Recently, I installed a new set of Magura Marta sl's and notice the back side of the front brake caliper is rubbing against the spokes (every so slight, but you can hear the ting, ting on every revolution). Can anyone suggest a solution. Thanks for your help.

Pictures? Is the actual caliper hitting or the hydraulic line?

its striking the back side of the caliper itself. the wheelset is American Classic and I maybe getting a bit of flex, bowing the spokes outward. having Said that, I have ridden these wheels for a year without a problem. Alll wheel spokes probably have a certain amount of flex. When I spin the wheel on the workstand, it is clear that the spokes rub against the caliper. Everything has been mounted (properly) and remounted. It looks like the caliper is to big.
