    How can I fix this without designing and fabricating a 4" rotor?

    Nothing. You need a smaller rotor. I've recently seen some moron actually notch-out his frame to fit the rotor. All the way thru the tubing. DON'T DO THAT!!

    Yeah, is that a 6" rotor?

    Is the wheel seated in the dropouts all the way?

    Is the frame bent?

    I'm guessing this is a late 90's frame, when the standards for disc brake mounts were being worked on. I did not see a brake mount on the seat stay, the preferred location. I suppose the mount is on the chain stay, which has led to many broken stays.

    Spacer between the frame and hub?

    Does that frame even have disk tabs/mounts?

    I cannot see where it is rubbing, looks like on the chainstay right? If it is only rubbing a little, why not put a 3 mm spacer in there to spread the dropouts a little like ciaran said? I know it is not as desireable a solution, but it is quick and easy, and the frame should tolerate that much deflection without an issue.

    Are those even disc tabs? They kind of look like the holes to mount Fenders or panniers.

    I could be way off but its hard to tell from this angle, they just dont look beffy enough for disc tabs.
