Details

The Ice Cream Truck goes where most other bikes can’t. Snow, rocks, mud, sand — you name it, and chances are, someone has ridden it on an Ice Cream Truck. Don’t let that terrain-crawling ability fool you into thinking the Ice Cream Truck is slow and sluggish, though. A long top tube (best paired with a short stem) and short stays make it trail-approved and ready to rip. And with 4.8” tires on 100mm rims, “trail” is relative. Show a snowman who’s boss, ride through a sand castle — all on the perfect get-away vehicle. Or you can stick to riding terrain that won’t ruin a child’s day.

It all starts with Surly's proprietary ED-coated 4130 CroMoly steel. ED coating provides a solid foundation for paint externally while adding a layer of corrosion protection internally. A 132mm-wide PressFit 41 bottom bracket allowed Surly to play with the stays a bit more and move them a little further out, creating a much stiffer rear end. The Ice Cream Truck comes with 197mm thru-axle chips and a 2x10 speed Shimano drivetrain. The SRAM Level T brakes offer exceptional modulation in all conditions and all temperatures. If you feel like swapping out the included suspension-corrected, straight blade fork, you’ll have plenty of options thanks to the Ice Cream Truck’s 44mm headtube.

In a world full of uncertainties, there’s one thing you can count on: Ice Cream Truck will really take you places. At least when it comes to riding a bike — it can’t do much to help you fix the rest of your life.

    Comments:

    OK, I own Trailhead so I can ride ANY Fat Bike. I choose the Ice Cream Truck. Yes, I love this bike so much I actually bought one of these for myself. the handling, steering, confidence inspiring wheels. it's the perfect fat bike. I use my Ice Cream Truck to exlore Minnesota. Frozen lakes and ponds in the winter, gravel roads and forests in the summer.
