Description: Framed Minnesota 2.0 Fat Bike White/Orange

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.

Derrick asked: I'm 5'9" and prefer longer top tubes approaching 600mm. I can't decide between a 16" or 18" 2.0. What are the stand over heights? Recommendations? Mar 22, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Patricia C: My husband has a an inseam of 32-33 and has the 18" and likes it. I am 5' 4" and cannot stand over the top tube. My husband said he could even be happy with the 16" The top tube has quite a slant to it and I am not exactly sure how to measure it. I don't know if this helps at all. My husband is around 5'11.
Hope this helps. He loves the bike.

Sean E: I have the 18", the stand over height at the seat tube is 29". The stand over height at the head tube is 35". I too am 5'9" and this bike height is a close shave, if you know what I mean. The 16" will give you more clearance for sure. Mar 22, 2014
Reply to Sean Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
steve s: I'm a little over 5'8", 32" in-seam. The 18'' is comfortable for me. I got a little bit of an "ape factor" going, extended arm span is 6 ft, so i like the longer top tube. With the 16' I think the cockpit would be cramped for me. Mar 22, 2014
Reply to steve Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
William T: I'm 5' 8" and gather I'm a bit "apeish". While there isn't much clearance on the stand over I think the 18 was the right choice for me. For what it's worth - this bike is pretty excellent AND a great value. Good luck. Mar 23, 2014

Mark A: FWIW, I am 5'7" and purchased a 18" Minnesota 2.0. I am glad I did-love the fit. I normally ride a 54cm road bike for comparisons sake. Good luck with your choice, it's a superfun bike Mar 22, 2014

Richard S: I'm 5' 11" and just got the 18" frame - don't have all the measurements but very happy with this frams size - almost went with the 19". 16" might be a tad small for you Mar 23, 2014

Joe G: I am 5'7" and the 18" frame works well for me. For you, at 5'9", the 18" frame should be perfect. Mar 22, 2014

A shopper asked: Are there bosses for mounting water bottle cages and cargo racks? Feb 22, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Dustin W: There is a single water bottle mount on the down tube. For rear racks, eyelets near the dropouts and 4mm hardware on the seat stay near the seat tube. There are eyelets on the rear of the fork near the dropouts, and a single hole through the apex of the fork where it meets the steer tube. Feb 22, 2014
Reply to Dustin Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
John K: Only bosses on the down tune for one bottle cage and two at the top of the chain stays for mounting a rear wheel rack. But I am sure you could drill and tap holes just about anywhere on this bike. It is built like a tank. Feb 25, 2014

A shopper asked: Can you get the bike with a taller bmxstyle handlebar? Apr 11, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Mark P: I am sure you can contact the House and ask them if they will install before shipping, but I kinda doubt it. I am guessing these come from manufacturer all prepped' for shipping. The house merely takes the box and sends, then it's up to you to take to LBS for basic assembly. That being said, if the bmx style handle bar you want will fit the stem or you can change the bits out, you could probably make it fit. Be aware this is a threadless fork and stem setup, which is pretty common on most newer bikes; I am not that familiar with BMX setups, but if nothing else, just change the handlebars for something you like, that should be easy enough. Just keep in mind you might have to change out the cables since they might end up being short.

I like it as is..I get killer looks on all the trails..

Patrick R: I've been very happy with it ridden on the street about 10 miles an off road about 15 so far. the bottom bracket was loose and they claim that's normal. my bike mechanic says it was never Tightened properly it's a minor issue probably cost me $35. the front wheel does seem to flex and make some noise when I lean into an uphill climb pretty hard. so that would be my only question is the quality of the wheels but I don't know much about what brand they are or anything.

Pavel J: Hello, my oppinios is that black colour is very universal and famous by large range of users. But to be different from other conventional bike sellers I would prefer just orange design to evoke striking uniqueness. Jan 29, 2014
Reply to Pavel Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
jon b: Pavel you have a point, but I feel like having a big tire big is unquie somewhat in itself. With that said I wouldn't mind a suttle off set in color, but the bright orange is a bit much in my opinion..almost clownish. Sadly I would purchase the bike but this is enough to deter me from purchasing Jan 29, 2014
Paul N.: Don't believe you can mix and match colors. There is a Black frame, white markings, with white wheels, or same frame with black wheels. Looks like the White frame only comes with Orange wheels. Jan 28, 2014

Mark P: I guess they brought it back. I don't see expiration date. When I bought mine it was Feb 5th and Feb 5th that option was no longer there. I would call or just buy. I like mine. The 29" wheels make it so I can take it the rack other wise your hosed, will not fit a normal rack. Feb 18, 2014
