Description: Framed Minnesota 3.0 XWT 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!

XWT - Extra Wide Tires: Super-size your Minnesota by adding this wide tire upgrade for minimal cost.  This version features massive 26 x 4.7" Vee Rubber BULLDOZER tires. Ride these XL skins at low pressure for insane traction and unsurpassed float over snow and sand. The XWT is designed to go far deeper into the unknown than standard fat bikes. Pedal through prehistoric-like environments with a Minnesota 3.0 XWT. 

MN 3.0 XWT with RST Renegade fork: The NEW 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.

Minnesota 3.0 2016
Received the Minnesota 3.0 w/rst fork. Took about 20 minutes to finish putting it together and then hit the trails outside . After 4 miles of riding steep dips ( 100 - 200 feet deep) , washed out and rutted trails, small mud holes, mostly sandy terrain. Elevation is 7100 feet and in the Medicine Bow and Sierra Mountains the altitude rises to 11 - 12000 feet. This is THE machine for this geoglogical high plains desert. 5!!! STARS for sure.Retiring the Specialized hard rock. Have been on a bike since 5 years old and this is by far an excellent design and fit for this region. Complete confidence, easy to manpulate across deep rutted trails. Definately appreciate the suspension fork. Will be installing a rear rack on this FAT TIRE WONDER !!! Only change might be a 25 inner chain ring. On yeah -- had to let some air out of the tires. Thank-you to The House for the Minnesota 3.0.....
