Description: Framed Minnesota 3.0 Fat Bike

The Framed Minnesota 3.0 symbolizes the pinnacle of evolution of the Minnesota fat bike series.  Adopting the best features from its earlier brethren, the Minnesota 1.0 and 2.0, the 3.0 combines the affordability Framed Bikes is known for with the most desirable fat bike attributes. The Minnesota 3.0 is the most capable and advanced bike in the Minnesota line.  This bike utilizes a cross country mountain biking geometry to put the rider in a position to achieve the most leverage and power over the bike while keeping a comfortable position.  Front 150mm and rear 190mm hub spacing offers the versatility to run up to 4.8" tires while also providing a strong and stable platform to increase power transfer and control.

The Minnesota 3.0 frame has a tapered headtube, which serves multiple purposes.  First and foremost, the tapered head tube provides a wider steering base which improves control, cornering ability, and overall power transfer. Pressure and force is more evenly distributed using a larger base for the head tube-fork interface.  Second, the tapered head tube allows the rider to upgrade to the latest and greatest forks on the market, including the Framed Carbon fork, Lauf Carbonara, RST Renegade, and Rockshox Bluto.  The control aspects combined with the ability to run multiple fork options makes this Minnesota the obvious trail-slaying fat bike choice.      

This ground pounder starts with a 6061 oversized Aluminum alloy frame set for high intensity riding, but yet light enough to maintain pin-point maneuverability.  The Minnesota 3.0 has an upgraded SRAM X7 2x10 drivetrain for even more range and climbing ability as well as stopping power from Avid BB7 mechanical disc brakes with 160mm rotors.  The hubs and bottom bracket are sealed for a clean dependable roll.  Traction is brought to you by the Framed Minnesota 4" 120 tpi folding bead tires with lightweight tubes.  The result of this great combo is a true, take-it-anywhere, do-anything fat bike that won't break your piggy bank!

nice bike
Bike came with rear wheel in the frame. After attaching handle bars, no adjustment of rear derailer was necessary. I'm 6'4", inseam about 35", i ordered the 22" 3.0. I'm happy with the fit, standing over i still have two inches of clearance. This bike comes with attach points for two water bottles. Lucky for me tires came installed and inflated. Because i didn't own a presta gauge or pump. On my shake out ride a pedal came loose, I reinstalled using locktite. Tough going through 6 inches of snow; 2-3" not too bad. You need metric allen wrenches to assemble, bike came with two. But, you'll need 3mm and 6mm for front wheel. Love these new shifters, too easy. Sealed bearings all around. Haven't ridden it much yet, overall pleased with the quality, components.

I received mine about a week ago and have since put about 50 miles on it in a variety of conditions - wet, dry, and different types of snow. So far it has handled the different conditions well with only tire pressure changes needed. It has been great since the moment I opened the box. Took very little time to assemble and had two good surprises - came with pedals and two attachments points for water bottles, I was only expecting the one. Overall a great bike at a great price.

solid, love everything but graphics
Love the MN3.0! I'm usually on a single speed 29er in the warmer months of MN, but absolutely needed a new winter routine to get off my butt. 3.0 seems to have done the trick, it performs well on the trails like Lebanon Hills. Definitely a different riding experience than a 29er SS, this is a low cost way to get in on the fun with a fairly light bike that has workable components with a little dialing in.

