Description: Framed Minnesota 1.0 Fat Bike - Womens

Built specifically with the female rider at the focus, the Minnesota 1.0 Women's delivers a more comfortable fit and a better ride for female cyclists. The geometry is geared with a shorter top tube which improves control at higher speeds and over rough terrain. This also creates a more comfortable position for the rider. Additionally the handlebars are narrower and the saddle is women's specific. These gender tuned touch points further add to the increased comfort and control of this bike. What we didn't change are the tried and true SRAM and Avid components that make the Minnesota line the highest quality value fat bike in the market. This bike is ready to stand up to everything you can throw at it. No need to conform to clunky bikes that don't fit any longer. Make this Minnesota your next fat bike and you won't regret it.

The women's Minnesota 1.0 may be reasonably priced, but it's definitely not short on quality and performance. The lightweight 6160 alloy frame has a lower stand over and more women specific dimensions for better comfort and handling. SRAM components allow for effortless rides and ultra-responsive shifting.  Avid BB5 mechanical disc brakes provide reliable stopping power in all temperatures and terrain. The single-wall alloy rims are drilled out for excellent strength to weight ratio. Finally, Framed has equipped the new Minnesota 1.0 with 26" x 4" wire bead tires for durability and traction you have to experience to believe. FRAMED added the Velo Plush Women's specific saddle, designed for performance rides with comfort and Framed 680 mm handlebars for a more comfortable reach and superior control.

To top it off we wanted to make a fat bike that was as multi-purpose as possible, with the Framed Fattie Slims™ and Fattie Trail 29er wheel sets. Fattie Slims™ wheel set" is a ready to ride 29er slick wheel set (w/rotors and cassette mounted). The additional wheel set options (Pat.Pending) allow switching from a fat bike to a lighter and faster "29 Fattie Slims™ wheel set" with no tools or mechanical skills. This is also available in a trail style knobby 2.1" tire for single track and trail conditions.

Love this bike.
I love everything about this bike; the color, the size, the price. Shipping was super-fast and it was ready to ride within 10 minutes of opening the box. I got the black/pink one, and the color is fantastic. The only things I changed was replacing the plastic pedals for metal ones, and swapped the stem for an angled one.

Great bike
Bought this for my wife, she loves it, she can make sections she couldn't before on her 26in bike. She loves the white with purple rims, comments everywhere from everyone. Although its entry level components, everything works great. The shifters work well, nice and smooth. The brakes are adequate for stopping my wife. Buying from the house was easy, assembly was easy if you have even limited skill. Get a fat tire bike, they are awesome fun.

Women's framed 1.0
I was impressed with customer support, female tech was a rider and knew exactly how to answer my questions. Delivery was fast and assembly was worth it. I had the bike up and running in less then 10 mins. My wife loved the bike and the hot pink rims. Definitely recommend buying this bike. Great prices for quality bikes!

Joy Ride
Wow! This bike is amazing. I ride it everywhere because it is multi-purpose and comfortable. I love the Fattie Slims on this bike.
The gears were nice, the brakes were efficient, the seat was cozy. Literally, no complaints!
The price is unbeatable, too.

Get the 2.0
The bike is very well made with a decent component selection, however the gearing is not made for anything but road work. This thing desperately needs a 12 -42 in the rear. I ride quite a bit and consider myself a pretty strong woods rider you,LL have a difficult time climbing even the smallest incline with the 1.0. don't make the mistake I made. Get a 2.0. btw bike is set up well by framed and unless you don't know a screwdriver from a wrench assembly is a breeze.

Whats the big difference between the fat bike 1 and 2?
Michelle Y on Jan 4, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Good Question.
The 2.0 and 1.0 will be similar in many ways. The 2.0 will have a few component upgrades, but the largest difference is that the 2.0 will have a shorter top tube creating a slightly smaller cockpit.
I'm 5'2", would the 15 inch be small enough?
Michelle Y on Jan 4, 2015
It would. There are a number of variables to selecting a fatbike, and I would suggest you chat with our bike specialists to get this perfect!
Can I get XWT option for the women's 1.0 version?
A shopper on Mar 19, 2015
There will not be enough space on the 1.0 to accommodate the XWT tires. For more info have a chat with our bike shop: 1 (800) 409-7669. They are a great resource.
why is the 1 less money than the 2 I am 5" 5" and this would be my first fat Bike ,I need a comfy seat,padded handlebars ?ease of use,i like the black/pink color,what does XWT option mean
A shopper on Apr 17, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The Minnesota 1.0 is a 9 speed bike where as the 2.0 is an 18 speed. The Minnesota 1.0 does not come with the women's specific features of the 2.0 but does come in a smaller size to accommodate a shorter stand over height.
Do you have 40 of the Women's 1.0 in stock? Further discount for multi unit order? Working on a women only tour biz:)
A shopper on Sep 22, 2015
We do actually, but by far your best option is to Contact Dana at Framed Bikes.... he is the man who can make anything happen and do it reasonably!! 1 (800) 409-7669. Let me know if you have more questions.
is this bike able to be fitted with the rockshox bluto?
Matt W on Jul 4, 2015

