Description: Framed Minnesota 3.0 Fat Bike

The Framed Minnesota 3.0 symbolizes the pinnacle of evolution of the Minnesota fat bike series.  Adopting the best features from its earlier brethren, the Minnesota 1.0 and 2.0, the 3.0 combines the affordability Framed Bikes is known for with the most desirable fat bike attributes. The Minnesota 3.0 is the most capable and advanced bike in the Minnesota line.  This bike utilizes a cross country mountain biking geometry to put the rider in a position to achieve the most leverage and power over the bike while keeping a comfortable position.  Front 150mm and rear 190mm hub spacing offers the versatility to run up to 4.7" tires while also providing a strong and stable platform to increase power transfer and control.

The Minnesota 3.0 frame has a tapered headtube, which serves multiple purposes.  First and foremost, the tapered head tube provides a wider steering base which improves control, cornering ability, and overall power transfer. Pressure and force is more evenly distributed using a larger base for the head tube-fork interface.  Second, the tapered head tube allows the rider to upgrade to the latest and greatest forks on the market, including the Framed Carbon fork, Lauf Carbonara, RST Renegade, and Rockshox Bluto.  The control aspects combined with the ability to run multiple fork options makes this Minnesota the obvious trail-slaying fat bike choice.      

This ground pounder starts with a 6061 oversized Aluminum alloy frame set for high intensity riding, but yet light enough to maintain pin-point maneuverability.  The Minnesota 3.0 has an upgraded SRAM X7 2x10 drivetrain for even more range and climbing ability as well as stopping power from Avid BB7 mechanical disc brakes with 160mm rotors.  The hubs and bottom bracket are sealed for a clean dependable roll.  Traction is brought to you by the Framed Minnesota 4" 120 tpi folding bead tires with lightweight tubes.  The result of this great combo is a true, take-it-anywhere, do-anything fat bike that won't break your piggy bank!

nice bike
Bike came with rear wheel in the frame. After attaching handle bars, no adjustment of rear derailer was necessary. I'm 6'4", inseam about 35", i ordered the 22" 3.0. I'm happy with the fit, standing over i still have two inches of clearance. This bike comes with attach points for two water bottles. Lucky for me tires came installed and inflated. Because i didn't own a presta gauge or pump. On my shake out ride a pedal came loose, I reinstalled using locktite. Tough going through 6 inches of snow; 2-3" not too bad. You need metric allen wrenches to assemble, bike came with two. But, you'll need 3mm and 6mm for front wheel. Love these new shifters, too easy. Sealed bearings all around. Haven't ridden it much yet, overall pleased with the quality, components.

Just what I was looking for!
I live in north central Florida in the Ocala National Forest. With almost 400,000 acres with probably hundreds of miles of dirt roads to ride literally right out my front door, there is every type of surface you can think of. From solid packed dirt and rock as hard as concrete to what we call in Florida "sugar sand" that on my normal off road bike I have to dismount and walk through it. With close to 100 miles on my Minnesota 3.0 Fat Tire bike, I have yet to have to get off and push it through the soft sand. The 4" wide tires just float right over it with solid steering control! Plus the terrain is very rolling. Up one hill and down the other. Some are pretty severe once you add the super soft sand. The gearing on this bike is perfect. I made it up one of the worst, steep and ankle deep sand without standing to pedal, and I'm 63 years old! I wished I had found this bike years ago! Before I bought this I went to a local shop that had one brand name fat tire bike with almost identical components as this, seriously, almost IDENTICAL, except their bike had the brakes by the same company only they were hydraulic, not cable. $1900.00 dollars! Whoa!
Listen, if you're thinking about buying a Fat Tire, do yourself a favor and look at the Framed Minnesota 3.0. You will not be disappointed. I'm not.
Oh, also, I bought the black (flat) frame with red wheels....killer looking bike! If your not a bike mechanic, pay the $50 and have them assemble and adjust everything, I did. Bike came fast and I had it together out of the box and riding in less than 10 minutes.

I received mine about a week ago and have since put about 50 miles on it in a variety of conditions - wet, dry, and different types of snow. So far it has handled the different conditions well with only tire pressure changes needed. It has been great since the moment I opened the box. Took very little time to assemble and had two good surprises - came with pedals and two attachments points for water bottles, I was only expecting the one. Overall a great bike at a great price.

I actually bought this bike for my girlfriend and she just rode it for the first time and says she loves it. She was riding in the snow and sand down by the river and says it floats on top making it seem effortless to ride. It was easy to put together and make minor adjustments on the brakes even if you have little experience working on bikes. I would recommend this bike, especially if you are just starting out. Hard to beat for the price.

