Description: Framed Minnesota 3.0 Fat Bike Black/Red w/ Rockshox Bluto 100mm

Fat bikes are no longer just for snow and sand. As the application of fat tire bikes continues to evolve it''s becoming apparent that it’s on the cusp of turning the mainstream cycling community into believers. The new Rockshox Bluto suspension fork is a game changer allowing fat bikes to perform amazingly well on trails. For 2015 Framed is excited to announce the launch of 2 models of the Minnesota 3.0. Version one comes standard with a rigid alloy fork but can be easily upgraded to a Bluto as the front wheel has a 15mm thru axle hub that allows you to change directly from rigid to Bluto (and back) quickly and easily.

Version two comes standard with an alloy rigid fork AND the RockShox Bluto fork, giving you 100mm of squish up front. This trail friendly version is ready to tackle whatever the trail throws at it, no matter the season. 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 as they upgraded the drivetain to SRAM X7 2x10 for more range and included Avid BB7 brakes for more stopping power and easier adjustment. The Hubs and BB are sealed for a clean dependable roll. Rounding out these new bike are lightweight H-Billie 26”x4.25” 120tpi tires from Vee Rubber that perform great in all conditions from snow to dirt.

Rock Shox Bluto RL 100mm Bike Fork:
Rockshox started with the features you’ve come to love from them: Fast Black aluminum upper tubes, stout 15mm Maxle, remote or crown adjustable damping, tapered steerer tube, and the infinitely tunable Solo Air spring. Then, the chassis got the fat treatment by reengineering it to meet the unique needs of fat tires and wheels. Everything from crown, to arch, 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 print 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. Maybe they are a technological feat.

Is it possible to replace the chain ring to smaller ones, say 22/36? What is the smallest chain ring that can be fitted to those Truvativ cranks?
A shopper on Aug 7, 2014
With regard to the Bluto 3.0, is the only reason that the Fattie Slims 29er wheelset will not work with it is that the the rear hub is 190mm, rather than 170mm? If so, is there any plan to add a new fattie slims option for the 3.0 in the future? Or, barring all else, would it be possible for a buyer to purchase a fattie slims wheelset and change out the rear hub for a 190mm hub and use it on the bluto 3.0? Thanks.
A shopper on Aug 26, 2014
Best Answer: Belay this question: the 2.0 has 135mm and 170mm hubs, while the 3.0 has 150mm and 190mm hubs, so obviously neither wheel of the existing fattie slims wheelset would work on the 3.0.

The question becomes whether a 150mm & 190mm fattie slims package for the 3.0 and the Alaska (it would be very nice with the carbon forks) is in the works.

It only shows the Bluto option online for the black/red 3.0. Can you order the bluto on the blue/black 3.0 for the same price?
A shopper on Jul 30, 2014
Best Answer: the Framed Minnesota 3.0 black/blue will also have to option for the "Bluto" suspension fork. They are the same bike same geometry just different colors and the price will be the same.

Will you be able to upgrade from the Minnesota 3 frame with an Alaska carbon or aluminum frame some time later? Swap out parts to Alaska frames if you can get one separately?
A shopper on Sep 18, 2014
Best Answer: The Carbon Frame comes with a 197 rear hub so the 3.0's hub will not fit the rear. Almost all other parts can be transferred when doing a new build later.
