Has anyone tried putting a mountain-bike style suspension fork on a beach cruiser? What kinds of difficulties did you encounter?
Thanks man,i'm keeping a lookout for reasonable suspension forks with 1" threaded steertubes(in a workable length) but they only come with new bikes & second hand forks by themselves are rare.Back when I rescued Rusty (& friends), from that yard sale...I put on a suspension fork, with a 1" threaded steertube, from a Next bike.
Nothing fancy or expensive. but I thought it looked kinda cool.
the fork lasted a few years, but finally wore out.
If you don't have to have the Best...there are lots of suspension forks, with threaded steertubes.
& I never seem to have a shortage of donor bikes.
Pedal power only
