Pretty solid bike
First off, I live in Alaska and the bike was delivered to my front door 2.5 days after I pressed the order button online. WOW!

Now for the good stuff. I've put this bike to the test the last week and a half and am generally pleased with it's performance. It's weight is right in line with most $1800+ bikes, something I was impressed with due to it's low price. As for size, I'm 5'8" and the 16" small fits me like a glove. With it's short top tube it make rounding sharp turns on some single tracks a breeze. The only issue I have with it's shortness Is that the front of my foot will rub against the front tire when I turn if I don’t have my feet placed properly on the pedals. I don’t usually ride with clip-ins, but I’m thinking about investing in a pair to keep my feet in proper place on this bike.

The first ride I did with the bike was a 26 mile trip. The ride started with a 2000 foot climb up a mountain pass on a wide and very well maintained dirt/rock trail. On this kind of terrain, the tires and performed great. The big negative was that the lower gear chain ring has too many teeth (or is too “big”) for steep or extended climbs. I’ve done this trip before on friends’ fat tires and 29ers without too much difficulty, but the Minnesota 2.0 was HARD on my legs with such a large chain ring. That’s the first thing I’m going to upgrade…
The rest of the trip was mostly downhill, about 4500 feet of downhill. Over the dirt/rock terrain this bike kills it. Its ability to quickly weave between rocks was stellar, very much like riding a 26’er, and the tires were great. Some of the trail was extremely muddy and again, not too much issue with the tires. It’s hard to tell though because just about any tire loses traction when bombing downhill through a giant patch of mud.

We had our first snow here three days ago. I took my bike out at night when there was an icy crust layer on top of the snow and it rode great. This was mostly on flat terrain, but it felt like riding over pavement. I can’t wait to ride this thing through powder! The next day I rode some of the single tracks in town (Kincaid park in Anchorage). Most of the trails were snow packed by the time I got there, so it made for good riding. In general, the bike was sweet. Riding in the snow is like driving in the snow, you need to ride with a little more caution. But not nearly as much caution is needed on a fat bike and the 2.0 handled it well. It didn’t feel much different from the dirt/rock terrain EXCEPT on some of the climbs. On a steep climb, the tires were so-so. They definitely slipped out a few times while all my friends on Surly tires rolled up the hills no problem. I hope upgrading the chain ring will help with this issue because if I stood up in order to stomp down my pedals for extra power on a steep climb they would inevitably spin out when riding up snow. But I only think it will help a little bit, it won’t fix the issue entirely. My next investment would probably be in a new set of tires, but I need to test the current ones out a couple more times before I jump to that conclusion. After all, I’ve only ridden it ONCE in the snow so don’t consider this a final review.

All in all, this bike is amazing considering the price. It’s a good weight, a great frame design, and the components (minus the chain ring) are satisfying. The tires are still in the air for me but chances are I’ll want to upgrade the tires to something that’s stood the test of time. Don’t quote me on that though. Happy riding!

Great bike, crappy tires...
I have a 2014, and overall I have to say it is a good bike. That said, understand that you're going to have to spend $250-300 on new tires because the Vee Missions that came stock on the 2014 are that bad. They're so bad, I don't know how they weren't recalled. I would never buy a tire made by Vee in my life as a result of this experience. It made me almost sell my 2.0 the day I bought it.

The rest of the spec is good for the price. I wish it had a tapered head tube to allow the addition of a Bluto in the future.

Staff Reply:
The Vee Mission is a solid all-around tire that has been used and is still used by many major Fat Bike Brands. However, we understand your frustration and have been working with Framed to offer a more versatile tire upgrade. As such the 2015 Framed Fat Bikes will no longer have the Vee Missions tires. The Minnesota 1.0 and 2.0 bikes now feature the Framed Minnesota 26"x4" tire. We're really excited about the Minnesota tire as it accomplishes what we wanted...a 365 tire for the fat biker that only wants/has one set. For owners of the 2014 Framed Minnesota 1.0 and 2.0, we'll be offering an exclusive deal to upgrade your Missions to the Minnesota tires. These tires will be in stock for aftermarket sales on 12/01/2014

Perfect Bike for Me
I received my 2015 Minnesota 2.0 in early October. I use it for commuting and trail riding. The extra wheel set is great. I have one bike where I would otherwise need two to get me from October to April in northern Minnesota. The wheels change out in under 5 minutes. The gearing goes low to allow any hill or snow depth to be tackled and high enough to get me to work in an average 12 mph with the fatties on. I never would have spent $1500 on fat tire bike. But $900 for a bike that is so versatile is spot on.

