    Ahhh, so no need for wrenches, but it's still a trial and error game? "Digital cone adjustment" as in digits (fingers)!

    You mean that you've never tweaked a wheel out of center when closing a QR? It's not difficult to do....

    On planets where there is gravity, it actually is difficult to do. The weight of the bike, or wheel if go upside down, makes so I'd really need to make a conscious effort if to put my front wheel in off center.

    Are you sure your wheel dish isn't off and what you're really doing is tweeking the q/r to go on cockeyed to compensate for that?
