Default Suspension fork for cruiser?

I have one build with one-

It works really well- 3 years plus with no problems- it adds a bit of weight compared to the stock tubular fork- Really feel a bit more control over bumps

Here's one I see listed on ebay- Not bad for $28 shipped

I have a 27 inch wheel in mine- a 700C wheel would fit even better even though it's listed for 26"- a fairly normal reach- not too short- will work with a brake mounted in the center hole, if you aren't using a 26" wheel and the cantilevers.

the same seller has several in different colors- make sure you get a one inch thread fork if you have a cruiser, and measure the steer tube carefully- he has two lengths in stock now. You can cut down a longer steer tube if there's enough thread.
