    Niner EMD issue - knee rub

    Hi
    2012 Niner EMD-
    Anyone have a problem with their left knee rubbing the rear brake hose clip? After my first ride, a spot on my knee is bleeding from rubbing against it at times (during technical decents/climbs)
    I see that most of the new niners have the cables mounted on the sides so I am suprised I've never heard of it before. Maybe it's just me; I dunno.. But I;m not really sure what to do about it! I can't continue to ride like this; it's very tender at this point.

    Use a zip tie with a small head and angle the head so it is out of the way. It'll be stronger and it will not cut you. Also, why are your knees bowing in so much when you pedal?

    I'm not sure why my knees are bowing; they arn't under normal circumstances it's more when things get technical. I am pigeon toed pretty bad; that could be an issue. I've never had a problem on a different bike including my previous EMD which was a 2011.
