    It's funny you mention the Jeep. I just watched it leave my driveway this morning. I sold it. Having sellers remorse a little.

    If I get another one it will be older. The buyer has big plans that I am very excited about. It will take on a new role at a scenario based shooting range. Getting paint and a class three belt fed weapon mounted on the roll cage. Hopefully pics later. Anyway........Ice Cream!

    My new ride. First fat bike. Really enjoying it. Well except for the flat tire I got on my first ride. 1.5” thorn right through the center tread block right into the tube. Did not even notice until I got back home. Time to go tubeless maybe?

    Did you go split tube? Tape? Any tips for the rim tire combo? Anything you wish you would have known before you started?

    Replaced the handlebar stem with a slightly longer one to correct a wrist angle to a straight er grab. Will test tomorrow.

    I run Bud and Lou on Clownshoes. I went split tube. I made rim strips out of camo Gorilla Tape. I used a 24" Q Tube. It set up easily and has been trouble free. I had to disassemble the wheel last night because I toasted the rear hub. When I removed the tire, I saw how well it was seated and I had to fight it to get the bead broken.
    So, even though I burp a little air here and there and leak a little sealant, I don't think I ever have to worry about losing my seal completely.

    Just in case anyone was wondering about bikepacking capabilities. My Ice Cream truck performed awesome.

    Test-rode an ICT along side a Rocky Mountain Blizzard for comparison. Here are my impressions (from riding around the street...)

    -The ICT has an amazing presence. Between the tires/rims and the amazing paint it just stands out compared to the stealthy all-black blizzard. If you want attention the ICT is for you.

    -ICT feels slacker/more stable than the Blizzard even though they share the same listed head tube angle. It could be due to the Blizzard's sag setting on the Bluto but it made the Blizzard feel more like an XC bike. Also the Blizzard felt a bit more compact in the cockpit area.

    -The ICT and the Blizzard feel about the same weight when you pick them up but the Blizzard feels a little quicker when riding. Probably down to the lighter wheels/tire combo.

    -Both bikes have great brakes.

    Both bikes being the same price makes for a hard decision. If you've got to have a Bluto the Blizzard is an excellent value proposition. The ICT definitely has an x-factor about it, though. Basically, I've got a horrible case of analysis paralysis and can't pull the trigger on anything.

    I like them a lot. Maybe 2mm narrower as far as i can tell. They hook up with everything great with noticeably less rolling resistance. They have seen lita of wet leaves, roots and rocks and so far so good. Split tube tubless was a breeze too

    How many of you are riding ICT on 1x10/11 setup? What crancks are you using? What are the crancks that can be used (besides Surlys own) on ICT?

    Thanks!

    I had to resort to my ICT for commuting today. 0 degrees F with lots of new snow. It did great, but it sure took a long time to get to work! I appreciated the sweet thermos that the Surly guys gave me at Buffalo Creek last weekend.

    Yes, it's custom as in it showed up with Darryls, thumb shifters and BB7's. We did Clownshoes, SLX brakes and SLX shifters.

    It has a Surly OD crankset. Interesting thing... The rear thru axle is bolt on.

    So I am going to pull the trigger and order an ice cream truck in the next few days. But the one last thing I can’t make up my mind on is size. I am 5’11’’ with average arm length and inseam for my height. The only one in the area I have been able to sit on is a large and it just felt too big. Even the geo numbers are big when compared to other manufactures sizing.

    Should I go large or med? The large I rode had the stock 80mm stem. I like to run short 50-60mm stems so that will help reduce the cockpit size a decent amount.

    Fit is always personal but I'm an average 5'10/5'11 and felt pretty good on a medium on my test ride.

    thanks, even tho the med is an 18" due to its long top tube i think i am going to go with that. Hell its got a longer top tube than some large's from other manufactures.

    On a side note any smaller riders out there? I am am looking for a advice for a female rider whos 5'5". Should she go S or XS?

    I'm 5'11'', 195lbs and the dealer at the local shop suggested a med for me. They don't actually stock Surly though so can't get in the saddle to test one out. Nice to come here for more feedback.

    I see a lot of mentions of "pulling the trigger" on an ICT. Here's a recent photo of my buddy's, dressed up for elk season.

    Thanks for the input guys. I ended up calling Surly. Eric at Surly was super helpful. He basically said to by the top tube measurements because the frame has a low top tube and a large looks deceivingly small. He said deff go with a med so I did. Allready on its way from qbp to my lbs. Can't wait.

    Good call. You are going to dig it. I am 6’3” 34” inseam and the large fits perfect for me. I think you are going to be very happy with the Med. Fingers crossed for fast shipping.

    Yup, I have faith in the guys at Surly. Temps have dropped up here in Maine to where I don't feel safe on the icy trails on my 29er. I have a pair of the Dillinger 5's comming with it so I should be good to rip when the real winter weather hits. This is my first year with a fatbike. I am pumped to stay riding in the woods the entire year. Sure there are lighter and more fancy fatbikes but I think this ice cream truck will be a blast.

    Has anyone tried if Sram X9 cranks (spiderles, bb30 direct mount chainring) would fit to ICT?

    Nope, it won't work. I think raceface makes some cranks if you want spiderless

    Just a heads up for those of you building a frame. Shimano rear der. is the only option at this time using the 197 thru axle. Sram will work with the QR dropouts as I have done. Eric at Surly says a chip will be available next year to run Sram with the thru axle.

    Loving My Ice Cream Truck...My first ride was Sunday morning and did a nice 25 mile spin with it. The bike is heavy and not the most agile bike I have ever ridden. The stability of the ride is unreal. It's like nothing i've ever ridden before (first fatty)! Took my ICT out for 10 miles yesterday and I can't wait to get back out there today. I live in desert area and I can now go places where my 29er struggled. I'm drinking the Fatty Koolaid now...happy trails everyone
