I'm currently building up my Ripley but when I put the rear wheel in I notice that the rotor is rubbing on the brake mounts. I had a floating Formula rotor on so swapped that for a non floating to see if that helped. No joy!
I'm running a Chris King hub and it's almost like the axle is too short or the gap in the frame is too wide! I know the axle is 142mm as it came off another bike ( I even measured it just to make sure!).
The possible causes I can think of are; I'm missing a part from the dropouts, I'm missing a part form the hub or I'm over-tightening the Maxle.
I've checked the manuals of both the frame and hub and everything seems to be in order there so that leaves the Maxle. How tight should it be? Just snugged up then close the lever? When I close the lever I really see the gap between the rotor and the brake mounts close up. It looks like it needs a washer in there!
Sorry for the lengthy post but any advice would be very welcome! The bike is so close to finish and I just want to ride it!
