Description: Minnesota 3.0 Fat Bike

The Minnesota 3.0 is the top of the mountain in Minnesota Fat Bike series! This fat bike has all the great features of the MN 1.0 and 2.0 with a kick! Riders Love the MN 3.0! "Too Much Fun! Most fun I've had on a bike since I was a kid!"

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.  FRAMED added a tapered head tube so you can run your choice of the FRAMED Alloy fork, FRAMED EFBE approved full Carbon fork or the RockShox Bluto suspension fork. The 3.0 series has upgraded drivetrain to SRAM X7 2X10 for even more range and climbing ability and stopping power from Avid BB7 mechanical disc brakes with 160 mm rotors to provide reliable consistent stopping power in snow, slush and sand.  All versions utilize a 190mm rear hub and a 150mm thru axle front hub to accommodate up to a 4.8" front tire and 4.7" rear in the winter. The hubs and bottom bracket are sealed for a clean dependable roll. FRAMED rounded this out on Aluminum alloy 80 mm 32 hole lightweight rims to reduce rolling weight and increase strength and performance. Traction is brought to you by the FRAMED Minnesota 4.0, 120 tpi folding bead tires with lightweight tubes. Riders agree; "these have a perfect tread pattern to be a true 365 day tire".   The result of this great combo is a true take it anywhere, do anything fat bike that won't break your piggy bank!

3.0 with Alloy Fork comes standard with an oversized 6061 aluminum alloy rigid alloy fork that can handle everything you can throw at it, 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

It is a Fat Bike
Our group is near 30 riders. I got my 3.0 last winter just before the heavy North East Snows. Since then 8 of our 30 have fat bikes. This fully rigid is just fine for some of the nastiest trails we have here in the North East. I have ridden all over this country, and nothing compares to the rugged and technical trails here in the North East. This bike handles it all...! The 3.0 has the upgraded SRAM components which is important. You need good breaks for these large wheels. This bike is not for road riding, trails ONLY

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.
christopher j on Feb 9, 2016
I have a friend that referred me and the reviews from other customers looked very good as well.

The 2.0 I would have preferred was sold out and the additional 5% off helped me move up to the next level fat bike.

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!

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.

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
Best Answer: Good Day!
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."

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.

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!

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

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.

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
Best Answer: Hi!
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?

Best Answer: The Bud and Lou will fit on the 100mm rims but the 3.0 will only accommodate a 4.8 in tire in the front.

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?
Peter L on Jul 19, 2015
Best Answer: Hi Peter Check out the Minnesota 1.0 series. Great price, 9 gears and fun to ride all year round!

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
Best Answer: Hi Dan,

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

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
Best Answer: Dave,
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
Best Answer: Good Day,
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

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
