Low riders for suspension forks with disc brakes

Postby GOHughes » 12 May 2015, 12:42pm

What are people's opinions as to the advisability of this? I need a bike with front suspension due to my painful tennis elbow, which is made worse by road shock. I am looking at the Cube Delhi XC which has a Suntour suspension fork with remote lock out and disc brakes. I would also like to fit low riders for distributing the weight when bringing the shopping home and for touring.

would bigger tyres help reduce the road shock to acceptable levels?
