Seat Post Clamp Wrecking my knee! Posts: 11
edited September 2009 in MTB beginners
I'm new to this, and got myself a nice shiny bike, but i've found that my left lower leg is the same length as the distance from the pedal when horizontal and back, and the seat clamp.

I found this at the end of a long downhill, while wearing shorts, which finished with "where has all that blood come from?"

Turns out the seat clamp qr bashes the inside of my left knee when downhilling.

Has anyone else had this problem, will it go away as I get more proficient, or shall make myself some kind of protection to go over the clamp?
