Guess I should put this here too.

Pretty much as I hoped/expected.

Strawberry ride report, finally.

1mi pre-ride around the block to shakedown, adjust seat and bars, then measly 10.7mi which is about as far as I go on a ride from home when just going for a ride.

Rides like a dream, smooth on smooth, very nice on rough and crappy, good on hard pack/turf/dirt single track (only about a mile and very little at speed).

The fork is very compliant, soaks up a lot of static and nonsense while tracking rock solid, excellent feel.

Sorry, no pics, I was concerned about rain that was forecast and looked likely but still not yet, should have stayed out.

Again, fantastic work from Dave with Andy's parts, piece's, history, tradition and blessing.

And the seat clamp held just fine so far.
