A must buy!!
Amazing bike!! I tried the 1.0 but the components didn't feel so great but I tried the 1.2 and it feels like I'm riding a 2,000 dollar bike. The bike is definitely worth it and a great buy.

Super fun...!
Got back into riding after 2+ yrs of letting my patellar/MCL tears heal. Thanks to input from a couple good friends I looked seriously at some fat tire bikes. I decided to pull the trigger on this 1.2 as I needed to keep my budget under $1000 and I am really happy I did. The bike arrived packaged very well and secure. I took it to my local bike shop (as professional assembly is needed for the warranty) to be put together and my mechanic there who's been working on bikes for decades was shocked at the quality of the bike and even said he was going to talk to the store owner to see about carrying this brand. I'm 6'3" and 250# and LOVE riding this bike. Check it out you won't be disappointed...

WOW-most fun on two wheels
I debated and debated; did research a due diligence; rented a fattie from a local shop.All I can say is WISH I’D BOUGHT THIS SOONER!!! The MOST fun to be had on two wheels. I’ve only had it a few weeks but LOVE the fat bike experience.I worried about “only” 10 speeds but this baby handles everything like a champ. I’ved used all the gears but a lot of riding is without shifting. But when I need to shifting is sharp, easy and quiet.BTW -no front derailure means fewer things to go wrong miles from nowhere-which has saved me at least once already.After comparing other bikes ( most of which cost 2-10 times more) my Minnesota 1.2 is the best purchase I’ve made in decades. I’ve recaptured the fun I felt as a kid.I log 100 miles a week on my hybrid-until snow comes. While I won’t do that on my Framed, I’ll log more smiles.I find myself thinking “wonder where this goes” as I venture down games trails, through woods, fields, over hills and across streams.Can’t wait for snow!!!

Great ride
Been out a few times on this bike and I'm very happy I bought this one. The 1x10 set up is perfect and the x5 shifters work great . The tires are super grippy and float well over all sorts of terrain . The only thing I have decided to Change is the cable disk brakes . I have ordered hydraulic ones for it . The stock ones seem to be just too under powered for my taste. I don't see a need to upgrade the fork to carbon or a Bluetooth at all the tires are more than enough to deal with any rock gardens or roots .

Great Bike
Took my new fat tire out for the first time. The trails were flooded but I had no problems getting through the water and mud.

Why did you choose this? Store
I've wanted a fat bike for sometime now, and the Minnesota 1.2 seem to fit what I was looking for! I all so like that it is set up for a suspension fork in the future if I chose.

Excellent reviews, Like the looks and wanted a Fat Bike. I chose the 1.2 so I could get a 19" frame in a black bike with red wheels

Hi guys, I´m 6.1 and with a 33 inch inseam, which size should I take on the 1.2 ?
Einar on Sep 10, 2015
I spoke to Framed and our Bike Shop and both agree that a 19" version of the 1.2 is the best fit for you.
What is the weight (rider and cargo) limit on these things?
A shopper on Sep 1, 2015
Framed suggests that the Minnesota series bikes will have a rider weight limit of right around 280lbs to 300lbs. 280 if you wanna carry cargo.
Is this something a technically inclined person could assemble, or do you offer assembly?
A shopper on Sep 20, 2015
All of the Fatbikes we offer come about 3/4th assembled, and will require attention (the nature of shipping). Unless you are extremely good at bike assembly have a certified bike tech put it together... failure to do so can void your warranty. You can chat with our bike shop for more info: 1 (800) 409-7669. Also, Framed has an ever growing dealer list that may be near you:
Greetings, can I order a couple of stock tubes for my 1.2 for backup and where can I find them please...? Thx...!!!
Eric C on Oct 21, 2015
They are right here: Sorry that took so long to get back to you!
Are these tire/wheels tubeless compatable?
A shopper on Aug 8, 2015
The tires/wheels on the Minnesota Series of bikes have been successfully set-up for tubless operation. It requires some extra taping and finesse though. Have a chat with our bike shop for a full break down: 1 (800) 409-7669.
Do the rims have the rectangle or circle cutouts ?
A shopper on Mar 1, 2018
BEST ANSWER: good question
we bought 2 bikes,
the white one has circles holes
the black one has squares holes
one of each, but could be mixed
Is it possible to upgrade to a larger tire (max 4.5)?
Will H on Feb 7, 2018
Thanks for your question, and I sincerely apologize to Donald for any confusion here. To clarify this question... what you might be able to do and is official may not be identical. Your official answer from Framed Bikes is: "It is the recommendation of Framed Bikes that a tire no larger than 26x4.5" be used on this bike."
Can you get the black frame with black rims?
Artie on Mar 21, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Currently the Minnesota 1.2 Fat Bike is available in Black/ Red and White/ Orange. However, you can purchase black wheels here:
I’m 5’11 what size would you recommend for me?
Cornstalk on Apr 25, 2019
BEST ANSWER: 19in would be the best fit for this frame.
Can I get a drop post?
Gavin B on Apr 12, 2019
BEST ANSWER: We do not offer that as an option with that model. The bike has a 30.9mm post and does not come with internal routing for a stealth dropper post. A dropper seatpost would be an aftermarket purchase.
I am 5 ft 7 in what size bike would fit me?
Gary T on Mar 24, 2019
You would be best suited on a medium (17in) frame set.
Will the Minnesota 1.2 handle a tire over 4”?
Martin H on Dec 27, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The largest recommended tire in the rear is a 4.25in and for the front wheel it is 4.8in.
Can I buy just the frame? I like the bike and the components but I need a smaller frame. I bought a 19 inch and I need a 17 inch
A shopper on May 29, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The Framed Minnesota 2.0 frame is available. Check it out HERE:
how assembled does it come if you don't opt for the $99 assembly fee?
CaptainCanoe C on Sep 29, 2017
It will be about 3/4 assembled. The best advantage of the 99% build is that the bike will be lubed and aligned correctly. Framed states that if you build the bike yourself you can void your warranty.... meaning if you opt out of this option, have a local shop finish the build.
Can I get the orange wheels with black frame ?
Mark J on Aug 8, 2017
No, unfortunately we cannot intermix the the colorways shown.
Does this bike have clearance (with the chain and the frame) for 4.7" tires in the rear? At what size would there be clearance issues? is this the same on the 1.2 and the 2.2?
Chris B on Jun 6, 2017
Both the Minnesota 1.2 and 2.2 can accommodate tires up to 4.5", no larger.
If I buy the Minnesota 1.2 with no suspension fork and I buy the rock shox bluto at a later time could get it put on for free?
A shopper on Oct 6, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Unfortunately if you were to purchase the bluto at a later time you would be charged and installation fee from a service center.
What is the largest tire size you can have on the Minnesota 1.2?
A shopper on Oct 4, 2015
The 4" tire is the max size designed to run on the 1.0 and 1.2 bikes.
Can I put on a rear rack and pull a trailer?
Del V on Oct 2, 2015
I have seen both done.
If I want to get larger tires will I need larger rims or can I just use a larger tube and tire?
A shopper on Sep 24, 2015
Yes!! The Minnesota 1.2 and 2.2 will fit up to a 4.5 in tire on the 80mm stock rims. The 80mm rims can run up to a 4.8" tire with no problems. 5" tires would require different rims.
Is there a Framed Minnesota fat tire bike that runs 4.8" tires? Or larger than 4"??
Dodio on Aug 27, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The Minnesota 1.2, 2.2, and 3.0 will run up to a 4.7in tire.

Can I order the $829.00 and add the RST suspension fork?,how much will be?
