Description: Framed Minnesota 3.0 Fat Bike w/ Rockshox Bluto Fork


Go Big or Go Home! Shred and conquer regions where time forgot with the Minnesota 3.0, featuring Vee Rubber H-Billie 26" x 4.25" 120 TPI tires. Ride these XL skins at low Psi for insane traction and unsurpassed float over snow and sand. The 3.0 is designed to go deeper into the unknown than standard fat bikes. Pedal your way through primitive terrain with a Minnesota 3.0.

Looking for the ultimate in off-road handling? The 3.0's frameset is constructed of oversized 6061 alloy tubing for extreme riding, but yet light enough to maintain pin-point maneuverability. The Avid BB7 brakes provide reliable, consistent stopping power in snow, slush and sand. The Framed single-wall rims with unsurpassed strength-to-weight ratio matched with the super tread of the Vee tires allow you to remain in control during those "oh crap" moments.

The 3.0 w/RockShox comes standard with an alloy rigid fork AND the RockShox Bluto fork; (included but not installed) thus, giving you 100mm of squish up front. This trail-friendly version is ready to tackle whatever the trail or season throws at it. Both versions utilize a 190mm rear hub that accommodates up to a 4.8" tire on the front and back. Framed didn't stop there. It upgraded the drivetrain to SRAM X7 2x10 for more range, and included Avid BB7 brakes for more stopping power and easier adjustment. The hubs and bottom bracket are sealed for a clean dependable roll.

RockShox Bluto RL 100mm Bike Fork:
RockShox started with the features you've come to love: fast black aluminum upper tubes, stout 15mm Maxle or crown adjustable damping, tapered steerer tube and the infinitely tunable Solo Air spring. The chassis received the fat treatment by reengineering it to meet the unique needs of fat tires and wheels. Everything from crown to axle has been optimized to tackle the increased torsional loads of its wide stance. With more traction and control than ever before, you'll never be happier you went fat.

RockShox prints Air Guides on all of our air-sprung forks. Maybe not a technological feat, but it will help you set up your suspension in seconds instead of minutes. And more time on your bike equals more chances to earn King of the Mountain on your favorite trail. Well, maybe it is a technological feat.

The RockShox Bluto fork is a $649 investment in your bike. Most riders investing in a high-end fork like the Bluto will have certain riding preferences, such as your stack height. The last thing we want to do is make an assumption and cut your fork too short. We do not install the Bluto fork so that you can match the stack height to your riding preferences.

great value for the money
disc brake mounts on stock fork were bent causing caliper housing to rub on disc,luckily i had ordered bike with the optional Bluto fork
will see how Framed handles the problem
1st ride with bike I was able to ride thru a rock garden that had beat me every other time,the 4.25 wide tires float over anything
2nd ride was down a local Cape Cod beach,very impressive on sand,This bike should give the name brand bikes a run for the money !!!!

Minnesota 3.0 with Shock
I've put 100 miles on this bike The bike performs very well this was my first fat bike and I was very impressed by the ride The only two weaknesses in the bike are the crank and the rims I recommend replacing the crank with a race face and going to a one by set up. The rims are light weight and they are easy to remove a tire from no tire levers needed but difficult to balance on the wheel and nearly impossible to make tubeless. But for the price you can replace the rims and crank and still be significantly cheaper then any other bike on the market

Great bike for the price
I recently received my 3.0 bike and have taken it out on two single track rides. The initial ride was more to get accustomed to the bikes dimensions and what adjustments would be needed. I did assemble the bike myself, but also took the bike to my LBS to have it tuned up correctly. After the initial ride I did replace the seat post with a Thomson Setback for better downhill and also replaced the back brake with an inexpensive Avid Juicy hydraulic I had in my parts cabinet. The second ride was amazing! The trails are mostly rocks and roots which allowed the Bluto shock to work perfectly. I ride a Stumpy Elite and a hard tail SS and I felt just as comfortable on the 3.0 as my other bikes. I will admit that the weight of the 3.0 makes the ride a little more challenging, but the "What the hell was that??" look on the other bikers faces is well worth it. Strongly recommend the 3.0 for the price and quality. I only hope we get that one day of snow in McKinney so I can try that out!