Fun bike
I bought this bike and it was delivered the day of our deepest snow storm in Portland. It took maybe a few hours to assemble, I was careful. It went fine. I love the bike and I am 66 years young. I bought it for riding on the beach with my dog. Riding the bike is a lot more work than a mt bike, much more resistance but it ploys thru sand and snow, great fun. Art of what I like is that it works my heart...The price is excellent, I have not seen a comparable fat bike anywhere near the price. Not terribly important to me but the bike looks great, gets a lot of attention. I love the way the colors reflect the sun

Everything everyone said it was and more
This bike is great!

Been riding for 10 days and this bike is perfect for me... after doing a lot of research I was ready to buy online and found through -- living in Minnesota I was able to go to the warehouse and test road a few of the bikes... at 6" I could have gone with the 18 or the 20, but really loved the feel of the 20 and couldn't be happier.

I have had this bike out almost every day since picking it up and what a blast... trails are most flat and partly plowed, and the bike gives you great stability and confidence to ride hard. Note - this is a fat bike and riding really fast is not going to happen, but this bike can corner and the wide tires give great traction..

On single track this bike is great fun! in 3-4 inches of fluffy snow still is great, but note on heavy 3-6 inches crusty snow you will have to work hard and deeper tread would be welcome as I did get slippage.. but that was expected.

Biggest surprise for me was the SRAM shifters - I love the 1 thumb shifting - wearing big mitts is not a problem!...
The disc brakes are also great - very responsive and no problems in the cold weather - several rides at -5F and no issues...

Great bike, Great fun - need I say more?

Good Bike
The 2.0 was my entry into the fatbike world.It's been on over 90% of the rides since I got it in May. Expected it to be an alternate bike but it quickly became my primary ride. Performs very well on tight singletrack. The only hangup (literally) is that a lot of New England singletrack was developed when handlebars were 18" wide. These bars are pushing 30". That being said, the bars are great when railing a berm at speed. Even the Vee Rubber tires, not the greatest, had their moments. The self steer was sometimes an advantage to lock onto a sweeper. I've had the bike on 50+mile railtrail rides and with 10 PSI it rolled with ease. The fork is a mite flexi but but really not bad. I've enjoyed this bike so much that
I sold it...and just ordered the 3.0. you won't regret purchasing the 2.0. A good bike and a good deal.

Great fatbike value
I bought a 2015 in October 2014. I am using it as my winter commuter (about 75 miles per week). I have ridden in rain, mud, slush, rutted ice, and snow and it has been perfect. I'm at about 1,000 miles by now (about 100 of those on dirt trails) and have had zero issues. Oiled the chain every week and wiped off the frame, wheels and rotors from time to time and that's been about it. I'm not sure what I'm missing by going with a budget fatbike but I must not need it. I'm already dreading the thought of putting it away when spring comes.

Made for a Great Winter
The bike got me out of the house last year during the worst recorded Winter ever. I rode down to zero with proper clothing, which included a ski helmet, face mask and ski goggles. Helped me lose 20 pounds and kept me active in the snow and the cold.

The bike is solid, with good components for the price. Handling is good and the fat tires are great in most snow conditions.

After Winter, I put on the 29s and have ridden the bike a great deal this past Summer and Fall. It's comfortable and absorbs shock and bumps well.

More fun than skinny dipping!
Just a brief note before heading to work to let you know what I think of My New Bike (silver and red 18 inch Framed 2.0). I'd of posted sooner, but when I got home last night the first thing I had to do was tear open the boxes and put the new fattie together. Then, I had to take it for a spin. One thing led to another and pretty soon it was almost dark. So back home for a bite of supper before bed. 0330 comes pretty early in the morning on a work day. I'm a sixty something old fat guy who's been mostly road biking since I was in knee pants, and this is the most fun I've on two wheels since that time back in college where a bunch of us decided to go coed skinny dipping by jumping our bikes buckass naked off the top of the local stone quarry. Hey, it was the sixties! I've got to hand it to you at Framed, the 2.0 is a great value in a fat bike. You come in hundreds less than the popular competition and yet there isn't anything out of the box that needs to be replaced right away or that seems like a throw away to meet a price point. Yeah there are more expensive bikes and components out there, but they're just that, more expensive, and from what I've seen your nearest competitors don't offer any better fit, finish or component level. The upscale crowd should be very upset over what they've paid for their bikes! The quality of the frame definitely justifies upgrading later down the road if a person's interests are in that direction. Did I mention fun? (I repeat myself as I grow older). I really thought about a sick day today when the alarm clock went off. Great fun and I know I'm going for a long ride after work again tonight. In fact, my whole weekend just planned itself and I've got a whole summer of single track I want to take the 2.0 on. I'm not sure when I'm going to find the time to try out the spare wheelset, but thanks very much for including it. Maybe I'll put them on for the ride to town to avoid any temptation for the townies to steal my outrageous fat tires and rims. Rough crowd up here in NW Montana. I've already had people stopping their trucks and asking me all about it, or giving me the thumbs up as they drive slowly by, everybody's been commenting on those awesome skins. Definitely going to have to lock this baby up at the store! Got to fly now, but didn't want to wait any longer to let you all know how happy I am with my new bike. It's just like finding that first one under the Christmas tree over 50 years ago! You should sell a bazillion of these. Any plans for a 3.0?

