Default Re: Suspension Fork on Cruiser

I've been exploring the same idea and here's what I've discovered by asking.

Older, earlier high end mountain bikes with suspension forks used a 1" steerer. Not so on the new generation. They've all gone to 1 1/8". I was told to check out thrift stores, used bike places and garage sales for an older MTB. The stem length is also important.
I was told early Rock Shock (not sure of the spelling) forks are 1" but they're getting hard to find.
Keep us informed. I'm sure there are quite a few cruiser owners who'd like to add a little softness to their rides. The springers just don't seem to offer the same degree of shock absorbing I've felt on a suspension fork.
