As you may know, there's been some hype about Surly's new fat bike. There's been a lot of hype about fat bikes in general, and you may or may not already have your opinion about them. If you already know what you're looking at, and are of the opinion that you'd like to look at one in the steely flesh, well now you can come to the shop and do just that. As of now, we have Ice Cream Truck Ops (Ops-es?) in stock, and the even slightly more rad Ice Cream Trucks will be showing up tomorrow, Tuesday, September 30th.
If you're unfamiliar with fat bikes, there are 10,000 websites on the internet devoted to them, and you can surly find more information about them than you'd ever care to read. Instead of trolling the internet, though, you should really just ride one. We'll have demos available, so you'll be able to try this thing out on the trails. Then you can form your very own personal opinion about fat bikes, which will be more valuable to you than the opinions of 10,000 others.
If you want to know why Surly made another fat bike, here's a pretty good explanatory video.
If you're wondering if you should buy a fat bike, Surly has a pretty good blog post about that very thing here.

Yes, the Ice Cream Truck is on the way. Grab a napkin and wipe the drool off your chin.
