well-----you might have some problems finding a 700c suspension fork. You could just outfit a mtn bike with slicks...or...air down your tires for the "suspension"

I don't think you need that much bike. 230 lbs. isn't that heavy. I think a good quality, non-lightweight steel frame and fork with 28C tires would be plenty.

If you aren't going to run full size 29er tires (i.e. 2.1" knobbies), I'd look into the possibility of running a 700C disc wheel with road tires in a 26" MTB fork.
