    GT Backwoods 2.4" Tire Rubs

    So I put a 2.4 Continental Trail King on my bike. There is a few hairs of clearance between the front derailleur and the tire.

    However, when I pedal the bike flexes a bit and rubs for a short part during the revolution.

    It doesn't appear to affect the function of the derailleur.

    What if anything can/should I do about it? I do want to keep the 2.4s.

    It's an inexpensive bike. I don't want to spend much money on it.
