I used a front rack on my suspension fork on my long time trip. For that purpose I had fixed a home made construction to my fork (view photo
). I used a front rack made by Zefal and fixed it with thread sticks which go around the fork. I never had any problems with it but I think in the end the suspension didn't really work very well anymore.
The other solution made by Tubus
is very good, too. The disadvantage of the "Swing" is that the weight is a bit too high plus it starts swinging when loaded up with heavy bags.
As for my next tour I will be using a normal non-suspension fork again to reduce my bike's weight.