Tons O' Fun
Went to The House intending to purchase a 2.0 with an additional set of wheels but Erik suggested the 3.0 due to my height - 6'3". About the same price as the 2.0 with the extras.
I have ridden bikes for over 50 years - Racing Bikes, Hybrid Bikes and most recently a nice Mountain Bike with front suspension and a hard tail, enjoying each style for their particular performances.
Hopped on my 3.0, rode to the local single track and within 10 minutes hit a tree with the end of the handle bar, cut my leg up a bit, got back on the trail and rode it hard for the next 60 minutes.
Rode it the 5 miles back home, uphill most of the way on a paved trail. Not as much fun as the single track.
Got home full of sweat and dirt. My wife bandaged up the superficial wounds and noticing the smile on my face asked me when I was going out to the trail again. Not one to waste time..... Out I went!

solid, love everything but graphics
Love the MN3.0! I'm usually on a single speed 29er in the warmer months of MN, but absolutely needed a new winter routine to get off my butt. 3.0 seems to have done the trick, it performs well on the trails like Lebanon Hills. Definitely a different riding experience than a 29er SS, this is a low cost way to get in on the fun with a fairly light bike that has workable components with a little dialing in.

Cool Bike, some difficulty.
At first try the bike is cool. During assembly the front axle thru bolt would not release. The 8 mm head was damaged. I finally managed to remove the thru bolt and found the threads damaged. I cleaned the threads and chased out the other end. I cleaned the Allen head socket so it would accept a wrench.I was then able to install the thru bolt. I would like to have a new bolt.

Otherwise the assembly was straight forward and first test ride was great.

It's a monster!!!
I received my Fat Framed Minnesota about 3 weeks ago. I didn't have the opportunity to fully assemble it until a few days ago. I was pleased immediately with the overall appearance of the bike. I ordered the flat black frame with the red rims. It looks great! I had it fully assembled in 10 minutes. It is totally worth the extra money to have the bike assembled at the shop since the gearing, cables, etc can be a bit tricky & sensitive. I rode it immediately after assembling it & bedded the brakes in. After 20 or so minutes the brakes were about perfect. The tracking will take a little getting used to unless you're already used to riding a Fat tire bike. Otherwise it is a bit of a shock at first. Rode through my neighborhood to get a good feel for the bike & was bombarded by friends & neighbors wanting to see what the heck I was riding. This thing is a beast & the gearing is perfect so far........hill climbing is a piece of cake due to the gearing as well. I am very pleased with this purchase...the only thing I am a little disappointed in is that it didn't come with pedals......but that was my lack of reading the full specs. I had to bogart a pair of pedals from another fat tire bike that I'm not currently riding. Overall though, this bike has not disappointed me yet. Go get yourself one....or 4. :)

It is a Fat Bike
Our group is near 30 riders. I got my 3.0 last winter just before the heavy North East Snows. Since then 8 of our 30 have fat bikes. This fully rigid is just fine for some of the nastiest trails we have here in the North East. I have ridden all over this country, and nothing compares to the rugged and technical trails here in the North East. This bike handles it all...! The 3.0 has the upgraded SRAM components which is important. You need good breaks for these large wheels. This bike is not for road riding, trails ONLY

Mike P on Mar 30, 2017
I have done research online for a couple of weeks now. Based on my understanding of fat bike construction (e.g. aluminum alloy components vs. steel components, tube angles, the reviews I have read (e.g. Singletracks) and comments from other riders on blogs, I concluded that the Framed Minnesota 3.0 Fat Bike was the best purchase I could make for a bike under $1000.

Badger B on Jan 8, 2017
my first fat bike seemed like a quality bike with decent components it was on sale and discounted other similar bikes were twice as much and it appeared to have really good reviews
Ernest R on Jan 8, 2017
Excellent price to get into Fat bikes with a better than beginner build, good reviews out there, have friends with a similar Minnesota (2.0) that love it. Selection at the time was great as well. Bit disappointed they were excluded from the free shipping as other sites of the entry level bikes offer it free (almost went with alternative as a result).
TR on Jan 7, 2017

Allan R on Dec 2, 2016
Great reviews. Awesome looking bike. I'm looking forward to loose some extra pounds I have... lol
AL O on Sep 17, 2016
I chose the Minnesota 3.0 over the 2.0 because of the higher level of components, and the ability to upgrade the front fork to a Rockshox Bluto. The frame is also wider allowing an upgrade to a wider tire. This bike seems to be the best value compared to other fatbikes with similar specs and components. The listed weight is also around 4-5lbs lighter than similar bikes, which is great.
christopher j on Feb 9, 2016
The 2.0 I would have preferred was sold out and the additional 5% off helped me move up to the next level fat bike.

