Description: Framed Minnesota 3.0 Fat Bike w/ RST Fork

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!

MN 3.0 with RST Renegade fork: The RST Renegade Suspension fork will turn your fat bike into a great handling off road rocket! The Renegade is fat specific to fit your bike perfectly. Adding a suspension fork will increase traction, reduce the hard hits and get you more saddle time by smoothing out the trail. The Renegade has 100mm of travel, clearance for up to 4.8" tires and air sprung with internal travel adjustment.

Fun bike. Don't like the RST fork.
The bike itself is very good. I've used it mostly in winter on packed snow. It was a lot of fun in the snow and the tires gripped well. I don't like the RST forks very much. They make a loud "woosh" sound when compressing and I think the adjustments aren't consistent. I would pay the extra for the bluto forks.

After doing some research on fat bikes, the framed Minnesota came with great reviews and a good price tag. I hope it is as good as the reviews say it is.

Question on Minnesota 3.0 with RST forks. Does the fork come installed if you purchase the $79 assembly? Also, I am 5.11 with 30 inch in seam. Should i order the 18?
A shopper on Feb 8, 2016
If you order the build option with your bike they will put on the RST fork for you. I spoke to our bike shop and they agreed that the 18" frame is the best option for you.
Can this bike be order with 5"tires Minnesota 3.0fat boy w/alloy@RFT Forks 2015?
A shopper on Aug 24, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The Minnesota series bikes can accommodate up to a 4.7" tire. The AK Carbon bike could handle a 5" tire.
Does the 3.0 have a thin wheel option?
Andrew F on Jul 23, 2015
By the end of August, Framed will have a fattie/slim set available that will be compatible to the MN 3.0 (both trail and slick options).
What are the specific differences between the Bluto and RST front forks?
Suzanne R on Feb 19, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Hi Suzanne,
Both the RST and Bluto Forks are legit, and I would be happy to put either on my bike. The RST Fork is less expensive, but will be about 1/2 pound heavier. The Bluto will be a bit more robust, but is touchier to adjust.
Does this bike come with two sets of wheels?
A shopper on Jul 31, 2016
I apologize for the conflicting answers. This is the result of the fact that Framed was offering Fattie-Slim wheelsets as a bonus for a short time. Currently, this bike will come with 1 set of wheels.
Frame size chart?
A shopper on Nov 25, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I'm 5'9 the frame I use is the 16" you want the 2" standing above top tube. When it comes to the reaching the handlebars I went with a 50mm race stem. The bike overall is very comfortable. If you have any more questions let me know.
I am 5' 11.5" and have a 32" inseam should I order the 18" or 20" frame?
David K on Jul 5, 2016
The Framed peeps suggest that the 18" version of the MN series of bikes will be best for you. For more details have a chat with our bike shop: 1 (800) 409-7669. They can help!
Looking to order a Minnesota 3.0 Fat Bike w/ Alloy and RST Forks however tubeless is a must for me what are my options besides doing a conversion after I get the bike do you guys sell tubeless rims ready to go for this bike? Thanks

Whick size tire is better for riding on sand 4 inch or 5 inch?
Ed S on Dec 28, 2015
A bike that can handle an actual 5" tire is rare.... though for sand the wider options are going to be ideal. Look for a 4.7" or 4.8" tire depending on the bike. Minion:
Need a good bike for a 350lb man 6'4" is this a good fit for me?
Vainuupo A on Sep 9, 2015
You could double check with Framed, but I was informed that the max rider weight is right around 280-300 for their Minnesota Series Bikes.
