Is my bike too big for this trainer?

I just put my Trek Checkpoint on an Elite Qubo Digital Smart B+. (Don’t judge me, it’s permanently wintry-mix-ing outside.) Turns out the dropouts with the thru-axle adapter are much wider than my other bike, and I’ve ended up with this:

The wheel is not leaning, it’s straight up and down, but it definitely lands on the roller off-center. You can roughly make out the darker ring to the left where my other bike made contact. Anybody else have a setup that looks like this?

None of my bikes sit dead centre and all been fine.

I have 2 road bikes and an MTB that I have used on my trainer. Dropout widths differ and the MTB has boost. As only one side of the trainer clamp adjusts the wheels sit in varying places.

Does it work? If so, it fits!

When I used a wheel on trainer all of my bikes fit differently. Didn’t think much of it.

The H3 is so quiet it’s hard to think about using something else. However, I miss my Fluid trainer. It allowed me to overwork and blow up a lot easier than erg mode. I digress.

I’d say if it’s not Impacting the workout it’s perfect.