The Minnesota 1.0 is not able to be fitted with the Rockshox Bluto since it does not have a tapered headtube. We have the Minnesota 1.2 available that is capable of running a Bluto fork. The Frame geometry is very similar between the 1.0 and 1.2 as well as the component specs. You can check out the Minnesota 1.2 here if you like
Are the rims 80 mm?
A shopper on Feb 18, 2015
What is the overall weight of the 1.0 womens bike?
Jackster on Dec 13, 2014
Thanks for the question, and I am sorry to delay your answer (we are just now getting clear info on this). The Women's version weighs in at: 33.06 pounds.
I'm 5'7 what size should I get?
Linda W on Sep 9, 2016
I spoke to our bike shop, and at 5'7" the best option is the 17" bike. If you continue to have questions about our bikes, you are welcome to chat with our bike techs: 1 (800) 409-7669.
I'm 5'0 ride a lot - not sure if the 15 is better then the mini -at 13, thoughts i will be riding off rode and maybe some races?
Michelle on Dec 2, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Thanks for the Answers!
Michelle, I spoke to the Framed bike peeps. You could ride the Mini, and while the stand-over might be a little better.... the 15" 1.0 is going to be more comfortable while pedaling especially if you are racing. I think the 15" is the better choice. Feel free to chat with our bike shop (Erick specifically) and they can size you to exactly the right bike: 1 (800) 409-7669.
Does the frame have rack mounts? Kinda looks like there are inserts on the seat stays but can't quite tell.
A shopper on Sep 5, 2017
A: Yes. The Minnesota 1.0 has rack mounts, but you may have to use certain adapters and/or attach the stabilizing bars in different areas depending on the exact rack you are installing and the bike's frame size.
have any refrence code mnframedminnesota1.015 for 650.00 left? i'll buy it now
jerome g on May 26, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Good Day Jerome,
That is about the best deal of the year! I spoke to the Framed guys and we do have a few remaining, but response has been extremely strong. Call: 1 (800) 409-7669 and ask for George Miller specifically. Let me know if you have any trouble, or if you have more questions.
I see in the description that you are also giving fattie slims wheelsets. However, I do not see the slick or knobby option checkbox?
Jeremy F on Aug 18, 2016
The 2017 Minnesota 1.0's will come with a free wheelset. These are not included.
Will the rear derailleur handle a cassette with a 36T gear? If so can your shop change the cassette it at the time of purchase?
A shopper on Dec 28, 2015
The 1.0 can handle a 36T cassette. Wether or not we have one to swap our is subject to availability. Call our bike shop: 1 (800) 409-7669. They can help.
What is the max weight for the person riding the bike?
A shopper on Apr 24, 2015
The Maximum suggested weight for our fatbikes is around 280-300lbs.
I am 5'8" will the 17 inch be tall enough?
Proselie on Apr 18, 2015
BEST ANSWER: At 5'8" you'll be good to go on the Framed Minnesota 1.0 Fat Bike.
What does the $50 charge for your mechanic intale . This is still applicable for delivered bikes not just in-store pickup ?
A shopper on Mar 27, 2015
Sorry to confuse you. All bikes sold in the Showroom are completely built... no charge. If you order a fatbike without the $50 assembly you will get a rather raw bike that will need to have things like the derailleurs aligned, and brakes set-up. The $50 charge will give you a bike that will require only the most minor adjustment and the front wheel assembled.
What are the geometry differences between the Women's 15" Minnesota 1.0 and the Men's 15" Minnesota 1.0? Is there a difference? Is it possible to see the geometry specs of both 15" frames?
A shopper on Feb 6, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The Womens comes in a 15 inch frame and delivers a shorter stand over height on the 17 inch 1.0 as well. You can see all the specs and frame drawings in the links below at
