    front dérailleur rubbing chain on middle chainring

    I recently bent the crap out of my crankset and replaced it. It was a 22-32-42 and the new one is a 22-32-44. I've got everything installed and taken it on a couple rides. The derailleur cage sits perfectly on the 22t chainring throughout all the gears on the cassette as well as the 44t. For some reason, though, the cage is rubbing on the chain when I use the 32t chainring on the 4 smallest (or highest) gears on the cassette. Like I said, the small and large chainrings don't rub at all in any gear combos but the middle does. Any idea how to fix this?
