Hi,

I've just stumbled upon these:

https://www.ebay.com/itm/Kashima-Top-Li ... Sw1DtXEGZP

Any experience about them? Are those forks worth a try? Looks an unknown brand to me.

With a carbon/alloy crown it looks a bit too delicate for my 15.5 stone butterfly body anyway...

cheers,
Endre

probably crap - I dont even rate fox or Rock shox ( for the same design/travel fork) so there is little chance that will any good

Funny, Kashima is the coat that use Fox.

It is not light weight and it is not a good fork. Thy with a 2000-2006 SID, weight 1340gr more less and works fine. Lower legs are magnesium covered with that stuff they cal carbon "fibbre"
