Bob Jackson World Tour Geometry

Does anybody know where to find a geometry spec sheet for a BJ world tour? My new jackson has a 130mm rear spacing. When I first noticed this, I was a bit surprised, but shrugged and figured that I'd just spread the frame 5mm. But then I installed my new handbuilt wheel with a 700x35 tire (panaracer pasella), only to find that it does NOT fit. It is stuck in the seatstays . This has got to be a mistake in the brazing shop, but I'd like a geo spec sheet just to be sure.

Anybody? And yes, I'll be calling them in the morning.

Well, their website doesn't list spacing, but does say "This frame is built to fit Cantilever or `V` brakes which allows a 700-35 tyre with mudguards to be fitted", so you certainly have a right to complain
