I'm relatively new to biking and I'm new to the forum. I bought a Trek 7.3 FX today, and after I got it home, I noticed that one of the front brake dampers (not sure if that is what it is called, but I've attached pics to show exactly what I'm referring to) is permanently touching the front wheel. The pics show what I'm talking about, although from the pic you cannot necessarily tell that the damper is actually touching the wheel -- it is. The second pic is a zoomed in version of the first pic. Thus, the front wheel doesn't spin as well as it should because there is perpetually a small amount of resistance from that brake damper.
My two questions are... 1) This should not be happening, right? 2) Is it something I can fix myself, or do I need to take it back to the place I bought it and have them fix it?
