Description: Framed Minnesota 2.0 Fat Bike - Womens

Built specifically with the female rider at the focus, the Minnesota 2.0 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.

So what makes it so female specific? For starters, the 15" or 17" frame with lower standover makes for the ultimate in comfort and stability. Second, Framed shortened the handlebar length to give you that ergonomically correct positioning. Oh, third, we threw on a comfortable seat so your bum won't hurt. Ride hard and remain comfortable with the Minnesota 2.0!

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.

My cup of tea
I have ridden a handful of men's fat bikes over the year but never owned one. I also know several happy Minnesota 2.0 owners. So when the women's was available I jumped on it right away and I'm glad I did because it looks like they sold out right way. Sizing, seat, colors, and the tires are spot on. I've had the bike for a couple weeks now and I've been riding it as much as I can. It's great on trail, gravel and I'm really looking forward to these tires in snow. Happy camper here!

Great bike, great price
Let's face it- fat bikes are pretty low tech. No techie suspension, just big ass tires that go anywhere. So there is no reason to spend 4-6 grand for a bike that has carbon fiber frame, when the weight is all in the tires. This bike has been a dream for me- bought one used in Colorado Springs, then bought one new from The House for my wife this Christmas. We both love our bikes- they go ANYWHERE, and I do mean that- snow, mud, gravel, steep trails- it is the Sherpa of bikes. Highly recommended.

First off, I ordered this bike on a Sunday and received it in the mail 2 days later! I debated on which frame size to get and ended up with the 17 inch frame which fit me perfect since I am 5'6". Don't get me wrong, I'm historically clumsy on a bike (usually crash every ride from trying to go big) but this bike has opened a world of balance for me. One can literally ride over anything with a fat bike, and this Framed company is the best place to start out. Don't second guess this purchase, get this bike now and you'll have a shit-eatin' grin on your face YEAR-ROUND!

Fun, smooth, and sharp looking. I've had this bike for a few weeks. Love it. Been out riding single track as much as possible and it rides just as well as a bike you'd pay 2500 for. I've borrowed and road other bikes before and the 2.0 is just as nice for half the price. Can't beat that. Added on some bar mitts for warmth and already signed up for my first fat bike race. A great bike to jump right into the sport. No need to look further. I am 5"4 and have the 15inch white/blue. So sharp!

Great bike and great service!
Let me start off by saying what great customer service and support I received from "The House". I had a few questions and when I emailed them, they responded within minutes on several occasions. Very prompt. Also, the bike shipped 2 weeks earlier than their date stated on my order confirmation. I would highly recommend doing business with them.

Now, about the bike. I absolutely LOVE it! It looks fantastic. Whenever I ride it people stop and stare at it because it is so beautiful. The components are nice, not top of the line but well worth the value. You can't beat this bike for the money. I am one happy, satisfied customer, of both The House and Framed.

Framed Minnesota 2.0
Actually I would give the Minne 2.0 a 4.5 rating. It weighed in at 33.7 pounds and looks very sharp. Comparing all Minne 2.0 measurements against my 15" frame Gravity I found that the claims of 15" frame- WSD were accurate and were more suited to my wife's 5'4 frame than the small Surly she had ridden. Minimal assembly was required and Cheryl assembled it herself with only a little instruction on tweaking the rear disc brake. The rear wheel had a detectable space across the rim however, my friend that has run his bike shop for 20+ years, gave it a thumbs-up for safety and durability. He was also quite impressed with the bang-for-the-bucks.
Yes, I recommend this bike.

Womens framed Minnesota 2.0
I received my bike within 4 days of ordering which I thought was excellent. Putting the bike together was easy. Brakes needed to be adjusted slightly. On my first ride, I noticed the shifter cable binding, so I lubricated it & worked beautifully. Overall, the bike is awesome, even after almost a month & around a dozen rides in. I'm giving it 4 out of 5 because the pedals could be better, although they are adequate.

I was super excited to find the Minnesota online and was not disappointed when she arrived. The weather in Western PA has been snowy like most of the country and this bike plows through. Very happy with my purchase. Thanks!

Great Value -- Great Bike!
I just got done assembling my wife's blue/white Framed Minnesota 2.0 Womens 2015 fat bike. Great job once again by the FM people. We shouldn't be surprised -- this is our third FM fat-bike, but I'm impressed by what a great value these bikes are especially at this price-point. The frame is rock solid and there is nothing on this bike that is a throw-away or needs to be replaced right away.

I'll leave the test ride report to my wife, but if it hadn't gotten dark so early she'd probably still be riding it right now. So I've got a question -- how come my bikes have to stay out in the garage but it's OK for her's to be parked in the living room?

Once again Framed Minnesota has hit one out of the park! Highly recommended.

