Take care,

Kurt, Jim, Bikedued,

Frame flex seems to get me too at times, and I'm not that big. 1/8" clearance isn't going to rub very often, but if you have to jump out of your saddle to get away from a dog or something, there's a fair chance some grinding will occur.

Hope the LBS doesn't give you crap when you get this worked out.
In search of what to search for.
