i think you might be able to run a low clamp FD to give you more clearance, it should put the FD clamp lower on the seat tube and a little farther away from your tire, from the pics i see of that frame the current FD clamp location is right where the tire is closeset to the frame, so a little lower should move it out of the way, you could also try to move the FD a little bit farther down on the seat tube, but only down far enough not to mess with shifting, if that doesnt work then your LBS should have a low clamp FD in stock for you try out, and if it doesnt work they should let you return it.
