They had to be cracked befor you bought them think I would go talk to the guy you bought them from . I bought mine brand new came off an a outlaw E bike I am going to the garage right now to check mine out I put a lot of trail use on mine.
I, like you, have been riding on this fork for hundreds of New York city (huge potholes) miles, I started last fall with a NEW 680DH fork on my build, and I have also never top/bottomed out, and I ride very fast too (top speed was 61mph according to my CA)...In fact, IMO the faster you ride the better the shock works and feels, but is perfectly fine at 25 and 10mph too.
Everyone here that criticized the shock has no experience of this model, rather they have pat experiences with way older and much cheaper zoom forks. I agree it's not top or even middle of the range for bikes as it's heavy, but for an Ebike it seems to work great.
The only guy to actually buy one to test one found problems... DUH!! that was IMO totally ridiculous to even think a USED cheapo fork, that's been abused and all but discarded by it's original owner in that condition, (or more accurately, sold to some idiot online
) since it was cheap to start with. If he paid more than $25 I'd be surprised! Perhaps the owner caused the damage and therefore sold em?
Whatever the case, It's interesting that those who did buy em new, were careful to follow the install spec guide, think they work well, or don't seem to hate em quite as much as people that have never even owned OR tried them.
They also seem to have an inverted model DH1100 but don't come with shoulder mudguards for the stanchions like the DNM USD 8 model, so I'm not too sure about em plus they're a lil heavier too.
If anyone has them I'd be interested in knowing how they perform.
