Description: Framed Minnesota 1.0 Fat Bike

"Great Bike, You will not be disappointed. For the price point of this bike, it's everything and more. Assembly was a snap."

The FRAMED Minnesota 1.0 fat bike is your portal to an all new dimension of year round adventure! This bike, built on a Framed aluminum alloy platform, is an agile, rugged, high-performance machine that performs like a dream, whether you're riding in dirt single-track, lake and ocean beaches, or trekking overland in snowy winter conditions. This full-fledged fat bike opens the door to more places to explore and more seasons to ride.

SRAM X4 1X9 - Framed decided to equip their entry level fat bike offering with the formidable SRAM X4 1x9 component group.  A 32t front chainring paired with a SRAM 11-32 9 speed cassette puts you in position to power up steep climbs and charge down the other side.  The X4 index shifter is precise and dictates the rear derailleur with command.  The long cage rear derailleur puts the chain exactly where you tell it to every shift, and stays clear of obstacles.

This Minnesota 1.0 is very aggressively priced at $699.95, but rest assured, it's not short on quality. The frame set utilizes oversized 6061 alloy tubing and proven SRAM X4 components. Framed went with Avid BB5 Mechanical Disc brakes for reliable stopping power in all temperatures. The rims are single wall lightweight alloy and drilled out for added strength to weight ratio. Finally, Framed has spec'd the new Minnesota 26" x 4" wire bead tires for all out high performance in all conditions. Discover your world's hidden terrain on a Minnesota 1.0 today!

Minnesota 1.0 Fat Bike
I bought this bike in September this year. I've not had it in the snow or sand yet but I will tell you that this bike rides awesome. It tracks well and is easy to maneuver even in tight spots.

Some reviews lacked some important information that I was looking for such as braking and shifting performance. The 1.0 is a nine speed and so far I have not found the need for anymore gears for the type of riding I do. I found that the SRAM shifters shift gears very nicely compared to other bikes I have owned. I can't see the reason for a 21 speed for this type of bike. I was impressed with the brakes stopping power but they do make a bit of noise went applied hard. I'm ok with that and I do believe you can upgrade if desired.

I personally did not like the grips it came with and bought SRAM replacements..... very happy with them!

If you have zero mechanical ability, pay the assembly fee. Otherwise do it yourself, it's not that bad.

I would buy another one of these in a heartbeat. Worth the money. Hope this helps.

done gone fat
i was impressed with how it was had a lot of they were shipping a satellite.i have built up a bike from a frame so i did the valve stem was way off on a angle so i deflated the tire to correct.both brakes needed a full adjustment.went over every fitting on the bike and found none loose.spokes are laced tight and the tires that came on this bike are 60 TPI. i wasn't excited about a black bike and couldn't tell in the pics but its a matte finish -which i like more than gloss.its a nice finish and some parts are powder coat.the only thing i didn't care for were the resin pedals which i replaced right off.shifting is fine and only the levers needed position really glad i got it and it was delivered quickly ups to michigan.its my first fatty and i enjoyed my first ride today.if you don't want to spend thousands id advise you to consider one.

Great bike, not without its flaws
I love this bike, it feels really sturdy, and is a lot lighter than I expected. I don't have any experience fat biking, so I can't speak on comparisons. But I will say the shifter is pretty slow to respond, even during cruising situations it is slightly annoying.
That said, upgrading the shifter isn't that expensive, And I've upgraded components on every bike I've owned, so not much different there. I preferred this bike to the 2.0 because o actually wanted the single chainring and not the double. In my opinion, the rear cassette covers all the basis I need.... So far.

All in all, really happy with it. Styled well, built well. Small upgrades and its a great bike.

Also, might need an upgrade in tires for winter, but they are ok for most other uses

Enjoying it
I've only had my 1.0 for 3 weeks but have been really enjoying it. It's wanting to stay straight and upright makes for a less tiring ride since you don't have to 'fight' the bike. Both my wife and 20 year-old son have ridden it and both have also enjoyed it. Service from The House was great - prompt delivery and very well packaged. Ionly have 2 complaints: one is I looked to buy front and rear mud guards but The Hose only supplies one - front I think. Other complaint - winter is coming to an end in NJ so will have to wait till next season to be the only one on the trails!

Can't get enough
Had this phattie for 3 weeks now and have been loving every minute of it. Such a blast on the rocky New Hampshire single track. Upgraded the grips and pedals, stock ones are junk.

