What should I do if the tire is rubbing against the fender or the kickstand?
Luckily that’s an easy fix! This issue can be resolved by adjusting the P-clamps on the fender stays. All you need to do is loosen the left and right bolts in the stay clamp (near the wheel axle) and adjust the left and right stays so there is at least 6 mm between the tire and the fender. Once you are happy with its alignment, re-tighten the two bolts in the stay clamp.
Another potential source of friction is the kickstand. Whether the kickstand is rubbing against the rear tire, or colliding with the left crank arm, either situation can be resolved fairly easily. If the kickstand is contacting either the tire or the crank, you’ll need an 8 mm hex key. First, reposition the kickstand and tighten the bolt, then double-check that the kickstand is no longer in the way.
