So I was wondering why the bike was tugging when I was turning, then I realized the front wheel was not actually centered in the fork! But still rotated essentially true - minimal brake rotor rubbing (mostly fixed by adjusting the brake)
Turns out the right side dropout had a burr in it and the entire axle was not fully seated on one side! I logged ~16km like that! Eek heh.
My local bike shop caught it when I inquired (and to show off my sweet Nireeka eBike :P ) and removed the burrs, seated perfectly now - turning is much easier, etc.
