the leader track fork

I know three things

1. Leader is making cheap stuff
2. This fork is perfect rake wise for me
3. leader gets bashed quite a bit

In any case, I am trying to build a cheap but nice bike, and I need a fork.

What's the worst that could happen??

Well I guess worst comes to worst the steerer snaps at the crown at terminal velocity in a sprint.

I've actually got one of these forks and have given it some decent abuse this year. It's holding up just fine. It's aero and plenty stiff (though I'm not a heavy weight). It's not light, the walls of the steerer tube are nice and thick. I think it'll be pretty bomb proof.
