Description: Framed Minnesota 2.0 Fat Bike Black/White

We're really excited to introduce the Minnesota 2.0, the new top-of-the line model in the Fat Bike series from Framed Bikes. It's a fully-featured Fat Bike that solves two problems that face people wanting to get a Fat Bike… high price and lack of versatility.

The Minnesota 2.0 Fat Bike is priced under $900 but it's not short on quality. The frameset is oversized 6160 alloy tubing. The drivetrain is SRAM commanding all 18 gears. Framed went with Avid BB5 brakes for reliable stopping power in all temperatures. It even comes stock with sealed alloy pedals w/removable pins. The rims are Framed Alloy Single Wall and drilled out for an excellent strength to weight ratio. The Minnesota 2.0 Fat Bike also comes stock with the Vee Rubber Mission 120TPI Lightweight Folding tires. The geometry on the Minnesota 2.0 has a shorter cockpit than the Minnesota 1.0 giving it a more trail and free ride feel.

Now let's talk versatility. Framed Bikes developed the Fattie Slims™ wheel set packages to maximize use of the Minnesota Fat Bike series. The additional wheel set options (Pat.Pending) allow switching from a "fat setup" to an even lighter, even faster "29 Fattie Slims™ wheel set" with no tools or mechanical skills. We're so excited about the design and versatility of this wheel set package that for a limited time, we're more or less ($99) giving away a Fattie Slims™ wheel set with every Minnesota 1.0 and 2.0.

  • "Reasonably Priced Fatbike"

    , Madison,WI
    Pros: Comfortable,Handles Well,Durable,Versatile, Cons: high standover, tires could have more aggresive tread

    GEOMETRY First off I'd like to give a couple missing specs standover (to center of toptube) 31 inches bottom bracket height 13 inches fork offset 4.5 cm (seems like the spec sheet has a typo) I found the bottom bracket to be a bit higher than I'm used to making me feel like I'm on the bike rather than in it when the seat is adjusted for optimal pedaling. It also makes it a little more of a hassle to mount the bike in deep snow. The flipside of course is increased clearance which I do appreciate. On a related note, I wish the standover was a bit lower to help make unplanned dismounts less hazardous especially when your feet might sink into the snow. Those looking for more standover might consider the motobocane boris, nashbar's fatbike, or the motobocane fantom. I do not consider the effective top tube to be short, in fact it is almost the same as my previous trek hardtail 18 inch frame. I think the weird thing is that the top tube doesn't get much larger for the larger sizes. The 16 inch frame has a LOT of mechanical trail compared to other fatbikes (larger frames will be different since they have a steeper headtube angle). My fork having more offset than listed in the spec sheet makes this less dramatic, but it is still more than most other mountain bikes. I've found that this translates to slow (as in not twitchy) steering which I think is a good thing for riding on snow, but I might not appreciate it as much for riding on dirt. The tires also self steer dramatically at low pressures on pavement (if you lean or turn to the left, the bike will pull hard to the left). This makes the bike very difficult to ride no handed if you care about that, but I've found it isn't really a big deal if both hands are on the bars and you're ready for it. It isn't noticeable at all on snow. Not sure how much of this is inherent to low pressure tires and how much is related to the tire shape and increased mechanical trail.

Good value when compared to other models.

Wanted a fat bike at a more affordable price
Paul C on May 12, 2014
Bought the 2.0 in silver/red 18 inch and have been very impressed by overall quality, level of components and frame construction. Plus, it's an absolute blast to ride! My wife enjoyed riding mine so much she wanted one too. The extra fully-equipped wheelset is a great bonus, too.
STEPHEN Z on Jun 16, 2014
The cost effective value of the product! Great pricing! High quality components. Good user/purchaser product reviews. I have an existing 8-speed 26x4.5" fat bike intended for beach sand. I love my existing bike, but I want to use this Framed Minnesota 2.0 fat bike to expand my horizons and get into some fat bike mountain climbing and snow trail riding. I am now looking forward to receiving delivery of the product.

