Strengths:    Good clean welds. Paint is strong and resistant. Nice little details. Good component build. Geometry is dialed for a comfortable and efficient snow bike.

Weaknesses:    Bike has a slight pull to one side due to the type of lacing of spokes on rear wheel. Doesn't affect braking but can be irritating. Think its off - set lacing so you can run a single speed. I thought the flat handle bar they chose for the bike was a poor choice and put on a bar with more rise and sweep. Why are we selling winter bikes, that most likely will be rode in salt without a chain guard - this should be standard ?

Bottom Line:   
Surly is not new to fat bikes and this is why I went with them. I heard, and it is true they have dialed in the perfect angles and build specs for a snow bike. Good build of components and reasonable price. I was expecting bike to be heavier than it was but it was quite reasonable for a snow bike. Climbs well on snow covered packed trails.
