OK, a little bit of background. I've recently built up my STS frame, only to discover that the rear wheel sits a few mm off centre. Usually this wouldn't bother me, but the tyre clearance isn't the best even when the rear wheel is dead centre, so I'd like to get it sorted!
As was suggested in a previous post
I made, I have put the back wheel in the other way around, to try to determine whether it is the frame or the wheel which is causing the misalignment. Turns out that it's the frame
So, the frame is slightly out of line. This doesn't overly concern me, as the bike is not going to be a regular rider and the misalignment isn't causing any problems with regard to the rear bushes/shock/gears/brake etc.
I think I might get the wheel re-dished to compensate for the misaligned frame. If the rim could be pulled over by a couple of mm towards the drive side, then that would bring the rear wheel back into the centre.
What do you (more knowledgeable people than me!) reckon?
I can take a photo later to illustrate what I'm talking about.
