    Ok so I have the MoonDog and it is so much fun. I have noticed that the ride is far from comfortable. Has anyone put a suspension fork on a Moondog? I was looking into 1in threaded suspension forks and found that they are very hard to find. I did happen to stumble across one at http://nycbikes.com/item.php?item_id=479 & http://nycbikes.com/item.php?item_id=477
    Does anyone think this will work &if it does will my ride be any smoother. I plan on buying a suspension seatpost too. Any thoughts?

    The only thing that might keep it from working is the length of the steerer (142mm) subtract the stack height of the headset (approx 35mm) leaves only 107mm which is 4 & 1/8 in approx. How long is the headtube of the MoonDog? I'm thinking that it is longer than 4 & 1/8 in. If it is the fork won't work.
    If it turns out that the sterrer is long enough to fit your bike you want the SR/Suntour Fork. The RST fork shown is for 700c hybrid bikes not 26 in. MTB or cruiser.
