Brompton rear rack plus EZ wheels problem

Hi all,

I bought yesterday my rear rack and easy wheels set. They were installed at the bike store that I bought them.

However, when I fold and roll it, it's not following a straight line but turns rightwards.
From the bike store they told me that this is the way it rolls by design. Is that correct?

Do any of you have the same issue? Do your bikes with rear rack and easy wheels on roll in straight line or not?

Thanks a lot

dont worry .. or if you bend the cast aluminum ears in attempt to be perfect you may break them off the rack .

Are you pulling it or pushing? Is any of the EZ wheels turning with difficulty?

Yes I noticed that the internal wheel is touching the frame. I gave the bike again back to the store. Probably they haven't followed the instructions at all. I presume that they made mistake on the number of washers on each side.
Today I will go to pick it up hoping that this time is correct.

It is annoying because they are supposed to be brompton authorized and approved...but I had to find the mistake and push them to fix it.
