    Hey guys!! Lots of great info on this forum. I'm a 2015 ICT owner ready to finally go 1x11!! It looks like many of you have converted to 1x11 using the wolf tooth 94mm BDC so you can retain the surly O.D. cranks. My question is...if you used just the standard 10mm chain ring bolts is your chain line optimum...any trouble shifting? Or did you purchase the QBP part no. CR8609 (spacer kit) and 16mm chain ring bolts that wolf tooth suggest on their site?

    Hey ryguy, what tires are you running in this picture and how much room between the tire and the Bluto? Thanks.

    i know from my ict/bluto/29+ setup that theres enough space to get the tip of your finger in between the tire and the arch dealy so something like a duro crux wont fit but all the "standard" 3 inch tires do fit....except in super muddy conditions...

    Dirt Wizards with plenty of room for what I ride (mostly dry/loose). Never measured or even looked that closely, but I try not to ride mud. The local trails are either loose granite that rides best wet (pictured) or get too nasty to ride and rut up when wet.

    Had to swap back to the fatties for (hopefully) the last snow of the season on Saturday. The singletrack dh was totally loose and drifted. Made for some interesting riding. Saw another guy on an ICT.

    Keeping with Canadian theme......
    I had the ICT out on the weekend in Kamloops and Merritt, BC.
    The weekend turned out to be quite wet due to flooding and we had to leave our campsite Saturday morning due to the creek close by turning into a raging river. Made for an interesting weekend!

    But I was happy with the big tires in the mud........
    Awesome riding!
    A easy wood structure.

    Swapped the DWs for some Chupacabras. Overall a much faster tire than the DW even though they give up some speed on the dh. Grip at the limit is noticeably less but they let go gradually and I had some fun(?) moments on a fast downhill yesterday where the DWs would have kept gripping. Weight and rolling speed more than made up for it though.

    Killer pic Ryan!

    I also have some Chupas on 29+ (Mulefut 50SL rims). Love 'em. They roll like hell and have a surprising amount of grip. Now to get a Mastodon on there

    About 2000 ft of near constant climbing to get to that lovely spot. My favorite local loop.

    +1 on the Mastodon. I'm just waiting for some early adopters to go first...

    i dunno if i can send it off to get that replaced or not,i dont see it listed as a part except as the whole upper assembly which is more or less like buying a new shock anyway...

    Yes, the the whole upper assembly would have to be replaced as the stanchions/crown are all once piece.

    fixed my scratched bluto problem...by buying a salsa bucksaw...got an amazing deal on a 2015 XO build...so the 'truck will go back to the stock fork and i guess i have a spare set of lowers and internals...the new mechanic took one look and said "that's bad"...and apparently parts and service and shipping would be more than a new shock!

    we got out early today...hiding from the heat now...

    yup,support your local bike shop! getting a 5000 dollar bike for 2100 bux!

    which,if my math is correct means i have a $2900 budget for upgrades and bling!

    lol,just kidding...sort of...i will probably get a set of 27.5x3 wheels for it,and the carbon handlebars are getting swapped for alloy right away...i dont think i would break them while riding...ham-fisting in the shop is another matter though...and i will get a regular seatpost for it since im pretty sure its the same size as the ICT and at some point it seems like all dropper post fail or need service at some point...although i suppose it would be no great burden to have 1 of now 7 bikes out of commision,it bugs me when they arent all running perfectly...

    but i bet when it comes down to good old fashioned "lets go ride someplace really dumb" that the ICT will still be the fat choice...

    Nice hamsterspam!
    I have looked at Salsa Bucksaw.......

    How is the fit for you?
    I believe you ride a XXL ICT if my memory serves me correctly??
    How does the ICT compare to the Bucksaw geometry wise?
    Just wondering......if I am wrong then ignore this.

    New to the site, thanks for adding me! Wanted to say hello. Have a new ICT and completely enjoying the ride. Purchased the bike in the winter and had a blast riding in the snow. Now having even more fun riding on the trails.

    Sold my old hardtail, so I decided to make a fat free Ice Cream Truck. 35mm Spank Oozy 395 Trail rims on Onyx Racing hubs, built by Hubsessed Cycle Works. The Minion 29x2.4 wide trail are huge on these 35mm rims. The 29/27.5+ Yari RC boost fork gives me room for 29x3 if I ever want to go that way.

    That's the plan, quick swap back to the ICT fork and fat wheelset and I'm ready for snow. I wanted it to be a quiver killer sort of hardtail, trail 29er/plus bike/fat, I'm really happy with how it turned out.

    Just got back from a trip out to Steamboat Springs and I took the ICT with 29+. My midwestern lungs took a couple days to adjust; and it's no featherweight going up, but boy can it descend. It just plows through rock gardens. All you have to do is get back and let it go, and I was surprised how good it felt in the air with the big wheels. I was able to keep up with my riding buddies on their full suspension bikes through everything and was usually pushing the pace going down.

    The only downside I found is that I have some bruises on my inner calves from the big fat seat stays and obviously it would be nice to have more front end stiffness than afforded by the Bluto. But there were only a couple incidents where the fork seemed overwhelmed and it saved my bacon on one poorly executed launch.

    I should have taken more pics on the mountain, but I was having too much fun to stop for photos. Here's one before we loaded up to head home.

    I meant all tire sizes, but I see no reason why it wouldn't fit on the ICT.

    Really liking the Jumbo Jims for summer riding. Certainly more lively than the Minion FBF/FBR combo
