    Peace 9r Multi + Rampage 2.35 = Clearance issues?

    I bought a pair of Rampage 29r tires for my Peace and noticed that my FD cage is rubbing against the rear tire when on the granny. I had the FD adjusted at my local shop to no avail. Now not only does the cage rub against the tire when on the granny ring, its also rubbing against the chain when it's on the 3 biggest gears.

    Anybody else with the same set up having the same issues?

    Cross-chaining. It is a common problem to have the chain rub on the FD cage when in the granny ring and trying to be in the few smallest gears in the back. Just don't do it. There is most likely a similar ratio to be found in the middle ring and a mid-large cassette gear.

    Not cross chaining. Chain rubs against FD when the rear gears are on the 3 biggest gear (while on granny and mid chainring). The FD cage rubs against the rear tire when on the granny gear.

    I will try rotating the FD body and see if it clears the tire.

    maybe ur BB doesnt have enough spacers so ur having to adjust your front derrailleur too close to the frame to be able to drop to the smallest chain ring? I don't know what that could be, other than your tire being too big for the setup.

    Went 1x9 instead. Will figure out the issues next spring. Too little time to ponder the problem.
