Also, picked up rear of bike to spin back wheel...noticed only on a certain part of tire, chain rubs very little. Is it the tire, wheel, chain, bearings...or just ride da dam thing?!
When I put on my new tire thatís about how far mine was away 1/8 inch. I rode from Washington to California. When I got back the tire was pretty chewed up.It didnít rub any longer. I continued to ride it like that for a while. After a while I spaced bothe the front and rear sprockets out about 3/8 and zero problem after that. So if you donít mind your tire being a little messed up you can ride it with no problem. If you donít want it to rub space them out.
