It sounds like bikes from the 90s by Schwinn and Cannondale. The '98 SchwinnCircuit had a RockShox Ruby fork.
is this what you mean?
I was thinking more of a drop-bar version of bike like Kalkhoff Endeavour Pro. BTW today on 50mm-tire Disc Trucker in the rain I ran over a small invisible pothole & wow, one hand almost came off the handlebar. Susp fork would have absorbed that w/o panic. Susp fork can cruise faster over bumpier sections & is esp safer IMO on descents where roads/paths are often the roughest.
