt it was worth sharing with the forum.

    V from 13 for now thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

    Yeah I was expecting to get one of the foam Leg covers for shipping with my Deuce Coupe Holbrook but sadily NO foam sleeve.

    I think you can use a piece of foam rubber what is usually made for break levers.

    That might work well, but I already have an extra bag, so why spend any more money, although I'm sure they are quite inexpensive.
    I also have a small fear that putting that on and off with debris could cause scratching more than just using an extra bag.

    Just my opinion on the matter.
