Default Re: chain keeps hitting tire

I got lucky - mine barely hit the knobs for a couple rotation and done.


I would space the rear sprocket away using a set of matched washers. How much interference are you having?

Just go to the hardware store and get 9 washers....(take rear wheel off) loosen the sprocket bolts - and I'm thinking NO NEED to take the sprocket all the way off if it's loosened - then one at a time take a bolt out and put a washer between back of sprocket and outside donut.

I haven't done this - am I making sense?
