    Chain rubbing in Front Der cage on prophet?

    I'm trying to figure out if I have the wrong front derailleur on my Prophet or at least why the chain rubs the bottom surface of the cage while I am in my smallest chainring (22t) and the small half of my cassette. It is an XT e-type (not sure which one) and I have confirmed and re-confirmed that the derailleur is in it's lowest position. The derailleur was on the bike when I bought it used so I don't know if it is stock or not and couldn't see any markings. I'm running my bike 2x9 with 32-22 in front and 11-34 in back. Any help would be appreciated!

    In a workstand, mine rubs too when in the small ring but as soon as I sit on it, the sag takes care of it and I never noticed it while riding.
