There have been many bikes on my radar.. but we were not going to get any this year. I had purchased the Krampus about a year ago.. and am really loving it. I did recently get one for my wife. Her's will be keep the flat bars vs the drops. While loving the drop bars on mine, I have been intrigued with the flat bar version.. really wanted one.
I am not sure what Surly is doing bike wise.. they are running much of their inventory down.. and marking stuff down. They had no Krampus in my size. I have lusted after their Ice Cream Truck since it came out. They were 25% off and I had worked extra at work soooooo….
The Ice Cream Truck is a super fat bike like the Moonlander. 4.8 inch tires on 100mm wide rims. The ICT is not an asymmetrical bike like the Moony and Pugs. It has a much stiffer frame and more modern trail bike geometry. It has through axles, and has suspension compatible geometry. I could also put 29er + wheels like the Krampus. Although I would have to build a new set. for the ICT has much wider hubs than the Krampus.
I just got it built today… and I went for it's first ride this afternoon. It's a pretty sweet bike… I still have a few things to adjust.. fit wise and such. It is yet to be determined if I will keep all 3 fat bikes or not.
