I may be swapping my motor over to a Kona beach cruiser and I was thinking about putting a springer front end on it but I'm wondering if they actually absorb much shock or if they're just for looks. The rigid bike that I've been riding is a bit harsh so I was thinking about going to a bike with some sort of suspension. A beach cruiser with a mountain bike fork would look kind of funny so I thought a springer would look cool and could soften the bumps out a bit. It looks like the springers don't have any dampening so do you just bounce around a bunch? Will it ride any better than a rigid fork?
anybody know where to find a suspension fork for a 29'er mtb with a 120mm headtube at a decent price. been lookin for a couple days and the low ended price range is like 300-400. the bike its self didn't cost that much.