Framed 2.0
To start with I think this is a decent bike, when you consider the price compared to other similar Fat Bikes its a fantastic Bike.
Everything was well adjusted right out of the box and it was evident that this bike was alot lighter and more nimble than others I've ridden in the "under $2000.00 range", Since I had alot of higher end parts on hand I did alot of upgrades which can be seen here >> <<
The bike is now at 30lbs 12oz down from the original 34+ lbs. it did not take alot to turn it into a Super nice bike and still at less cost by far than others equally equipped.
My Opinion is- If you want to try a Fat Bike you cant go wrong here, nice out of the box and highly upgradeable for reasonable costs.You do actually get what you pay for with this bike.
Customer service is outstanding from "The House" and I would not hesitate to make another purchase.

Bike reviews I read were all positive. Thought this will be a great beginner bike for my wife without breaking the bank. Optional mounting of Fattie Slims for paved rail trail riding sealed the deal.

Great reviews, build for women, and REALLY want to be able to bike in the winter. :D

Vickie H on Feb 17, 2016

Can't touch a similar bike for the price. Live in Alaska....this very well maybe a year around bike for me! :) I feel terrible about not supporting an AK fat bike builder but the cheapest new fatty would still be at least300 more expensive (and not be delivered to my door, and not have a second set of wheels and tires). Love the bright blue wheels; please make matching Poggies (Gauntlets) for it! Looking fwd to testing this bad girl out!

What is the stand over height on the women's 15" frame?
A shopper on Oct 1, 2014
BEST ANSWER: The top tube is sloped, so right in front of the saddle, it is about 28-30"
How true are the back order ship dates? Is that a guarantee or a guess?
A shopper on Dec 1, 2014
This is an important question. First the Women's MN 2.0 is not back ordered currently. The back order dates are educated guesses... not guarantees. Especially with the new Framed Fat bikes there a number of variables that are effecting shipping. In the end, Know that these guys are working extremely hard to get all of these products shipped as fast as humanly possible. If you call our Framed guys... they may be able to tighten up that ship date for you. 866-243-6932
Let me try this again. Does the frame have brazeons for a rear rack?
A shopper on Nov 21, 2014
Sorry to delay your answer. The Framed Minnesota Bikes do and will have a the ability to have rear racks mounted to them.
Is there room for a larger tire on the front? What size is the headtube?
A shopper on Oct 5, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Shopper - the Minnesota 1.0 and 2.0 series are built around the 4.0" tire, but something larger *might* fit. You may have to experiment with that! If you do find something bigger that fits, let the world know on the Facebook "Framed Minnesota Fat Bikes" page! You might also want to post a question to see if anyone else has tried!
Hope that helps!
can i raise the handle bars up some and if so how?
john j on Feb 15, 2016
BEST ANSWER: To raise the original handle bar, you could install a new bar stem with a higher degree of rise than the original stem. You could also install another front fork with a longer steering tube, and add the appropriate number of spacers to create the desired bar height. The best approach may be to consider installing another bar with the appropriate rise. And if that doesn't create the desired height....change out the original stem for one that yields additional height as well. Based on the bar height you prefer, check out various bars and stems that are available. I'm sure you can find a bar, or combination bar and stem, that works for you.
I'm 5'3 with a 28-29 inch inseam. What would be the best size bike for me in the framed 2.0?
bethie on Sep 28, 2015
BEST ANSWER: My wife is similar in size and the smallest frame size men's 2.0 fit her well. I'm 5'10" with a 31" inseam and the medium 2.0 is almost too tall for comfortable stand-over height.

But she likes her women's-specific 2.0 even better!

Hope this helps.
Does it have rack mounts?
A shopper on Nov 20, 2014
BEST ANSWER: The bike does not come with, or include rack mounts. I bought two, the 18" and the 15" models, and separately purchased a Thule hitch rack moun for the two bikest. A separate kit is available to upgrade this rack system to accommodate the 4" size tires......great bikes at a great price!
My GF is 5'7" with about a 34 inseam. Pretty long legs :) Will she be setter suited with the 17" or is the 15" good enough for her? Thanks
A shopper on Nov 24, 2014
BEST ANSWER: The 15" would be fine and I always suggest the smallest frame that fits you. There is plenty of seat-post for 34" inseam. Off-Road frames are generally fit smaller than road bikes. A lot of Off-Road riding is out of the saddle.
Is the 15" women's purple/black available now? It seems to be listed as back ordered.
amy w on Dec 6, 2014
The 15" in Black and Purple is backordered, and the posted date is correct :1/15/15. We have a VARY limited number of the white 15's, and both colors of the 17". This is as of 11:30am 12/8/14. They will not last long at all.
What is the stand over height of the 15" frame?
A shopper on Sep 16, 2014
BEST ANSWER: the stand over height of the minnesota 2.0 15" is about 30.5"
What is the best size fat tire bike for a women 5'8"?
A shopper on Dec 31, 2014
BEST ANSWER: At 5'8" it is questionable that a WSD is necessary. After measuring my wife's wsd to my "men's" bike there was really only a minimal difference. For a woman 5'4" this was significant.
If your body is proportional you should fit the small frame just fine. The smaller frame is most appropriate for off-road bikes. This is a pretty cool bike and a good value at this price. It weighed in at 33.7 lbs, which is not bad at all. My wife assembled it out of the box and we only had to tweak the rear disc as it was on the frame appropriately. Happy riding, Ian
Looking for a fat bike for my girlfriend. She is 5'6" with a shorter than average inseam. Would I want to get the 15" or 17"? I feel like 16" would be best, but it's not available.
Sam B on Jan 20, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I would recommend the 15"

