Washers? Sure, if you want to void your warranty and provide irrefutable online evidence that you did it. Get rid of those wheels and move on. They look like American Classic (style) hubs w/ the stupid small front hub bearings. They're smaller than skateboard wheel bearings...famous for not lasting very long.

Are those aluminum dropouts? If so, just take a file to 'em. I've heard of this happening before. A few strokes with a half-round file ought to do it.

Otherwise, I'd either skip using them on the Canyon and reserve them for the Cannondale, or exchange them for something practical, even though I feel it's the fork design that's at fault.

Hi Peter,

They are in fact alu dropouts (mounted in carbon fork). I just put a super thin washer on the side where its rubbing and the wheel spins freely now. So it wont take much filing i assume.