Framed Minnesota 2.0 Fat Bike
I normally never write reviews but this bike is just perfect. I am a avid road, hybrid & mountain biker. My wife and I wanted to try something different and I researched multiple fat bikes and this one is great for the price. The bike handles well I little slow on the handling response but it more than make up for it in soaking up rough terrain. It's smoother than my full suspension bike. The fun factor is off the chart. This bike is well worth the price.

Dennis B on Apr 21, 2017
Did a lot of research and for the money on an entry level fat bike this looked like the best option, best spec. I wished the 18" was available in the 3.0 (wanted a tapered head tube in case I wanted to put a shock on it, but honestly I'm not sure I'm all in on fat biking. I decided if I'm not all in, not to spend a tone of money...fingers crossed it comes in good shape after shipping.
Stephen D on Apr 16, 2017
It is a good bike. Good specs. At a good price. I did a lot of comparative shopping, reviews by customers and reviews by "experts". I wanted a Fat Bike, not an expert bike, but better than a beginner's bike. I did not verify, but other buyers say Framed bikes are made in USA, an added bonus, American mfg.

A good friend had a Framed and really liked it. I was at the Fat Bike Berkie, met Andy (a Framed Bikes rep), was appreciative of his time, information, and Framed hat gifts (all my family members thank him). Because of Andy, my friend, the online assistance (AWESOME), the fact the bike is equipped well, the price, and the incentive 5% off, I finally couldn't say no. Now, I have to tell me wife. Can "Live Chat" assist with that?

STEVE O. on Mar 6, 2017
I am new to fat biking and this is a reasonable affordable option for me to jump in. I like that it's not only made in the USA but made in my home state of MN. I'm always happy to support local/regional businesses. I liked the color options and read many online reviews before deciding this was the right bike for me. A friend of our owns a small skate shop and uses The House often and they came highly recommended.

JOE Z on Dec 8, 2016
I've seen fat bikes around, they look like a lot of fun, and the reviews for this model were very positive. Friends of mine have their road bikes hooked up to trainers, but I just can't see myself doing that. I want to use this bike to maintain, or improve, what fitness I have.
Jackie W on Dec 4, 2016
Got a great black Friday sale as well as cash back from activejunky (12/1/2016). Also found a 5% off code at last minute. Very few negative reviews when searching across the internet. Better than average tires at this price point, so I won't have to replace them right away. I almost went for the Minnesota 3.0 for it's better components, but decided the frame of the 2.0 would probably fit me better with the shorter top tube length. Also the 2.0 comes with pedals;)
Mike F on Dec 1, 2016

I was looking for an entry level fat bike that didn't break the bank. Another consideration was the rack mounts on the frame which were also hard to find on other models. I will be using this for commuting, so will add a fat rack to carry my gear. I was also pleasantly surprised by the color options. I wanted a black / green color combo and that was available in this model.
Michael H on May 19, 2016
Great reviews from multiple websites, personal recommendations from friends who run bike shops in Upper Michigan as well as really good components at this price point.

What are the specs on the Fattie Slims? Any idea how wide the rim is? I'd like to try Surly Knard 29+ on them. thanks!
A shopper on Jan 3, 2014
BEST ANSWER: The Fattie slim wheels have a standard width of 32mm.
Is there a pannier rack that will fit the 2.0?
A shopper on Jul 27, 2014
BEST ANSWER: The Topek 29r Disk rack will fit this bike
I know the tires that come with the bike are 4" wide. What is the maximum tire width that can be run with the Minnesota 2.0 frame?

You can absolutely come in and pick the bike up! We love having people at the shop! We'll put the bike together for you at no additional cost!
Hi...does the 2.0 have 170mm crank arms?
Hkubiak on Aug 27, 2014
BEST ANSWER: No, the 2.0 comes with 175 crank arms. The women's version of the 2.0 does come with 170 cranks.
Do these frames & forks have enough clearance for the really wide 26x4.8" (i.e., Lou, Bud) tires?
A shopper on Jan 15, 2014
BEST ANSWER: The Minnesota 2.0 will fit a 4.8 in the front fork but not in the rear of the frame.
I'm 6' 4" is the 20" frame going to be too small for me?
Dan F. on Dec 15, 2013
BEST ANSWER: The Framed MN 2.0 20" Should be a solid fit for you
The Framed Minnesota 2.0 Fat Bike looks like a great bike at a great price. I am thinking of ordering one, but I am wondering about the shorter top tube (About 3cm shorter than typical geometries). I am wondering how this would fit and ride? I am 5' 10.5" and looking at the 18" frame.
A shopper on Dec 11, 2013
BEST ANSWER: Great question.
I have not been luck enough to test out the bike but those here that have say that the shorter top tube actually positions the rider more over the front wheel...I think that says it best in their review of the Minnesota 2.0. Check it out at
Regarding your height, the 18" would be perfect.
is it possible to customize the colors? For example, could I order the Black and White bike with the orange rims instead of white?
A shopper on Jan 8, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Sorry unfortunately you can not change up any of the colors
What type of suspension fork will this bike accept? Bluto RockShox ?
David T on Apr 26, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I think Bluto is a tapered while this bike has a straight headtube. I believe this means that it can be done, but not without a special adapter that will bring the front of the bike up even higher. Bluto also uses a different hub standard, so the front wheel would have to be rebuilt around a different hub.

