Description: Framed 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 with a 15mm thru axle to accommodate up to a 4.8" tire on the front and back. 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.

Great
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.

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.

SWEET
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.

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"

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.

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 ?
Thanks
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.

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."

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

Dror B on Nov 30, 2014
Best Answer: Dror,
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.

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.

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
