Why would you want to lock the front fork? I want to sell my bike (Terpfan??) and get one WITH forks so I can ride a bit smoother. 15 minutes on the C&O towpath and my head is pounding from the vibrations. Probably a result of my concussion history but in my case I'd like to dampen the vibrations on rough surfaces. My bike's fine on pavement or soft earth.
Could be interested depending on $$$. Considering my ample girth, will it hold up to the test of fat? Also, it's hilly and a lot of rough black top in my hood.
