Has anyone fitted a Faiv ( https://faiv.de/) front rack to their Delite or other R&M bike? My bike is a 2018 Delite GX Rohloff with Aion forks. If so are they easy to fit and what are they like in general? Thanks.

Yes, I have fitted one to my Supercharger GX with AION forks. I didn't do the fitting, but it fits and works just fine - after 15,000 km it is still perfectly ok - though the load does sit a little high up and takes some getting used to. I carry only maybe 8-10 kg max total in the two Ortleib panniers.

That is true. FAIV explicitly stated the buyer bears responsibility for customs clearance, though also said they provide the necessary customs declaration forms for me to fill out, and that they've had no issues or additional duties on similar deliveries.
