Try the halflink. If your wheels are true and its still rubbing, either lower your psi or you just may have to get a different tire (though I know thats not what you want to do). What tire and frame are you running?

Get a single half link, or a full half link chain?

Change your gearing a bit? You could invest in a larger tooth count sprocket to take a little of that slack up. What gearing do you have?

Hacksaw the back of your frame off and JB weld some frame extenders in.

|

Your frame doesn't have the clearance for your tires. That is the problem have encountered. You need a new frame or different tires if you want it right.

Hacksaw-ing it custom is a great idea but add some duct tape to the JB weld for max strength.

After I though about it a bit, you could just get a hammer and smash whatever is rubbing the tire until it doesn't rub anymore.

Ahhh the classic asnwer from when frames were nearly double the weight and you could literally hammer a tube flat with no change in strength.

Saw your chainstay/seatstays off. Easy as that, no more rubbing and all the slamming you can possibly take.

|

I remember back in the day, we would hammer the chainstay and seat stay braces in on Standard STA500 frames so we could slam the wheel at 13.75" and that was with a 1.95" tyre.