Just what I was looking for!
I live in north central Florida in the Ocala National Forest. With almost 400,000 acres with probably hundreds of miles of dirt roads to ride literally right out my front door, there is every type of surface you can think of. From solid packed dirt and rock as hard as concrete to what we call in Florida "sugar sand" that on my normal off road bike I have to dismount and walk through it. With close to 100 miles on my Minnesota 3.0 Fat Tire bike, I have yet to have to get off and push it through the soft sand. The 4" wide tires just float right over it with solid steering control! Plus the terrain is very rolling. Up one hill and down the other. Some are pretty severe once you add the super soft sand. The gearing on this bike is perfect. I made it up one of the worst, steep and ankle deep sand without standing to pedal, and I'm 63 years old! I wished I had found this bike years ago! Before I bought this I went to a local shop that had one brand name fat tire bike with almost identical components as this, seriously, almost IDENTICAL, except their bike had the brakes by the same company only they were hydraulic, not cable. $1900.00 dollars! Whoa!
Listen, if you're thinking about buying a Fat Tire, do yourself a favor and look at the Framed Minnesota 3.0. You will not be disappointed. I'm not.
Oh, also, I bought the black (flat) frame with red wheels....killer looking bike! If your not a bike mechanic, pay the $50 and have them assemble and adjust everything, I did. Bike came fast and I had it together out of the box and riding in less than 10 minutes.

Cool Bike, some difficulty.
At first try the bike is cool. During assembly the front axle thru bolt would not release. The 8 mm head was damaged. I finally managed to remove the thru bolt and found the threads damaged. I cleaned the threads and chased out the other end. I cleaned the Allen head socket so it would accept a wrench.I was then able to install the thru bolt. I would like to have a new bolt.

Otherwise the assembly was straight forward and first test ride was great.

I actually bought this bike for my girlfriend and she just rode it for the first time and says she loves it. She was riding in the snow and sand down by the river and says it floats on top making it seem effortless to ride. It was easy to put together and make minor adjustments on the brakes even if you have little experience working on bikes. I would recommend this bike, especially if you are just starting out. Hard to beat for the price.

4 Seasons Fun
Got my 3.0 wxt in October didn't get too many miles on lt during the winter icy and not a lot of snow.Just upgraded to a carbon fiber fork and fatties slims slicks.Wow what a difference the bike climbs hills like a road bike and the black rims & spokes look great. FYI the staff at the house bike shop are great to deal with professional and friendly.
April 12, 2016
Tons O' Fun
Went to The House intending to purchase a 2.0 with an additional set of wheels but Erik suggested the 3.0 due to my height - 6'3". About the same price as the 2.0 with the extras.
I have ridden bikes for over 50 years - Racing Bikes, Hybrid Bikes and most recently a nice Mountain Bike with front suspension and a hard tail, enjoying each style for their particular performances.
Hopped on my 3.0, rode to the local single track and within 10 minutes hit a tree with the end of the handle bar, cut my leg up a bit, got back on the trail and rode it hard for the next 60 minutes.
Rode it the 5 miles back home, uphill most of the way on a paved trail. Not as much fun as the single track.
Got home full of sweat and dirt. My wife bandaged up the superficial wounds and noticing the smile on my face asked me when I was going out to the trail again. Not one to waste time..... Out I went!

Why did you choose this? Store
I chose the Minnesota 3.0 over the 2.0 because of the higher level of components, and the ability to upgrade the front fork to a Rockshox Bluto. The frame is also wider allowing an upgrade to a wider tire. This bike seems to be the best value compared to other fatbikes with similar specs and components. The listed weight is also around 4-5lbs lighter than similar bikes, which is great.

I have a friend that referred me and the reviews from other customers looked very good as well.

I have been waiting for this!! What is the stand over for the 18" vs the 20"? Also any word on a slim set for these beasts?
Ryan O. on Jul 29, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Hey Ryan - Glad you are excited! The stand over for the 18" is about 31.5" at about 4 inches in front of the nose of the saddle. At this time we do not have plans for a fattie slims wheelset, but keep checking in as that may change
Thanks for the question!
Are you planning to have fatty slims for the 3.0?
Jerry on Jun 19, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Hey Jeremiah,

