I got a used '03 Uzzi and I really love it except for a stupid problem with the tire rubbing
against the chain stays (I think) whenever I land off any kind of jump (even a 2-foot drop will do).

It's a 2.35'" tire (IRC Kujo) and there seem to be enough clearance (about 1/4" on each side).

I thought maybe it's happening because I am running a regular hub with spacers instead
of a wide 140cm hub that the frame is designed for. But it seems weird that the wheel
would flex so much just because of the spacers.

Also, my chaistays are in the short position (the long position seems to have less
tire clearance).

Any ideas?
Thanks!

I had this same issue..........intense said not to run the shock on the last hole/furthest hole down on the swing link. After setting it in the center hole the problem was resolved.

That's likely it. I am using the last hole right now. Will switch to the middle one.
