    Front brake hose

    Has anyone else had trouble with the front brake hose bowing when the forks are compressed and rubbing on the tire?
    What is the solution?
    Thank you.

    A zip tie or two is the easiest
    there are brake cable guides available and if you have a 3d printer there are models out there.

        How tight is that upper cable guide? (The cable should move freely through it) When I was running that fork I had to rotate that upper guide a little so that the cable wouldn't bind and flex like in your picture.

            Thank you for the suggestions. The hose seems free in the upper guide but I will try the "loose" cable tie.
