Columbus Muscle fork....semi clydesdale?

Any heavier riders out there riding the Columbus Muscle Fork? I'm in the 180 lb range and am looking at one. Wondering how the flex, ride and deflection is. It' s in the same component weight range as other pretty solid contenders, like the ouzo pro and the alpha q. Just wondering how it stands up.

I had a 1" Muscle on a steel bike, and found it to be very comfortable, but probably a little too flexy.
I put it on one of my stiff alu bikes which was a much better match.
