There's no "fix" as such, if it's out then something isn't fitted correctly.

Check the BB is fitted properly: is there a gap between the cups and the frame?

Are the cranks fully on? Hold the ends of the crank arms and try and wobble it left to right: there shouldn't be any play.

It's a tifosi 102mm bb. All sugger up as tight as they can be. They have like a lip so it can't go in any further :-( humm

Because of the long rear triangle / chainstay "dent" it will clear it but the crank looks way to close to the fixed cup........

Front chainline.

Looking down on the chainset from directly above, what is the gap between the chainrings and the chainstay?

I'm with Shaun: your cranks look to be sitting too far on the spindle.

My first thought was that you had a JIS BB and an ISO crank, but that would result in the opposite problem.

That fixed cup doesn't look like Chorus? Shouldn't the axle be 108-112 mm ish to fit......

Ah, just re-read above posts and it's a Tifosi :)

If it's all bolted up tight and nothing is rubbing then stick a spacer in the rear of the FD cage and ride away :D
