Tire height problem!!! Rubbing on frame!!!
Ok, I took the reccommendations of a few people and bought some 700 x 28c Gatorskins for a new build. I inflated them to 110 psi. I installed the front tire onto the bike and notice that the front wheel rubbed on the brake arms ever so slightly. As I hadn't yet installed the STI I think that will be ok, because when I draw the brake arms in toward the rim the arm raises slightly to allow clearance. However, the back is a problem. The tire rubs on the frame!!! Is there such a thing as a frame that will only allow a certain height of tire? I am stumped!!!

Easton Vista wheels
Continental Ultra Gatorskins 700 x 28c
I chose that size because I am 275 lbs and ride on semi rough roads.
Thanks for any help.
