I dunno what's goin' on. Have a 700c rim, tried to put new Gatorskin 700c x 25 tires on the bike (Nishiki Olympic). Tire's rubbing on the brake bridge/thing that the brake attaches to on the bike (seen in pic). Is the rim not really a 700c? Rim says "avaya 7000". I could have sworn the inside of the rim said 700c. Tire itself fits on the rim. Has a low spot though where the bead doesn't seem to meet up with the edge of the braking surface. Doesn't rub too bad, just a little 'nic'.
