- the sticker which protects the frame from the chain (is there a reel of tape I can use for this? I swear there is...
- Brompton decal

'Helicopter tape'.
Edit (copied from link): "Abrasion Resistance Polyurethane is also known as Helicopter Tape (or Heli Tape). While it is used to protect helicopter blades, 3M™ Helicopter Tape is a fast and exact way to provide protection from grit, stones and scratches."

I've had a strip of insulation tape on my winter bike for god knows how many years. Works just as well but obviously not clear. Also works as rim tape.

I have used similar. It's transparent (so aesthetically acceptable) and once stuck it has stayed stuck (obvious advice to get surface properly clean).

Do you ride on a night much? I've used 3M reflective tape on my bike as a protector tape and added reflectivity/safety. You can buy it from Amazon/Ebay in a few colours (a bought black to match the bike), but make sure you buy 3M, the copies are garbage.

The brompton decals were the first thing I removed from my bikes. For one, they looked wrong on the matt black finish, plus, don't need the sticker to show they're bromptons (and I preferred the dragons, which should've been option while they were painted in Wales)
