... pictures here on Strava...
The very nice pictures you took today are only visible for someone who follows you on Strava I guess.

Thanks Carbonazza, I had not realized that! Here they are. Yesterday was supposed to be a rest day, but with a Stache in my hands and such a wonderful (but still chilly) day I could not help to get out. Note that pictures are meant to be nice but don't reflect the technical difficulty of the ride. There are tough climbs and descents but I stopped to take pictures in the most open place, with nice view, which happens to be a flat non-technical section!
2 things I missed to mention: the dropper post is really good (just as good as my reverb, maybe just a bit slower). The seat stay are a bit wide, I had my legs bump into it multiple times.

... in a good fork now...

Did you settle on the model yet?
I will build a 496 for a friend soon. We took the rigid to start, and as a backup.
But I was wondering what I can put on it if he doesn't like the rigid.