Best Answer: Hi!
It is hard to get solid info, but things are officially moving, and they should be here soon. I realize you are waiting, and that is lame. The most updated info will be from the Framed guys themselves: info@framedbikes.com or 866-956-5971.

Two questions - approx delivery on 3.0 with fork ordered this weeek
and - what are the recommended pedals for the bike for off and on road biking? Thanks
s B on Oct 30, 2014
Best Answer: Hello,

The estimated ship date of the Framed Minnesota 3.0 right now is 11/8 but that is not firm due to the rail delays and longshoreman strike on the West Coast.

For the Minnesota bikes we have some Framed Alaskan Pedals for $69.95 that I would recommend.

What is the estimated ship date it I were to order now?
Dave W on Nov 14, 2014
Best Answer: Dave,
This is an important question, with an imperfect answer. There are a number of variables that have inserted themselves into the shipping process...making this, honestly, tough to estimate. That said, they could be at your door as soon as a week and a half to two weeks. For a more detailed answer speak to our bike guys at: 866-243-6932. Believe me, I want them here worse than anybody.

I periodically travel with my job and would prefer to work my schedule to coordinate with the delivery date of my bike. How will I be notified that my bike has been shipped? Will your company send me an e-mail with a tracking number or should I keep checking my Visa to see if it's been charged and thus shipped? Thank you for any information Bryan
Bryan E on Nov 12, 2014
Best Answer: The day we ship your bike you will receive a tracking number.

If you are looking at your credit card statement that should be about a 2-3 day heads up before we ship. They will authorize all the orders and prep them to ship the minute we are done counting bikes.

tire pressure on fat bikes ?
A shopper on Dec 15, 2014
Best Answer: Recommend 5-7 PSI on snow. 6-8 PSI works well on technical, rocky New England singletrack. For fast rolling on doubletrack, rails-to-trails and road riding, 8-12 PSI does the trick. The smoother the surface, the higher the pressure.This information is from personal experience and will vary with the tire configuration and rider weight. Hope these recommendations give you a good starting point. Have fun!

ian k on Oct 28, 2014
Best Answer: Hey Ian,

The Blue you are seeing here on The-House.com is the correct color for the Framed Minnesota 3.0. That light aqua you see on the Mini-sota and Women's 2.0 is specific to those models.

3.0 is scheduled to arrive tomorrow! Looking forward to snow riding but looking ahead to spring was wondering if you can recommend a compatible 36/22T crankset or is it possible to just switch the 28 chain ring to a 22? If so, which chain ring is compatible? In either case, would a new derailleur be required? Thanks
Dave S on Dec 10, 2014
Best Answer: Hey,
Sorry to delay your answer.... I want to be really careful with your Fatbike questions. The answer is yes to both! Both Shimano and Sram make a compatible 36/22 crankset. You can also change the chain ring to a 22 (CBD 104mm). I hope you love this bike! Let me know if there is anything else I can do.

Yes, you will be able to get the Bluto Shock on the 3.0 XWT version of the bike. It is not ready for the web yet, so If you want to order that exact version... call the bike shop and they would create it for you. (1 (800) 409-7669).

When I ordered mine on 9/4 it was supposed to come w/a 12-36 cassette. Thought I wouldn't need to change chainrings in that case. Why the switch? I hope the one you sent has the 36!
mike p on Dec 3, 2014
Best Answer: Hello Mike,
This 3.0 has 11-32. I am not sure what Framed had originally posted. The good people over at Framed have alerted me that you can change your order by contacting them. Let me know if there is anything I can do or straighten out for you.

Will the Bluto fork work in -35C weather or do I need a rigid fork for winter commuting?
da'bane on Nov 9, 2014
Best Answer: Hey Leon,

In the extreme cold that oil is going to thicken to the point it won't flow through the plates in the fork so you can lock the fork out with the selector on the top of the fork. If you order the one with the Bluto you will get the alloy rigid fork as well which will be there better winter fork as it is lighter than the Bluto.