I haven't heard if we will be offering a fattie slims wheelset that will fit the Minnesota 3.0. If you have a chance to give our bike shop a call at 800-992-7245 they may know if we'll be getting some in or have something similar.
What is the Weight limit?
A shopper on May 2, 2015
I double check with Framed, and they claim that 280lbs to 300 lb is the ceiling for the Minnesota Series bikes.
For a few extra dollars is it worth getting the 3.0 vs the 2.0? I'm looking for a long term bike, I'm not growing anymore and am looking for a quality bike.
Justin on Jan 24, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Both won't dissapoint. The only advantages that you'll get out of the 3.0 is the tapered head tube which accepts the Bluto suspension fork and the bigger hubs which can accept wider tires. If small things like that don't affect you or how you ride then the 2.0 is a great option. I love the 3.0 to tinker with since I can do so much with it and I'm not limited on some of the things. If you can find a LBS that has both in stock try them out. The 2.0 does have a shorter top tube and I felt kinda scrunched. So I bought the 3.0 that has a longer top tube. I ride a Small and I'm 5'6"
Hi , I am interested in a fat bike. Can someone advice as to what are the differences between the minisota bike and the alskan bike ? which one would feed more to single trail riding and would feel better ?
Dror B on Jan 2, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The Minnsesota 3.0 and the Alaskan Alloy have a lot of differences and there for will offer a much different riding experience. The Alaskan Alloy delivers a much more trial oriented frame, a 1x10 drivetrain and not braze ons for any sort on panniers except for the rear. The Minnesota 3.0 having a longer and more traditional geometry it will lend itself to be a great bike for extended excursions and trekking. Also the 3.0 accommodates front and rear rack mounts for gear and equipment.
Will 3.5" tires fit on the 3.0 rims?
A shopper on Aug 12, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Hello, I decided to go for it and put 3.5" wide tires on the 3.0. I want to have a hard pack/road worthy tire for summer riding. Since it's a road tire, the fit is pretty good. Makes the bike a lot faster and I don't chew up the snow tires on the pavement. I wouldn't recommend the 3.5 if you use a more aggressive tread tire. The tires are Origin8 Captiv8er UL 120tpi 26x3.5. Thanks
What are the differences between in frame geometry of the 1.0, 2.0 and 3.0? Are where does the Alaskan fall in to the spectrum?
Travis G on Feb 3, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The Mn 1.0 has a longer top tube which is more traditional and more comfortable for relaxed longer riders or riders with longer arms. The 2.0 has a very short top tube making it very nimble and agile while riding trails. It also places the rider over the back tire more for better traction while climbing. The 3.0 is a hybrid of the 2.0 and 1.0 as far as geo but the 3.0 has a tapered headtube which fits the AK Carbon Fork and The RockShox Bluto Fork. The Alaskan is a race and trail performance bike that has a lower stand over height and a wider wheel base which allows the bike to travel at higher speeds and take on more technical obstacles while on a single track mountain bike trail.
I am trying to determine which bike, and which features would be best for me. I plan to ride almost exclusively in winter, on snow, and likely more on streets and roads than trails (alternate days to winter running in Canada ). I am 6' with a 32" inseam. I might consider some summer riding, but then I'd combine trail and street. Is the 3.0 or 2.0 a better choice? Alaskan? Carbon front worth it? Tire choice? I would likely keep my bike for a very long time. My winter runs usually take me out for an hour or two...riding likely about the same. Tips or suggestions?
A shopper on Apr 3, 2015
You ask fantastic questions, and I want to get you answers. For an in-depth discussion please chat with our bike specialists: 1 (800) 409-7669. Craig from Framed: " The entire line up from the MN 1.0 all the way to the Alaskan Carbon would work for you. This really will depend on how much you want to spend and how aggressive of a rider you are. The MN 3.0 is a great mid point bike that can do it all... while the Alaskan bikes are going to be the peak of performance. The 1.0 and 2.0 bikes are outstanding cruise around bikes at a grand price point, but carry a little extra weight. They are all fun."
does this 3.0 come with pink rims?
Muffy on Mar 21, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Mine is the black version with metallic red rims. I don't think I would call them pink.
I normally ride a 19 or 20 with an ETT around 24" - 24.5". I am 6'2" with a 34" inseam. What size should I get?
Robbe S on Dec 1, 2014

