Brake pads rubbing the tire
Hi all, I have a 2006 Trek 1000. I have recently puctured two tires before realizing it's not the tire's problem but rather the brake pads that are rubbing the tires. The problem is more serious on the rear brake. The brake pad shoes are already adjusted to the lowest position on the caliper. But the pads still land too high on the rim, thus rubbing the tire. It looks like the brake bridge is a little too high on the bike, I can almost insert a finger between the bridge and the inflated tire. I guess that is the root cause.
Other than getting another frame, what would you recommend to avoid the problem? The brake is a dual pivot that came with the bike. Tires are 700x23c. Thanks in advance.