Just what I expected and hoped for.
Really enjoy this bike. I didn't expect top of the line components for this great price, and I'm happy with the performance. The gear selection is well spaced and versatile. Carefully packed and easy to finish assembly. Thanks MF! PS: Love the free watch just as much.

Nice bike, worth it!
Shipped fast, delivered on time and well packaged. Missing one tool to assemble pedals but I had another tool myself. A few dings on the rims, but not that big a deal. Biggest problem was the front wheel reflector broke off less than 2 minutes after riding it, but I don't really need it so it's not that big a deal, just a little unsettling...Ride is smooth and fun, easy gear changes, brakes great, corners well, pretty sure its even better uphill than my regular mountain bike...right off its a great bike, if you want you can get better pedals and a softer seat, but these would be personal things, and not something you need to do.

john l on Jun 27, 2017
It seemed like the best 1x9 option available. Not into over-gearing.

Possible to get a black frame w/black rims? Not digging the white if possible to switch.

The black rim option is going to be available. Call the bike shop as you are placing your order, and request the rims. 1 (800) 409-7669
How much does the Minnesota 1.0 weigh?
A shopper on Nov 22, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Looks like they just added a weight of 32.5 lbs to the specification chart.
what is the difference between the 1.0 and the 2.0 ?
A shopper on Apr 15, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The Main differences between the 1.0 and the 2.0 would be a 9 speed v.s. an 18 speed. There is also a noticeable component upgrade as well as more color choice, and the available Fattie Slims tire set!
Are the wire bead tires 120 tpi? Are they the Same as the tires that come with the MN 2.0 bikes?
Doug on Jan 13, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Doug, the tires that come with the 2015 Minnesota 1.0 are going to be the same as the 2015 Minnesota 2.0. They both have Minnesota tires that are indeed 120 tpi. Hope this helps.
are there any limits on what kinds of terrain I csn use this bike on?
B P on Dec 7, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Not really. You'd be surprised how versatile the fat bike really is. Better grip, more stable ride, built in shock absorbers. You can't go wrong with the Framed Minnesota 1.0 Fat Bike.
is there a weight limit on these bikes ?
A shopper on Dec 28, 2014
The realistic limit on these bikes is around 280 pounds. Framed suggests the absolute ceiling is 300.
Do the rims come tubeless ready?
A shopper on Sep 7, 2015
Nicole is correct, though they can be made to be tubeless compatible.
Is the 1.0 comfortable for just general riding if I'm not doing much off-road. Say like just going the beach and riding the boardwalk?
Steve on May 8, 2015
BEST ANSWER: i've only had my 1.0 for a few months but so far it's proven a good bike all around - road or trails or snow. i'm considering buying an extra pair of narrower wheels for summer use only because i'd like to save the wider tires for snow riding.
I'm 6'2" and have back problems. Can I swap out the handlebars for a more upright position?
dondi on Jun 5, 2015
BEST ANSWER: thats what i did.i got a riser bar that was also a bit shorter (span) and put on a different stem that moved the bar closer to i was more up-right and my hands werent as far apart.gravity light bar 31.8/40/710 and a raceface stem is what i got.-john
Since the 1.0 has the same rims as the 2.0, can I order the 1.0 with the green rims?
A shopper on Mar 22, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I checked with the Framed guys, and our bike shop, and at this time the green rims are not an option on the 1.0.
Do you have the 1.0 in stock of I drive over to pick it up?

I'm 6'1" with a 32" inseam looking at a framed fat bike. I'm curious what size to get?
A shopper on Jan 15, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I am 6' with a 31 inch inseam. I have the 19" frame. I can barely stand over the top bar. So i wish i had got the 17 inch frame. The 19 will be a bit tight and cloes to giving you a high voice if you know what I mean.
i am 5'3" would this be a good bike for me?
bobby on Feb 13, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes, I think you would be ok on this size. I am 5'6 with a 30" inseam an I have plenty of stand over height. I think you should consider your inseam over your height. If you can, go to a local bike shop and try a bike with a small frame with fat tires or 29" inch tires.
Hi. I am 5’6", 145 lbs, with an inseam of 29". Is the 1.0 the right height for me?
A shopper on Aug 6, 2015
I am only and inch taller, and just rode 2 1.0s. You are sort of between sizes, but I think the 15" 1.0 will be the best fit. If you look at a 2.0 you will want the larger size (it has a snugger cockpit).
Hey this bike has no type of suspension?
DaddyClean on Apr 28, 2017
BEST ANSWER: YEs, that's correct, it's a regular riding bike, you'll need to look at the 3.0s, and the 2.0s and specifically look for the models with the front shocks.
How does this bike handle the beach?
A shopper on May 20, 2016
BEST ANSWER: it is actually almost easier to ride on sand and soft dirt than it is on pavement. The tires are so large that it glides over sand.