with your size and inseam going with a 20" Minnesota 3.0 is going to fit the best.
Do you have this on red/grey or orange?
A shopper on Dec 15, 2014
BEST ANSWER: At the current time we only have Black/Blue & Black/Red available.
How big is the seat and is it comfortable?
A shopper on May 31, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The seat is a WTB Volt which has a fairly long front/neck. It is on the slightly firm side (which I like). You could ask The House to change out the seat to a WTB Pure V is you would like a shorter, softer seat. Bike seats are as personal thing. You can always replace a seat for short money.
How is the 3.0 frame different than the 2.0?
A shopper on Jun 26, 2016
Thanks for the answers. One of the most important thing to consider, along with the rest of these answers, is that the 3.0 has a tapered headtube. This allows the user to switch to a carbon or suspension fork, and will make the 3.0 a little more versatile than the 2.0.
What size petals do I need for a 3.0?
A shopper on Apr 16, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The Minnesota Fat Bikes all use 9/16 pedals. The Minnesota 3.0 does not come with pedals included. The most common pedals that customers buy with the bike ( Any of The Alaskan Pedals) range from $69.95 - $79.95
Can an electric engine put on this bike?
Michael M on May 18, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Hi Michael,
You could put an electric engine on this bike... there are many types out there. However, they place unique stress on a bike, so I would not recommend it.... and it would certainly void the bikes warranty.
Buyer this bike for my 6 year old. Should I get 18 or 20 inch and allow him to just grow into the bike since it's so expensive?
Ted-ro on Feb 3, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I think you might be confusing the frame size with wheel size. The Wheel size is 26”. I am 5’9” with a 30” inseam and I bought the 18” size. The smaller Famed fat bike is the Mini-Sota with 24” wheels and has a 25.5” stand-over height. The Mini-Sota is made for youth and adults between 4'6" and 5'4", So unless you have a very tall 6-year old, I advise you to look else-wear. There are several fat bikes with 20” wheels out there on the market.
Want to know it the 3.0 can have a 4" tires?
Hotel on Feb 20, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I think mine came with 4" tires. Not sure. They are pretty wide.
i weigh 280 lbs any problem?
stan r on Apr 19, 2016
Framed suggests that around 280 to 300 is the ceiling. I think you will be just fine.
HOw heavey is it i have a 4 flight of stairs to go up everyday?
ellins d on Aug 14, 2015
BEST ANSWER: No problem. Easy to carry.
I carried it 2 flights of stairs every day, incl backpack.
Can these bikes be ridden on the street for daily use?
A shopper on May 5, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes it can.
The stock Framed 26" x 4" 120 TPI tires will reduce your street performance a bit, but the bike is not obscenely heavy and it is well built. In the near future a 29er wheelset compatible to the 3.0 will be available making this an all season, all terrain destroyer!
hi , i am 8"10', what size should fit me ?. normally Medium on mountain bike
Dror B on Nov 30, 2014
Assuming that you're 5'10" vs 8'10". You're right on the fence. If you want something more jumpy and aggressive go with 16 and if you want something more cross country feel or more stability at higher speeds go with the 18.
Can you put two waterbottles on the 3.0?
hotdoghimself on Nov 11, 2014
BEST ANSWER: There is only one Braze on for a water bottle cage. unless you get one that attaches to your bars
Can i get a 27 speed gear system and hydraulic disc brakes on this bike?
Tyler b on May 28, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Sure, you can use standard parts to swap out anything you like. The derailleurs, shifters and cranks/BB are not bad at all and if you will use it as a winter bike then I would not even think about upgrading. One thing I would do is swap out the large chaining to a smaller one for better gearing if you have hills and climbs on your trails.

