    crooked fork?

    How important is it for a rigid fork to be symmetrical? I just got a new one and noticed that the tire sits decidely to one side. I have .75" clearance (fork leg to tire casing) on the non-disc side, but only .50" on the disk side. I have double-checked that the wheel is sitting square in the dropouts.

    Any insight as to how bad this may or may not be is appreciated.

    Flip the wheel around and see if there is any change. If there is no change, it's the fork and if there is change, it's the wheel (dish).

    It's better to measure rim to fork distance than tire to fork. Maybe your tire didn't seat correctly.

    My Kona Project 2 is off a bit too. But I don't notice it in handling. The only thing that bothers me is that I KNOW it is off.