A shopper on Jul 27, 2014
· Add Answer · I Have This Question Too (5)
The Framed Minnesota 2.0 Fat Bike looks like a great bike at a great price. I am thinking of ordering one, but I am wondering about the shorter top tube (About 3cm shorter than typical geometries). I am wondering how this would fit and ride? I am 5' 10.5" and looking at the 18" frame.
A shopper on Dec 11, 2013
Best Answer: Great question.
I have not been luck enough to test out the bike but those here that have say that the shorter top tube actually positions the rider more over the front wheel...I think that GearJunkie.com says it best in their review of the Minnesota 2.0. Check it out at http://gearjunkie.com/framed-fat-bike.
Regarding your height, the 18" would be perfect.

is an owners manual included w/ bike?
A shopper on Mar 16, 2014
Best Answer: I do not believe a manual was included. It is recommended that you get the bike assembled at your local bike shop (although it is pretty much full assembled shipped). I am not sure what information you would need in a manual, but I am sure there are plenty of web sites with fat tire riders that would be happy to answer your questions

I'm 5'7. 30 inseam. My normal MTB is a 18inch. Should i go with the 18 or the 16?
A shopper on Mar 27, 2014
Best Answer: I am 5-8, and wear a 32" inseam for my jeans. My 18" 2.0 is a perfect fit. Based on your question, I think you could probably go with either the 16 or 18, but I think the 18 is a better size. The 2.0 is a more upright geometry, and if the top is a little long, you can easily get a shorter stem. The 2.0 is the best fat bike value on the market, enjoy!

I'm 5'8" with a positive Ape Index. My regular mountain bike frame is 15.5, but my hybrid is a 17. Do I go with a 16 or an 18?
Dan-o on Mar 11, 2014
Best Answer: I am 5'9.5" with 30 inseam and ape-like long arms. I purchased an 18 inch. While I love the bike, the top bar gets WAY too close to the vitals for comfort. If I were buying again, I would have gotten the 16 incher.

Can the Framed Minnesota 2.0 Fat Bike be ordered with a Cruiser style handlebar and larger seat? Thank you.
Jerry M on Aug 3, 2014
Best Answer: I'm not aware of any custom options from The House or Framed Minnesota for the 2.0, at least there weren't any other than choice of color when I ordered mine and my wife's 2.0. That said, we put On-One's Mary Bars on ours for less than $30 each. Saddles are a very personal choice -- my wife opted for another saddle with an anatomic cutout for women (about $30) and I transferred my Brooks Champion Flyer saddle from another bike. We love our 2.0s and have been having a blast on them all summer!

Hi, I was wondering if you had any plans to introduce a model with suspension forks (such as Rockshox Bluto)?
Simon on Jul 25, 2014
Best Answer: The thought has crossed my mind, but really only for. 29er usage. The fat tires have tons of flex so you don't need a shock unless your riding regular 29er tires. Which I will pretty often in the summer.

But I will defiantly be getting rack and fender additions eventually.

Are fat bikes ideal for a motor ?
A shopper on Sep 2, 2014
Best Answer: This bike would be better for an engine, More so than other types of bikes. Larger frame and tires.... It would be a cool ride with a motor.

The only problem I could foresee would be when dealing with the tire / axel size and fitting the prefab kits that are potentially made for a 135mm span. Check into that and I would say go for it.

Does not seem too small. It is a pretty short top tube, but for this type of riding, it is fine. It is a great value!

Can I use the Rock Shox Bluto RL 100mm Bike Fork on the Minnesota 2.0?
Paul C on Aug 3, 2014
Best Answer: The MN 2.0 does not have a tapered headtube to accommodate a suspension fork. There are some people who have added a coupling to make the Bluto fork work but you will have to get a new hub to the tru axle and have you hub restrung. So in the interest of money and Time I would suggest just upgrading to the MN 3.0

My question simple, does anyone know the official weight support is for this bike? Most bikes are around 250lbs and I can imagine this would be rated a bit higher due to the nature of the build.

A shopper on Jan 21, 2014
Best Answer: The Minnesota 2.0 does have the ability to have the chainrings swapped so if you wanted to do so you could. We can not make those changes for you though so you will have to buy the rings after market and have them installed at a bike shop. And yes if you wanted to swap out the cranks for the sram x5 fatbike cranks you can.
