Description: Framed Minnesota 2.0 Fat Bike Silver/Red

Free Wheel Set with Fat Bike Pre Order
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 2.0 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 giving away a Fattie Slims™ wheel set of your choice with every pre-order, a knobby set for dirt or semi slicks for the street. So, pre-order a Minnesota 2.0 Fat Bike and pick a knobby set for dirt or semi slicks for the street…it’s up to you.

  • "Finally an Affordable Fatbike for the Masses"

    , Fargo,ND
    Pros: Comfortable,Great Value,Handles Well,Stylish,Durable,Responsive,Easy To Ride,Versatile,Lightweight,Smooth Ride, Cons: Welds are not cosmetically beautiful

    So far I have been commuting with my Minnesota and planning some off-road and singletrack snow biking in the next few days. Finally some other companies are catching on and entering the fat market. The MN is surprisingly light, a solid, if not perfect, build and mix of components, and is the perfect entry bike into fat biking that you can ride as is or geek out with upgrades.

  • "Well built bike worthy of upgrades!!!!!!!"

    , Chesterton,IN
    Pros: Comfortable,Great Value,Handles Well,Stylish,Responsive,Easy To Ride,Versatile,Smooth Ride, Cons: Some components are kinda cheap,shift cable being exposed

    This is a great bike for the price. I can't complain about the drive components but the bike deserves a upgrade. It rides great I have over 40 miles on mine and so far so good. Gotta put more miles on it before i can give durability review..GTG time to ride

Robert C: Good price Jan 22, 2014
Eric S: This seems like a great deal. Yeah, I'd love to have a Surly, but if it's a matter of a $2500 fat-bike, it's just not gonna happen. At this price, getting a fat bike is a reasonable proposition. The set of free 29'er wheels is just icing-on-the-cake. Jan 21, 2014

Vidar B W: Happy with price, compared to quality. Dec 22, 2013
Daniel W: The price point is important, and offering the extra wheelset sold it for me. There are a few parts I will need to swap (the chainrings are MUCH to high, will swap for 32/24), but I think it will give me a good base to play in the snow! Dec 2, 2013

Lannie EStaff: That's a great question. I am not 100% sure if the Framed Minnesota will except a child trailer, but from the looks of it and attaching 100's of trailers to other mountain bikes with close to the same frame drop out shape, i do believe it will be possible with out modification. I will have to get back to you on this one. Jan 23, 2014

Daniel W asked: Hello! I love the idea of the extra wheels, and it looks like a great build. Like some others, though, I'm hesitating on size. I'm 5'11 with. 32 inseam and a positive ape index. Which size should I order? Jan 9, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (1) No (0)
James: The Large is LARGE. I'm 6'2" and it is a big bike. I only have a 32" inseam, so the standover is right there. I would rather side on the higher size myself, but a Medium would have worked for me. Feb 1, 2014

Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Erin N: Do not purchase anything from this website. They are not a legitimate company. I ordered a bike a few weeks before Christmas, received an order confirmation, and found out, only when I called, that they didn't actually even carry the bike they had advertised. There was no way to get it and I was left without a Christmas gift to give. They are not reputable at all.

Glen S: Yes. Technically the cassette attaches to the free wheel. Without knowing the actual statement you are referring to, I can just state that the wheels on this bike are standard freewheel. They accept 8-9-10 speed cassettes. This bike has a 9 speed. Mar 1, 2014

Robert B: That is a question for the copy writer, i can't tell you what they meant, but i would say it is the cassette. But the deal does include 2 free wheel's Feb 28, 2014

stephen e asked: I see lots of people have asked questions about sizing, but it is very important to get it right the first time. I am 5'9'' and have a 30 inch inseam. I ride 56cm road bikes. What would you recommend as the best frame size. Given the tire size affecting stand over height? thanks for taking the time to answer this. Mar 16, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Chris: Hey Steven, I'm surprised you ride a 56 cm road bike. I'm 5'10" with a 32" inseam and I ride a 54 cm Trek Madone. I used to ride the Cannondale CAAD9 in a 56 cm but it just never felt right. Anyway, I'm pretty sure you're be good on the medium 18" frame which is what I'd ride. The 16" would be too small and the 20" would be way too big. The tire size is still similar to a mountain bike 26" and 29" for stand over height. 18" will fit you fine. Mar 23, 2014

Gary D: There are forks designed for fat bikes, however that would significantly cut into the savings afforded by the purchase of this particular bike. If you have a local bike shop that sells fatties, it might be worth going in and chatting them up on their thoughts. I've never ridden one, but from many people I've heard that they have a fattie in addition to a full suspension bike, and they end up making the fattie their main bike anyway (one guy told me he rode his full suspension the other day just because he felt bad he hadn't ridden it since getting his fat bike). I plan on keeping my hard tail for other types of riding, however. Jan 17, 2014
