KickR Core Bike Mounted Off-Center?

Iíve had my Kicker for 6 weeks or so and have enjoyed Zwifting much more than on my Kurt Kinetic.

This evening I was cleaning my bike, and looked closely at the mounting of my Roubaix, mounted to the Core using the stock Thru Axle. Everything is tightened properly. The bike looks off-center to the right side of the trainer, and looks to be mounted at an angle to the right side of center, relative to the bolted on feet of the trainer. The cassette and chainline are fine and shifting is flawless up and down the casette.

Does anyone else see something similar? I just feel that something is amiss, although everything works great.

I will try to get a representative picture. Someone else on another site suggested checking parallel of the legs themselves.

I have a similar impression with my CORE.

My Kickr is that way. The centerline of the bike is offset from the center of the kickr. Just the way it is. Ride on.
