Product description

The Ice Cream Truck has the ability to float over pretty much anything you'll find out there be it snow, rocks, mud, sand, or rocky mud. But unlike our other, more terrain crawling fat bike models, the Ice Cream Truck's geometry is trail approved and ready to rip.

The Ice Cream Truck is made out of our own proprietary 4130 CroMoly steel and is ED coated. ED coating is a process that leaves a coating that externally gives a solid foundation for paint while also giving an added layer of corrosion protection internally, however, we still recommend an additional treatment such as Frame Saver or Boeshield. Ice Cream Truck begins to differ from all of our other fat bike models from there.

The Ice Cream Truck frame is symmetrically spaced at 190mm. It features our MDS dropout system so you have the option of running a 197mm thru-axle, 190mm geared or a single speed rear end. It also features a 132mm wide PressFit 41 bottom bracket. Giving the Ice Cream Truck a PF41 bottom bracket allowed us to move the stays out and create a much stiffer rear end. The frame is spec'd with a 44mm headtube to give you options in the fork department and comes with a suspension corrected straight blade fork with dropouts spaced at 150mm with a 15mm thru-axle.

When we designed the Ice Cream Truck we borrowed elements from the Krampus and Instigator geometries to make this bike feel frisky and limber. The complete build rounds out this bike as an aggressive trail bomber. And with 4.8" tires on 100mm rims you have the option of going through instead of around anything in your path.

Just do it.

The Surly Ice Cream Truck is not for those who fret over a couple of grams. It's not for those who want to go fast and, it's not for those who want to get from A to B without getting odd looks and being questioned by complete strangers. If however, you just ride for fun, want to go where a "normal" bike wouldn't be able to and, you don't mind the curiosity of strangers, then you'll love this bike. Yes, it is heavy. No, it's not going to win any road races but, it will make you feel like a kid again and put a dirty great grin on your face. It's fun! It's the bicycle equivalent of owning a Land Rover: you might be a bit slow on the road but hey, you don't need roads. You just need a good hearty breakfast and a sense of adventure!
