argon 18 e117 - Front pad rubbing the wheel

Hey! I have an issue and I can't figure out the solution despite looking online. I just installed new wheels on my 3117 and my front brake pad is rubbing it. Since these are aero brakes, there's nothing online/YouTube that explain how to fix it. Can anyone help?

Is it this bike? If so, and you have rim brakes…it might be that the brake caliper is out of align and/or the wheel not centered in the fork/dropouts. That realignment is fairly simple. Other things to check would be to make sure the axle is in the dropouts completely on both sides, and/or that the axle is resting in the dropout and not the QR skewer. — Dan
