Any time on the snow with it? I'll be north of Edmonton and want something I can ride in the winter, but 4" tires seem a little thin for a big guy like me. Granted if it's hard packed it might be perfect.
ict seems a lot more versatile than the chromag. you can run bigger tires for more float in the winter (i've heard the bike handles better for trail riding with 4" tires), and it's got braze on's for anything else you'd want to stick on it for back country touring or longer rides
geometry between the two bikes is pretty similar, but the chromag will be a fair bit lighter. worth noting that, more or less, 26" fat = 27.5+ = 29" tires, making either bike a hella versatile platform if that's of interest.