These run a little large and it is best to go a size down due to height, especially when riding in snow.
I'm 5'1 would size 15 work for me ?
Nancy G on Apr 28, 2016
For most people at your height, the MN 2.0 15" is the best option..... and works quite well. I do know some people that are right at 5' that have gone with the Mini-Sota, and been quite happy:
What about fitting fenders? Don't these tires throw up a lot of goo?
A shopper on Nov 2, 2014
BEST ANSWER: When I ride off-road I expect to get dirty and if I ride in the rain, I expect to get wet. Besides, wet & dirty looks really cool !!! I would only go to fenders if you are using your fat-bike as a commuter and you do not carry a change of clothes.
What's different between 1.0 and 2.0?
shelly on Apr 2, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The 1.0 is a 1x9, the 2.0 is a 2x9; check the other specs too. I bought the women's 2.0 last year and love it! I definitely need the 2x for riding lots of hills.
Are the fattieslims wheels still included?
A shopper on Oct 5, 2014

Thanks for the Answers! For a time during the Introduction of the Framed Minnesota Series Bike the Slim tires were included as a sort of promotion of the bike. So Ben and Christina were correct. However, if you look at the bottom of the web page you will see that the slims are now offered as a $99.00 add on option. This is for both the 2014 and 2015 Minnesota.

My wife has a 27in inseam and looking for a fat bike that she can get on and off easily ..... Does anyone make such a thing????
A shopper on Jan 21, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The Framed Minnesota series smallest frame currently comes in a 15" Frame with a 27" Stand Over Height. There are some shorter ladies who have chosen the 24" Framed Mini-Sota which comes with 24" tires and a 25.5" stand over height.
When will either 15" bike be back in stock?
Allison J on Apr 22, 2017
BEST ANSWER: My understanding after speaking with someone directly in customer service is that they are likely not going to be back in stock. The 2.2 is replacing the 2.0; and the 1.2 is replacing the 1.0. Hope this helps!
Can I put an RST fork on this thing?
Nick A on Mar 5, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Give us a call and ask for our bike shop guys: 1 (800) 409-7669
What is the weight of the women's 15" bike?
A shopper on Oct 1, 2014
Can you make any changes to this bike before placing an order? Looking for bar shifter and a fork with a suspension.
Lisa K on Sep 9, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Most of the folks on the Framed Minnesota FatBike fan page (over on Facebook) are adding these options after they buy them. I don't think Framed has a suspension fork for the 2.0 yet, but rumor has it that they are working on make the Bluto from the Alaskan compatible or something like it. We'll see! At this time I don't think there's anything for the 2.0. I've seen some people convert a Lefty suspension for them (in photographs).
Hi. Is it possible to put a wider tire onto this bike? I see it has 4" in the description, I was thinking about 4.6" for the heavy winter conditions I ride in...Can I do it?
Bobbi on Aug 28, 2014
BEST ANSWER: the biggest tire that will fit on the Minnesota 2.0 15" is 4.0"
How much assembly is necessary?
A shopper on Nov 9, 2017
These bikes will arrive about 3/4 assembled. There is some assembly required, but even more important all the components will need to be aligned and adjusted.... that can be a little tricky. We suggest you have a licensed bike tech finish the assembly.... failure to do so can void your Framed warranty.
Electric assist? Anyone converted 2 or 2+ to electric assist?
mike p on Oct 29, 2017
Been a while! For the moment Framed does not have any e-assist info for their fatbikes... officially these bikes are not designed for electric assist conversions. I will, however, see if the Framed guys have anything new on-deck.
Can you get this 2.0 in a 15" in the white with blue?
A shopper on May 9, 2017
I apologize.. no. I just checked with the Framed peeps, and they are making some changes to their Minnesota series bikes. We cannot reorder these exact bikes.
looking for the white and purple 2.0 women's in 15", not available, when are you getting more?
A shopper on Apr 26, 2017
I spoke with the Framed guys and this bike will not be restocked. I apologize. Please consider a different color in your size.
Hey I was looking at the framed minnesota 2.0 womens bike, I'm questioning my sizing. I'm 5'-0" with a 27" inseam would the 15" frame suit me or will it be too big? Thanks
Breanne D on Sep 5, 2016
I just spoke to the Framed guys, and they thought the 15" version of the 2.0 will be the best for you.
Hi I want to buy the Minnesota 2.0 womens bike....I am a little under 5'8 and have a 30" inseam. I was going to get the 17"...would that be the right size?
Christa L on Jul 25, 2016
The 17" is indeed the right frame for you!
