Springer style fork using dampened frame shock?
I just got a BikeE (my first recumbent). It's a nice bike, but I'd like to try swapping out the front fork/wheel. Suspension would be nice, as would a bigger front wheel (the bike has 16" front, 20" rear), but I don't want to raise the front end any more than I absolutely have to (to get a bigger front wheel). A springer style fork seems like it may be a good idea. The steering is a little twitchy to start with, so I don't think that will be a problem. The only issue I've had making a sharp turn with this bike was on the second ride when I realized the pedal can reach the front wheel.
I did a little reading/Googling to find out about 20" suspension forks, and found complaints about springer forks causing sluggish steering (which I don't think will be an issue for this project, but feel free to tell me I'm wrong) and about the suspension being undampened. So I'm wandering, would there be any issue with using a dampened frame shock for a springer style fork?
