Fork for Rock Lobster

So I bought a Rock Lobster frame on ebay today and it needs a fork. The frame is made of Columbus steel tubing and is a single speed. The steer tube is 1 inch. I would like to keep the cost of the fork under $100.

So far I've narrowed it down to the Surly Cross Fork because it gives me the option to run a fairly large tire up front and the Nashbar Carbon Cross Fork because its a little lighter. Which would you guys recommend? Another option I've overlooked? Threaded or threadless isn't a problem.

Thanks
