I'm building an electric bike using a rather powerful 2000watt hub engine and seeking a fork that will function well (ie - not break!), provide comfort w/ suspension, and appeal to my aesthetic. Any suggestions or experiences with forks on more powerful hub motors?

I'm specifically looking for a minimalist triple clamp style suspension fork along the lines of what pedicabs have (but w/ suspension)? http://wheelgoods.com/pro325321.html is along the lines of what I'm seeking - but has no suspension and I prefer a triangular tube arrangement... Ideas/suggestions for sourcing?

For that much power, your going to need a custom fork built. Especially if you want suspension on it. Will be similar to the front end of a dirt bike or motor bike.
