Technical FAQ: Wheel pull-over and dropout alignment

Can mis-aligned rear dropouts cause rear wheels to pull over?

Don't miss a moment from Paris-Roubaix and Unbound Gravel, to the Giro d’Italia, Tour de France, Vuelta a España, and everything in between when you join Outside+.

Dear Lennard,

Regarding Rick’s problem of pulling his rear wheel under load, I’m wondering if he should get the rear dropout alignment checked? If the two faces aren’t parallel it might well be causing his issue.
