It looks to me like the whole derailleur needs to be rotated a few degrees on the seat tube. It might make the difference between it rubbing and not, but hard to tell for sure with the macro lens...

I'm usually pretty civil, treat others with respect, and stick to the tenets of "do unto others", and "if you can't say something nice...", but that said, I am a bit opinionated...

I only voted the way I build them - for no other reason than, "that's how I've done it". My main concern when building a wheel is that it comes out round, true, spokes don't cross over the valve...

I don't think the profile was one where he felt he could put time into Froome and make it stick. There may be some head games going on as well. It sure didn't look like he struggled to stay on the...