On pavement there is a lot of resistance from those big tires you peddle harder.

But I think its a great bike. Be sure to measure your inseam to know whether to get the 17" or the 19 " frame. I'm 6' foot and the 19" frame is almost to big.
guess it does not come in gender versions?
A shopper on Aug 2, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Generally speaking mountain bike frames are not gender specific. Some of the larger brand names do manufacture female specific designs. Buy a bike based on your stand over measurement and take it to a reputable shop to adjust if you don't know how. Gender specific seats, shorter stems, different bars can all help make a custom cockpit for your measurements.
Can I get black wheels with this bike?
A shopper on Jul 31, 2016
Robert is correct. For the moment this bike will not come with black rims.
if u don't get the 79.00 set up what details in setting up the bike yourself i how does it come and what does it take to get it to run like shop shape and i'm 5 10 is the 17 in the right size for me?
silver fox on Feb 10, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yea the 17 inch frame would be about right. Im 5'11" and got the 19 it is almost too big. I wish i had got the 17

As to rhe assembly. I got the assembly and it came reasy to ride. I dont know how mich assembly would be required but i would think tou have to put most of it together.
Can you tell me the Specific size headset used on this bike? I am trying out a suspension fork and need to get a crown race.
Rick M on Mar 4, 2017
Michael's answer is good: ZS44 (1 1/18" Threadless, 28.6mm steerer tube, 30mm crown race,). This can be used as a replacement:
Could I swap this bike's fork with the Bluto suspension fork?
Eric F on Dec 6, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Hi Eric.... no. The suspension forks require a tapered head-tube. The MN 1.0 uses a straight head tube. Look here: The 3.0 will have a tapered head-tube.
I am a novice with bikes with gears. What is the difference between Single front gears and double?
A shopper on Sep 15, 2016
Steve's answer is good. A single front gear will be 1 chain ring in the front. Double front gears will be two gears that the chain can switch back and forth from. Basically a double front gear will double the amount of gear options on your bike. This Minnesota 1.0 has 1 gear in the front, and 9 in the rear. I like that. It is lighter and simpler to use.
What is weight limit?
Big Mike on Jan 8, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Hi Kenneth,
Framed stated that the weight ceiling for their fatbikes is just under 300lbs... around 290.
Can I put the fattie slim wheel set on a 1.0?
Adam W on Sep 4, 2017
You can! Currently this: or this: is what Framed has to offer you.
Spare wheelset included?
Phil101 on Apr 22, 2017
There is not a spare wheel set included with this bike but you can purchase one of the Fattie Slim wheel sets to go along with this bike making it more versatile.
Is the 15" frame really that much different than the women's 15" minnesota 1.0 frame? My wife is not digging the girls bike colors. If it is different, can we request different colors?
A shopper on Mar 3, 2017
From Framed: "Not terribly different. the women models have a slightly shorter top tube to accommodate the shorter torso of women. However many women buy the mens model, so not a huge difference."
Anyone return a 1.0 for the 2.0 to get more gears? Expensive to exchange?
Chris D on Jan 9, 2017
Your best option is to upgrade the parts necessary to make the bike a 2x9/10 drivetrain. Call Framed Bikes directly if you have some specific questions about compatibility and parts recommendations.
What assembly will I have to do if I don't do extra $75 assembly charge?
A shopper on Aug 22, 2016
You would need to assemble the front tire, handlebars, pedals, and seat. The most important part is that all the components will need alignment. This needs to be done carefully. People mistakenly think this is simple and wreck their bikes. If you pass on the build option take your bike to a local shop to finish it. If you do not have your bike built by an actual tech Framed will not honor your warranty.... it is that important.
What is the widest tire you can put on the Minnesota 1.0?
A shopper on Apr 20, 2016
BEST ANSWER: A 4.25" tire according to Framed .
Is it possible to order with blue rims?
A shopper on Mar 6, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Not currently on this particular bike.

On the 2.0 you can get blue -
