I bought it from AliExpress.

Yes, I do have a personal experience with Bolany.

Honestly for the price, the quality is impressive.
It is much better and whole a lot lighter than the spring fork (SR Suntour NEX) I had.

The good:
The Bolany fork is light and absorbs shock very well. I'm very happy with the performance, great price. Wish they had thru axle option for straight tube bikes.

The bad.
I don't know if it's bad, since rigidity does not equal strength, but I noticed that it does flex during hard braking, but I noticed this with other fork and even original rigid fork I had, so I think it's normal.
The other thing is that, every once in a while, I have to tighten nuts and bolts on top of fork tube (where adjustment and air valve are), after a while, they become loose, it's not bad and probably a normal thing since I do ride on rough surface sometimes.

The Bolany fork is very similar to other forks sold on AliExpress, probably all come from the same manufacture.

thanks for the info timpo

BTfl i dont think just any 26 inch fork will fit, the top on the step thrus is long and it has to meet certain dimensions

will see if i can find the specs and post them