The brakes I swapped for Shimano XT as soon as I got the bike as I'm used to this and also do quick downhill sections. The kids have the mechanical ones on their Minisota and they are fine.
I am 5'5. What size works best for me? 16"?
Rolan D on Jan 27, 2015
BEST ANSWER: You need to look and measure your existing bike to find out what is best.. The 18" has 22" from seat stem to handle bars, too small for me at 6' I like 25" for a longer stretch and I felt like I was going to hit my knees.. Also check out your inseam. If you have long legs, the 18 will work. Don't forget that when you are riding the bike you have shoes on. Add 1-1 1/2 inch to inseam
I am 6' 5", would the 3.0 be my only option?
A shopper on Oct 19, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Shopper - Yes, the 3.0 is the best option for taller people
Hope that helps!
The Blue rims on a black frame is different from the Blue rims on a white frame. Can I purchase the lighter blue rims to accompany a white frame?
A shopper on Jul 26, 2016
I understand that is weird. They are different colors, and they cannot normally be swapped out. To request this please chat with our bike shop directly: 1 (800) 409-7669.
At 6 "1" is a 20 inch Minnesota 3.o right size?
A shopper on Jul 24, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The 20" would work but the 22" Framed Minnesota 3.0 Fat Bike would fit better.
What is the main difference/similarity in the Framed Minnesota 3.0 and the Wolftrax Alloy?
A shopper on Jul 11, 2016
The single largest difference is that the Minnesota 3.0 use a straight gauge aluminum alloy while the Wolftrax uses a hydroformed aluminum alloy. Hydroforming is a process that produces a superior tubes set and a better frame. The Minnesota is a great value and is compatible with all the same parts a Wolftrax.
Hi. I have several questions. I hope you don't mind.
1. A) Making the proper choice for my fork upgrade is a primary concern. I am wondering what are the pros/cons to the Carbon Forks vs the stock Alloy forks?
1. B) I am also wondering what are the pros/cons when comparing Bluto and Renegade forks?
1. C) I only plan to ride my bike around town. There are no trails nearby. Which fork upgrade would serve me best?
1. D) When the bike is shipped, will the original fork accompany it?

2. I am 5'5" and have a 29" inseam, so I should order the 16" frame?

3. The bike comes partially-assembled. Can you install a yellow rim liner instead of the standard black on both tires? If so, at what additional cost?

4. If I repaint the frame & forks when my bike arrives, do I void the 3 year warranty?

Thank you.

will you get 2 forks if you choose one as a free gift?
A shopper on Jun 18, 2016
Yes! Best deal ever. You will get the standard Alloy Fork along with the fork of your choosing.
Are the freebe forks shipped to you in addition to the fork that comes with the bike?
Ken A on Jun 7, 2016
Yes that is correct.

Dale H on Jun 1, 2016
We do not currently have Orange rims compatible to the MN 3.0 Bikes. Apologize. We only have the colors currently posted.
Hi I have bought Minnesota 3,0 Fat Tyres bike and I wanted to buy an airpump for putting air into tyres and also i wanted to have some tools to install the bike seat. please kindly send your product recommendations on these items?


Pardhiva E on Jun 1, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Good Day Pardhiva,
Basically any standard floor pump for bicycles will work great for for your 3.0. I spoke to our bike shop, and they suggested that the Crank Brothers Multi 17 would be the ideal tool for your bike: For more info, have a chat with our Bike Shop: 1 (800) 409-7669.

How can I get the 11-36 cassette with the 3.0, like is offered with the 2.2, instead of the 11-32?
Ben G on Nov 14, 2015
The 11-32 is what currently comes from Framed on all MN 3.0 bikes.
I am 6 feet tall with a 32 inch inseam. What size 2.0 should I buy? I anticipate I will ride this in winter on roads and on snow? Is 2.0 the best option?
christine e on Oct 15, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Hi Christine,
I spoke to our bike specialist, and the Framed peeps... an 18" frame in the regular 2.0 or 2.2 will be perfect for you, or a 19" frame in the 3.0! I was out.... I apologize for the long delay in responding to your question.

