    I wouldn't call ML "old tech". Just a bike with a different purpose. Still a great ride.
    Other than being a 40+ pound tank i love it. I don't think the Ict will do anything other then give me a bit of versatility in the fork/rim dept.

    My riding style has changed and I'm doing way less agressive trails. I was looking to build up another set of wheels to trim off some excess weight. Thinking of Mulefut rims and some new hubs. Going tubeless with some 4.0 Jumbo Jims. I figure this should help keep my speed up on the gravel road type trails i ride most of the time.

    I'd think going ICT or any other bike is a mistake, then. ICT still has the same Clown Shoe wheels. You won't gain much or any performance, unless you change out the wheels. It's a fine bike, but definitely not worth the $ in the lateral move. Change the wheels to something lighter. Much better bang for buck.

    "Lateral move" that sums it all up and puts it into perspective. Thanks.

    I use my Moonlander as a snow bike. I think the steep geo of the Moonlander is great for snow, especially when doing slow-style climbing where balance and stability are crucial. Getting a slacked-out bike would make no sense for me. Would just make the wheel wander more on the climbs. The ICT is a great bike though. If you plan to use it year round might not be a bad option.

    It is a Revelate frame bag designed for Pugsley and Moonlander. I don't have any close-up pics right now but I can say holds a lot of things. I can even stuff clothing in there when I want to layer-down.
    I like to keep my center of gravity low when I snow bike and keep things off my back because sweating + wind = no fun.
    They are kind of expensive (~$175) but very well-made with large zipper teeth that are not break-prone. I bought mine used from a buddy so I got lucky as far as cost goes.

    Kris, that's the point of a Surly! They are heavy, yes, they are tough as a dump truck and will be in service for many years longer than a weight weenie special.

    Some new parts for my Moonie. 4.0 JJ lite skin tires and a new Revelate seat bag. The tires make a huge difference in how the bike rolls. It sits at 37lbs as pictured. I have some Sun Mule fat rims waiting for hubs also.

    No idea why my pic is like this.
