That was one of the first things I thought of. It appears to be straight and not out of allignmnet. I need to swing it by the shop and have them take a look at it just to make sure though. Chainring bolts are tight, as is the left crank arm. I can look down and clearly see the thing rub.... driving me nuts
Get on a cross bike.... you'll like it ;)
