They worked for me with about 65K miles on the bike with the braces installed before I crashed in 2010. I installed mine with just the tape and they stayed put all that time. I think they worked by distributing any shock of impact along the length of the brace.
Why would you install them with just the tape, when clearly they have holes in them to mount them properly?
