If you can fit 2.3" tires on a LHT, you're good to go. It'll be a little rough here and there, but not often enough to justify a whole new bike if you've already got one you like.
In lieu of suspension, use the lowest tire pressure you can get away with. If you've got 29x2.3" tires, that's probably about 25 PSI.
