Thanks Kevin for the quick response, I will give it a try!
Since the fall may have tweaked something else you might want to realign the front wheel next, I believe the manual has instructions on how to do this. I would encourage you to use a torque wrench on all the pinch bolts, the spec. is not very tight (23 NM ?). Too tight may damage your fork tubes.
I don’t recommend this, but when this happens to me during a ride I will abuse my bike by whacking the front wheel against a post in the appropriate direction until things feel straighter. Unfortunately this method probably loosens things up and makes recurring alignment problems more likely.
Hope this helps!
