Description: Framed Minnesota 2.0 Fat Bike White/Orange

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.

Can I get an 18 in. in white and orange?
A shopper on Aug 7, 2014
Best Answer: They have the silver and red one available in 18", so I don't see why not. I'd call the 1-800 number listed at the top of the website - the 18" not being listed here may just be an oversight that they'd gladly fix if they knew.

OK, I am torn, been a roadie now for years as my knees stopped liking trials riding on my hard tail but the fat tire thing has got me totally interested! I have looked at a few (tweaked my ankle so not riding right now but it will get better soon!) and am intrigued by the Framed Minnesota 2.0 (especially with the extra 29" wheel set!) as I live on the beach in Florida.

I am a tall rider (6'6") but am long in the torso so not sure how I would fit in the cockpit of the 2.0. FWIW my inseam is only 35", yet my backpack is sick long. Wanted to touch base and see what you think about me on a 20" FM 2.0 before I go and buy it as you do not have any dealers locally for me to try it out?

Best Answer: Ken, I bought my Framed MN 2.0 on line through "The House". So, I do NOT know of any retailers (especially in FL) where you could test ride. I am only 5'11", seven inches shorter than you...but, I am confident that the 20" (largest size) frame would adjust to your height. I am a couple of months away from turning 70 y/o, so I know about joint jarring on performance road bikes! (I used to have a Greg LeMond cro-moly frame performance road bike that I loved. The Framed MN 2.0 is my second "fat tire" bike...my other is a "TomiSea Terrain Destroyer". I have ridden both the TomiSea and the Framed MN 2.0 on beach sand in Mexico and WA State; it is great fun to cruise along next to the breaking surf (a very efficient way to "beach comb"). The Framed MN is GREAT for the hills, mountains and winter snow in WA (the NPS allows these bikes on cross county ski trails each year after April 1 with <12 pounds of tire pressure, because they do NOT damage and erode the trails and skiers can still use the trails). For the price and the quality of the components the Framed MN 2.0 is a tremendous bargain (even with out the "convertible" 29" x 2.0" wheels and tire, that come with all the necessary drive and breaking hardware components). If you decide to get one I am sure that you will enjoy it. It has a very smooth ride with the 2x9 compact Shimano gears. The only "negative" is that due to the nature of the 26"x 4" tires and wheels the steering is a bit "slow" and there is over-steering, but one easily learns to adapt his riding to this. Good Luck! s/Phil

I'm very intrigued by these fat tire bikes. I'm new to mountain biking and am interested in one for a somewhat unconventional use (riding railroad tracks). At 6'0, would the 18" or 20" frame be more suitable?
Frank B on Aug 25, 2014
Best Answer: I am 6'2" and have the 20", I could have propably used the 18" for trialing. The bike frame is large without a doubt. I obtained 29ers slicks with the bike so it works out for road biking. I was surprised how high the 20" sat with the 4-inch fatties it can be challanging when going out into the woods as you are not on level ground so when you do stop I am right at the cross bar on the bike. I am ~34-35 inseam if that helps, anything less I would go to the 18". Great bike, glad I got it.
