Slanted front wheel

(closed)
hey guys. I haven't had this problem since I had my bike built but I'm having a problem with my front wheel now. It's a campy rim laced to a Phil wood high flange hub, and when I mount my when onto the fork, it seems to slant towards the left. Also, the cones in the front hub spin as I tighten/untighten my left side bolt. Can anyone help

Here are some attached photos:

I've mounted this front wheel on 3 different bikes so I'm sure my fork isn't bent. Thanks all.

either your front wheel somehow came out of dish (doesn't usually happen with a road front wheel). or your fork dropouts are bent. or your axel is but.

What happens when you put a different wheel in that fork? If you get the same result, the fork is bent. If not, your wheel needs some slight re-dishing.

If you don't have another wheel, flip yours around. If it leans to the same side, it's the fork. If it leans the other way, it's the wheel.

If it bothers you, do what Scrod or mktng said. I have the same problem on my bareknuckle. It doesn't bother me or affect my riding much so whatevers.
