Cervelo P2C Rear Wheel Problem

I can't seem to get a rear wheel to fit on this bike (2007 model). If I adjust the rear wheel so that it is in the center of the chain stays, it touches one of the seat stays. If I adjust the wheel so it is in the center of the seat stays, then it touches one of the chain stays near the bottom bracket. Are they all like this or is my frame tweaked somehow (it's carbon, so I can't imagine this happened).

I have tried other wheels and they are all the same.

I am using the 23c tire that came with the bike.

Any P2C owners out there?

Thanks,
4B

i took my stock wheels off and had no issues with the wheels i put on... i just made sure that the center of the wheel/tire is in the center of the cutout section.

Your P2 has horizontal drop outs like my P3, not sure how you can get the seat stays to rub unless maybe the wheel axle is squared off or something. One wheel set I have love the lean towards the chainring chainstay on every bike I have.


Where did you get your bike off the net? You may have a wacked drop out. Check the drop out for excessive paint, your bike should be red and white(unless you got the blue one) with aluminum drop outs with gobs of paint on them. Cervelo blobs lots of paint on the overhanging P2 rear drop out. Make sure eveythings clean and level and give us some pics too.................