I'm hoping that additional fat suspension forks will come out that aren't tapered and take a standard QR axle. I do believe Bikes Direct is coming out with a similarly priced bike that will be more directly compatible with Bluto.
Hey, Can this bike be shipped to Canada? Cost? And what is the difference between the 2.0 version and 1.0 ?
A shopper on Jan 8, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Yes we can ship the Framed Minnesota to Canada. Please check out our Canadian shipping page at

The difference between the two bike is the 2.0 version comes with a double chainring crank, a front derailluer, and shifter.
Do either the 1.0 or 2.0 have eyelets on the frame and fork for mounting fenders?
J B on Jan 2, 2014
BEST ANSWER: The Framed MN line does not have braze on's for fenders, but the Mud Shovel fender works better then all fenders and that is a strap on design
Do you ship to Canada?
A shopper on Oct 8, 2014
What is the size of the cranks?
charles P on Dec 6, 2013
BEST ANSWER: The Crank Size on the Framed MN 2.0 is 170mm
Will a child trailer (ex:Burley d'lite or solo) attach to the Minnesota 2.0? If yes, will the attachment point need to be modified?
A shopper on Jan 19, 2014
BEST ANSWER: That's a great question. I am not 100% sure if the Framed Minnesota will except a child trailer, but from the looks of it and attaching 100's of trailers to other mountain bikes with close to the same frame drop out shape, i do believe it will be possible with out modification. I will have to get back to you on this one.

Will this bike take 4.8 inch wide tires?
Wade G on Mar 1, 2014

I, coincidentally asked the same question before ordering my bike. I was told that the bike would not accommodate larger tires. When I received the bike, I checked the relationship of the tires to their surrounding structures. The front fork may be able to handle the extra width but the rear triangle will not.
I have taken the bike out in the snow and it rides well in snow that is a few inches deep with a solid base. I've attempted riding through deeper snow with little success, however I don't think that an extra half inch on the tire would make a difference in very deep snow. I can not comment on sand riding as I have not attempted to do so yet. I do plan to do a lot of beach riding when the weather permits.
Overall, I am very happy with this bike. It is a great value for the price and with the offer of a second set of tires for no extra charge it would be hard to beat.
My suggestion is, take the bike to your local bike shop and ask them what they think about the wider tire. You may be able to use a 4.8" tire on the front while keeping the 4" tire in the rear, though as stated above, I don't think that the extra half inch or so is going to make a big difference.
I hope that this helps!

Can I get an 18 in. in white and orange?
A shopper on Aug 7, 2014
BEST ANSWER: They have the silver and red one available in 18", so I don't see why not. I'd call the 1-800 number listed at the top of the website - the 18" not being listed here may just be an oversight that they'd gladly fix if they knew.

Can you get the bike with a taller bmxstyle handlebar?
A shopper on Apr 11, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I am sure you can contact the House and ask them if they will install before shipping, but I kinda doubt it. I am guessing these come from manufacturer all prepped' for shipping. The house merely takes the box and sends, then it's up to you to take to LBS for basic assembly. That being said, if the bmx style handle bar you want will fit the stem or you can change the bits out, you could probably make it fit. Be aware this is a threadless fork and stem setup, which is pretty common on most newer bikes; I am not that familiar with BMX setups, but if nothing else, just change the handlebars for something you like, that should be easy enough. Just keep in mind you might have to change out the cables since they might end up being short.

I like it as is..I get killer looks on all the trails..
The 28/38 chainrings with a 34 biggest cog seem a little highly geared for a heavy bike on the hills around here. Can I replace the rings with a 22/32? What's the bolt pattern? Thanks!
gary j on Mar 17, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Hi Gary, the chainrings are definitely replacable. This summer I took the bike completely apart and took some pictures, including the crank arm with chainrings attached to it with 4 equally spaced bolts (quad pattern). I rode my bike to work this summer with some moderate hills. Never even had to use the smaller chainring. I used the road tires, by the way that came with is as an extra. It's an awesome bike.
