Sikk fat bike springer. Any experience with it?

lucked into some fatbike wheels and working on a frame. anyone have experience with this fat bike springer?

https://www.ebay.com/itm/CUSTOM-SPRI...EAAOSwL7VWqUfk

my main concern is side to side flexing. some cheaper springers flex side to side so bad you can't put a disc brake on them (amoung other problems). i figure with the weight of the wheels (aluminum, but off a walmart dolomite. kinda heavy), if they do flex, it will be even worse with these wheels. the fork has a caliper mount and the wheels have rotors so i want to use them.

thanks if anyone knows.

Damn, I hate you. Or more specifically, my wife will hate you once I order that. (I've got to blame someone.)

then buy two and i'll tell her "yeah phil said don't worry about what you thin..." wait. does she know where I live?


seriously, if you get one before me (I'm thinking sooner or later I will), please give a quick review/impression of it please.


also, while I was tying to find a review of them I found them for less, but I didn't pay attention to which website it was (can't find it for anything now). don't know what the shipping would add, but they were $36.

ordered and received one over the weekend. looks pretty sturdy but the bike it will go on isn't built yet to know how well it will really work. looking through the bike pile for a head tube to cut off, but don't have a bike I think of as "scrap" enough to do it. a real review will have to wait a while.
