Been using them since February 2019, they're great.  I would recommend for sure.

my buddy little mike had them and bent the steer tube on them. Took them to London Bikes in Dallas and got them bent back to shape and welded in a steel tube to reinforce them.  He's primarily a spinner on front and back wheel so maybe the sheer force of landing a time machine tweaked them or something

Not good considering they cost $450

China made Ti Forks make me a bit nervous, especially after snapping China made Ti cranks. Since we're both a bit taller/bigger as Riders, Would you feel comfortable riding them?

Just ordered a ti crank spindle but that's as far as I'll go with ti for now...

Yes it seems there are different kinds of ti. I'm interested to see what's next with Viking Bmxband their ti products  as they are a growing company and Viki Gomez vouches for them.
