    did you check/tighten your rear qr/thru axle? front? chainring bolts greased/tightened?

    I've had my ICT for a few weeks now but have only had 3 good rides on it. The weather has been unseasonably wet (getting colder so hopefully the trails will freeze).

    Being 5' 7" (short inseam, long torso) I debated on whether or not to get a size Small or Medium as well. Almost pulled the trigger on a Medium after having ridden one. Being between sizes I usually go with the general rule of thumb of going to the next size larger.
    However, after over-analyzing the numbers of both sizes, the size Small matched up almost identical to my 17" Turner 5 Spot.

    Got the Small and I'm glad I did. I swapped out the tiny 50mm stem and the 11° swept back Salsa Salt Flat 2 bar for a 100mm stem and riser bar with a 6° sweep (anybody need a brand new Salsa bar?) and the bike feels great!

    Here's a pic from from one of the rides (I posted it on in the general fat bike riding thread as well).

    You need some snowshoes to pack down that snow.

    Enjoy the new bike.
    Safe riding,

    So I ordered a replacement 36t Surly ring, and just thought I'd take it easy until Wolf Tooth releases their new chainrings. Second ride out, I nailed a rock and lost a tooth off the new $65 chainring.

    I'm just gonna run it, and shift super carefully until I can replace it with the WT ring.

    The bike is fun, but the crank/chainring situation is frustrating.

    Blackspire makes rings that will fit the OD cranks as well. Replaced the 36t Surly with a 34t. Works great!

    There's a thread on the forum about using a 94 bcd raceface bash ring on the Surly OD crank. I made one fit my Pug ops. You can pick up the bash guard for pretty cheap on close-out as no one wants them. Link to thread below.

    if they won't make it, find a way....

    I used a chainring bolt set from my SLX 665 double and bash (they are much longer than standard) and some 2mm thick chainring spacers purchased from ebay. Works well.

    EDIT: forgot to add that you need a 34t chainring. I used a middleburn hard anodized one.

    Since the OD 36 is positioned as an outer ring, is it the BS 5 bolt middle ring that you refer. Thanks

    It is a medium. The bike is now set up tubeless with ghetto 1x10(removed fd and large chainring), also added carbon bars and a shorter stem. Fun bike.

    First commute on my ICT Ops yesterday. Lucky me, we got a few inches of fresh powder during the day.

    The ride in against 20+mph wind had me questioning the wisdom of the whole thing, but riding back home over and through the drifts erased all doubts.

    RF Turbine cranks with 32T NW
    XT shifter and rear derailleur

    I think I read that you can do it with a couple extra spacers. Not sure where in here that I read it but someone did do that setup.

    You can use any BB92 bottom bracket. You will not be able to find one with the correct length plastic sleeve that goes inside the shell so any of them work. You will also need to have your LBS order you a spacer kit for the 190mm spindle. I believe the part number is F10014 from race face. You will not be able to use a 170mm spindle. We tried it and it's way too short to clear the chain stays.

    Sweet. I already have a 190mm cinch crankset and I saw on universal cycles website that race face is about to release a sleeve to fit an ICT. Just wanted to know about which cups I needed.

    Maiden voyage of the ICT. Went to the park where trails were beautiful. Had a great time on the single track. Handles like a dream. So precise at slow speeds. You could really pick your path easily and stay on track.

    You ordert a small -right? How tall are you, I'm still trying to find the right size - it's still a theoretical question because of budget...

    Yes, I went with the small. Perfect size for me. 5'8.5". I wouldn't want the TT any longer or closer to my crotch.

    Do all the small frames have the "plate" behind the seatpost tube?

    Feel like I've seen some with and some without.

    ICT tested in Rovaniemi 150

    Surly ICT thread-11001906_807385369338953_1348519454048248367_n.jpg

    A couple of weeks ago I participated in the Rovaniemi 150 in Finland. Despite the relatively warm circumstances (around freezing point) I had a blast with the ICT fully loaded. Bike did everything right. Had replaced the stock wheels with XMIPlay carbon rims & Hope Fatsno hubs, running Bud & Lou tubeless. Even though I lost air from the rear if I went below 5 PSI (so I sticked to 5) I was truly amazed at what I could ride with it given my size (6ft7" & 254 lbs + bike & gear weighing in at around 77 lbs). Since it was my first ever snow race I made all the mistakes in the book, especially with regards to carrying too much gear. Nevertheless I'm hooked to these events from now on. Will prepare for either the Roavve 300 (also in Finland) or one of the (for us Dutchies) endless list of fatbike events in the US. Love it!

    Right now it's sunshine all over here today:

    Im really close on pulling the trigger on an ICT. It will be the first "mountain bike" i own, it will accompany a Track bike and a CX. The Bikeshop is knocking a substantial amount off the original price. Thinking about upgrades already: Silver Seatpost, Stem & Bars, and going 1x10 (or 1x11). Have riders here upgraded the cassette with an E*thirteen or Wolf tooth 42 Cog? I read on their websites that you need a different cassette or be willing to cut some rivets in the 17t cog. For Sizing: im 192 cm (6'3) and im (probably) getting a large.

    That's correct. You'll need xt-cassette to replace the original slx-cassette. And yes, definitely a large one for you or maybe even XL.
