I can realign it by moving axle down a bit in open non threaded dropout and will look into building up the dropout with some jbweld maybe. This is literally the first time I have ever owned a bike/bike frame brand new as the first person to ride it , everything else I have is second or third hand and so I was not so sure what my expectations should be around alignment if I was being too perfectionist or if I should be trying to get it replaced.
Out of curiosity - how much bigger is the dropout non-threaded hole compared with the through bolt? (I may have incorrect term there, as I've never seen one )
