    What bike are you putting the fork on? What fork dimensions does the frame specify?

    cheap ebay fork. cheap carbon isn't that much better than metal. which leader fork?

    it's not a bad fork but it's not that great. compare with fuji/forte/bikesdirect/nashbar.

    you could really screw you bike up if you don't get the proper fork offset. You didn't mention anything about that.

    "Fine" but - as cc stated - not much better than steel.

    yes, they all work the same, but you can get good quality full carbon forks for $60. id call the weight savings significant, possibly 700g.

    its tougher with integrated headsets because the fork crown diameter and shape need to be on point, but its still pretty easy on ebay. 45mm will look alright.

    I just received this fork. Won one on ebay for $40 from that the same seller. It's is cheap but I believe the quality is decent. I'll let you know how it feels when I complete my build this Sunday.

    I did some research and it looks like these forks were made by Orbea and came stock on some of their bikes a number of years ago.

    Sorry completely forgot to get back to you. The fork is mounted and been used for the past couple weeks. No problems and happy with the quality for the price
