I bought this to use on an electric cargo bike, and it's exceeded my expectations. It made a huge improvement in compliance and handling over the cheap stock fork, and everything feels top-quality. Very responsive adjustments and very refined damping feel; it simply eats curbs and drops, and the stiffness is really noticeable and confidence-inspiring at high speed (up to 70 km/h so far) compared to the low-grade fork it replaced. Awesome bottom-out control too.
It's so nice to have a high-quality suspension option in this wheel size.
I think its goofy to give the fork a negative review because YOU didn't understand what your buying. Of course you cant return after cutting the steerer tube lmfao Why would you even cut it if you were unsure. It doesn't matter if its a junior fork or a full sized fork your asking it to do something that most cannot. Maybe theres one out there that can but that's surely not common practice. If you knew or even thought you would have to adjust to accommodate geometry of negative headtube angles etc than why wouldn't you order the bigger fork? Thats exactly why they offer them with more travel. To accommodate various riders needs. I couldnt help but laugh reading your review because it seems like your upset with them because you bought the wrong fork expecting it to do something that no fork can do. Then got upset because you couldnt return it after cutting the steerer tube, In pretty sure no company would be down for that. Sorry it worked out that way for you. For us the fork is the Dream!! Much better than I thought it would be. little mans ripping
Thanks for your review! #bigdog #junit #manitou