Typically 3-4 days (we are out in MN). They will come 3/4th assembled. Because shipping can be a surprisingly violent process... the components will need alignment too. I will say that these are sweet bikes!
Hi, looking to purchase a fat bike, probably the 3.0. Do u sell an electric hub for it?
A shopper on Sep 22, 2015
The 3.0 is a versatile bike with a pretty sweet reputation... not a bad choice. We do not offer electric hubs for fatbikes... but here is a grand aftermarket option:
Will the Surly Bud & Lou tire combination fit on the Minnesota 3.0 on the stock 80mm rims?

I'm a novice rider looking to get a fat bike. I really like simplicity in my bikes. I see all of these bikes with 20 plus speeds and it's just too much for me. I'm the type of person who would be very happy with a 5-10 speed fat bike. I'm a big, overweight, clumsy rider. I am 6'4", 270 lbs, long legs. I need a recommendation. Is there any fat bike I can get with only a few speeds that's a good fit for my body?

BEST ANSWER: Hi Peter Check out the Minnesota 1.0 series. Great price, 9 gears and fun to ride all year round!

The remaining bits are not to hard... but be aware there is a couple of things to be careful about (ex:1 pedal has a reverse thread). Chat with our bike shop to get your bike perfect: 1 (800) 409-7669.

BEST ANSWER: Yes, you certainly can.
I am 5'8.5" tall with a 31" inseam. Would a 16" or a 18" be better for me? I am looking for a more aggressive/trail riding fit.
Dan L on Feb 4, 2015

Ideally a 17.5" would be perfect, but the 18" Framed Minnesota 3.0 Fat Bike is right there too!

Dror B on Jan 28, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Hello Dror.
You can, just specify this when you order your bike.
are the framed decals under a clear coat? or can they be removed if wanted?
shredmaster on Jan 7, 2015
The decals are under a clear coat. You will not want to remove them without some effort.
Took the 3.0 out last night for the first time. Tons of fun on the dirt and snow. Getting to the trail on the paved access roads I noticed the turning was anything but smooth. Is this normal for tires this size or is there an optimum tire pressure to smooth out the turning? Don't notice this on my MTB 2.75 tires.
Dave S on Dec 14, 2014
This is not overly normal, the responses to these bikes have been pretty smooth. Please contact our bike shop 1 (800) 409-7669 soon to work out any possible kinks as a precaution. That said, these bikes do have 4 inch tires, and there will be a certain amount of "self Steer" with them, along with a little bit of a learning period for you. Let me know if there is anything I can help with.

Hi, from Illinois here, when is it available? Can I pre order now? How?
A shopper on Nov 2, 2014
The Framed Minnesota 3.0 Fat Bike will be available as soon as we can possibly get them... which is the date in orange on the right side of the page. I apologize for the delay, this setback stems from all of the transportation issues that are plaguing the Western Half of the U.S. Finally, we are happy to accept a pre-order for the 3.0... the fastest and best way to do this is to call our customer service people here: 1 (800) 409-7669
I ordered a 3.0 and need to know what size pedals it uses?
buyer on Nov 2, 2014

We recommend the Framed Alaskan Bike Pedals.

Have fun!
If I pay some additional amount for different hubs can I get the additional 29er rims for free?
A shopper on Sep 17, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Unfortunately we will not honor the Fattie slims as a free wheelset anymore.That Was a Promotional deal we did for the initial launch of the Framed 2.0 Line. With purchase of any Framed MN 2.0 the price for the wheels will be dropped to $99. The Fattie Slim wheels will not work with the Spacing on the 3.0 bikes. The spacing on the rear triangle and fork are too wide to work with the fattie slim wheels
