So maybe this design is flawed enough that it makes it too difficult to manufacture a very balanced out fork? Maybe all replacements would have similar variances in the tolerance or maybe my fork is the outlier? I will go back to the dealer and see what they think. Surly promote this design as making it easier to remove the wheel , which it is, but maybe at a cost.
Seeing that its a 2mm difference to the side of the fork from the rim on one side the wheel really is only off 1mm from center as it borrows 1mm from the other side if you follow. I don't like to be too pedantic about this stuff and I can kind of fix it in the center by moving the wheel around in the open dropout but I had hoped that a brand new frame with a good rep wouldn't need such compromises.
If you centred the rim by adjusting spoke tension, would the rim be moving toward the disc side or away from it? If away from it, there could be a tiny advantage to that, with slightly better spoke tension overall.
