    alignment of thru axle fork

    ive got a frame lately and seems that the dropouts are not in balance, ive checked the dish of the wheel and its good, seems like one dropout is 1-2mm lower then the other, causing wheel tilt more to the other side of the fork.

    ive spoke with park tool about their ffg-2 tool and its just apply to the qr dropouts.

    something i can do about that?
    thank you.

    checked the dish, the fork was made by the frame builder.
    seems like one leg of the fork bent more to the side, causing the upper part to rotate in, at least i can see it in my eyes.
    if the dropouts wasnt alignment so the Thru axle wouldnt be the thread in no?

    it looks like the tyre does not seat right, but the mechanic check the dish and tell me everything is ok with the whee, i dismount the tyre couple of times and mount them again trying to make him sit straight as possible, can the rim itself be bent?, they are new!

    If you still arenít 100% itís the wheel. Then just flip the wheel 180į and see where the error is. If the error switches side, itís the wheel, if it stats on same side, itís the fork.
