Does anyone have any experience with this Chinese made truss fork off of Ebay? I like the simple and stout look but always somewhat skeptical of fabricated parts from China. It’s intended for a motorized bike (Whizzer). Thanks

I have some limited experience with welded-in-place truss rod forks.
I have found that it may be difficult to place a thread cutting die on the steerer tube with the truss rod in the way.
For example, the eBay item looks to require some cut-to-fit or other custom ordering, (have not looked at ad in a while).
The fork shown might not fit common 3-1/2" head tubes, without some work.
And it does look heavy.

Thanks, good point on having to difficulty trying to recut the steer tube with the truss in the way. Tube is 7" long with maybe 11/2" to 2" of threads. Should be OK in a CWC frame with some cutting. Thanks
