Bike Lust… Surly ICT.

Once again, I have found myself trying to establish the perfect bicycle stable. Drop bar 29er? Check. Fast, adventure ready road bike? Check. Fat bike? Nope.

I am back on a mission to put a fat bike back in my stable, and this go round I feel that the Surly Ice Cream Truck is the one to fill the gap. The former Pugsley that I had was cool, but geometry wise it just did not feel right. Tooling around in the woods was perfect, but once you put on some gas the bike felt off. From the looks of things, and also reviews, the ICT has a better rider position for faster than Pugsley style riding. That, paired with, I didn’t give fat bikes enough time to really rule them out. Looking back, I really just rode the Pugsley on single track, not really opening the bike up to exploration, which should’ve been a given.

Time to make up for that…
