Change your riding preference quicker than a teen's mood thanks to the Minnesota 3.0 w/Rockshox Bluto Fork package, which comes ready-to-ride with an alloy rigid fork, PLUS the RockShox Bluto fork (included but not installed); thus, giving you 100mm of squish up front. The two fork option gives you unsurpassed versatility to tackle whatever the trail or season throws at it. We're not forking around here!
Trade some bounces for some ounces. Ride with the lightweight alloy rigid fork for racing or winter riding. For greater performance in winter or on sand, match the alloy fork with the low Psi 26 x 4.7" Vee Rubber Bulldozer tires for insane traction and unsurpassed float over snow, mud, loose rock and sand. With this set-up, your fattie will never see storage. Full-on 365 riding!
The frameset is constructed of oversized 6061 alloy tubing for a high strength to weight ratio, light enough to maintain precise maneuverability. The Avid BB7 brakes provide reliable, consistent stopping power in below freezing temperatures, snow, slush and sand. Looking for the ultimate in off-road handling? The Framed single-wall rims are drilled out to reduce weight, yet still deliver dominant performance. The super tread design of the Vee Rubber Bulldozer 120TPI tires maintain precise control even during those "oh crap" moments.
The Minnesota 3.0 and 3.0 XWT both utilize a 190mm rear hub and a 150mm thru axle hub with a 15mm thru axle to accommodate 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 for 365 riding. The hubs and bottom bracket are sealed for a smooth, dependable roll similar to a genetically enhanced hamster on a well-oiled wheel.
RockShox Bluto has 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 royal fat treatment by reengineering it to meet the unique demands 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 its 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. Most riders investing in a high-end fork 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.
