How do you center the front wheel on a fork?

Thanks for any help! Try putting the wheel in the fork one way, then flip it and put it in the other way. If it is too close to the OTHER side after you flip it, that tells you the wheel itself is not centered. If it’s always to close to the same side of the fork regardless, something is up with the fork or dropouts.

How do you fix an uneven bike wheel?

How do you center a bike fork?

Place the rubber-soled foot inside the crown of the fork and pull the upper blade until the gap at the fork end increases by a couple of millimeters. This should be measured. With the foot in the same place, pull the other fork blade until the original spacing is restored. Ride the bicycle and assess the difference.