I have been waiting for this!! What is the stand over for the 18" vs the 20"? Also any word on a slim set for these beasts?
Ryan O. on Jul 29, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Hey Ryan - Glad you are excited! The stand over for the 18" is about 31.5" at about 4 inches in front of the nose of the saddle. At this time we do not have plans for a fattie slims wheelset, but keep checking in as that may change
Thanks for the question!
What is the Weight limit?
A shopper on May 2, 2015
I double check with Framed, and they claim that 280lbs to 300 lb is the ceiling for the Minnesota Series bikes.
Are you planning to have fatty slims for the 3.0?
Jerry on Jun 19, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Hey Jeremiah,

I haven't heard if we will be offering a fattie slims wheelset that will fit the Minnesota 3.0. If you have a chance to give our bike shop a call at 800-992-7245 they may know if we'll be getting some in or have something similar.
For a few extra dollars is it worth getting the 3.0 vs the 2.0? I'm looking for a long term bike, I'm not growing anymore and am looking for a quality bike.
Justin on Jan 24, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Both won't dissapoint. The only advantages that you'll get out of the 3.0 is the tapered head tube which accepts the Bluto suspension fork and the bigger hubs which can accept wider tires. If small things like that don't affect you or how you ride then the 2.0 is a great option. I love the 3.0 to tinker with since I can do so much with it and I'm not limited on some of the things. If you can find a LBS that has both in stock try them out. The 2.0 does have a shorter top tube and I felt kinda scrunched. So I bought the 3.0 that has a longer top tube. I ride a Small and I'm 5'6"
Hi , I am interested in a fat bike. Can someone advice as to what are the differences between the minisota bike and the alskan bike ? which one would feed more to single trail riding and would feel better ?
Dror B on Jan 2, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The Minnsesota 3.0 and the Alaskan Alloy have a lot of differences and there for will offer a much different riding experience. The Alaskan Alloy delivers a much more trial oriented frame, a 1x10 drivetrain and not braze ons for any sort on panniers except for the rear. The Minnesota 3.0 having a longer and more traditional geometry it will lend itself to be a great bike for extended excursions and trekking. Also the 3.0 accommodates front and rear rack mounts for gear and equipment.
I am trying to determine which bike, and which features would be best for me. I plan to ride almost exclusively in winter, on snow, and likely more on streets and roads than trails (alternate days to winter running in Canada ). I am 6' with a 32" inseam. I might consider some summer riding, but then I'd combine trail and street. Is the 3.0 or 2.0 a better choice? Alaskan? Carbon front worth it? Tire choice? I would likely keep my bike for a very long time. My winter runs usually take me out for an hour or two...riding likely about the same. Tips or suggestions?
A shopper on Apr 3, 2015
You ask fantastic questions, and I want to get you answers. For an in-depth discussion please chat with our bike specialists: 1 (800) 409-7669. Craig from Framed: " The entire line up from the MN 1.0 all the way to the Alaskan Carbon would work for you. This really will depend on how much you want to spend and how aggressive of a rider you are. The MN 3.0 is a great mid point bike that can do it all... while the Alaskan bikes are going to be the peak of performance. The 1.0 and 2.0 bikes are outstanding cruise around bikes at a grand price point, but carry a little extra weight. They are all fun."
What are the differences between in frame geometry of the 1.0, 2.0 and 3.0? Are where does the Alaskan fall in to the spectrum?
Travis G on Feb 3, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The Mn 1.0 has a longer top tube which is more traditional and more comfortable for relaxed longer riders or riders with longer arms. The 2.0 has a very short top tube making it very nimble and agile while riding trails. It also places the rider over the back tire more for better traction while climbing. The 3.0 is a hybrid of the 2.0 and 1.0 as far as geo but the 3.0 has a tapered headtube which fits the AK Carbon Fork and The RockShox Bluto Fork. The Alaskan is a race and trail performance bike that has a lower stand over height and a wider wheel base which allows the bike to travel at higher speeds and take on more technical obstacles while on a single track mountain bike trail.
Will 3.5" tires fit on the 3.0 rims?
A shopper on Aug 12, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Hello, I decided to go for it and put 3.5" wide tires on the 3.0. I want to have a hard pack/road worthy tire for summer riding. Since it's a road tire, the fit is pretty good. Makes the bike a lot faster and I don't chew up the snow tires on the pavement. I wouldn't recommend the 3.5 if you use a more aggressive tread tire. The tires are Origin8 Captiv8er UL 120tpi 26x3.5. Thanks
does this 3.0 come with pink rims?
Muffy on Mar 21, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Mine is the black version with metallic red rims. I don't think I would call them pink.
Do you have this on red/grey or orange?
A shopper on Dec 15, 2014
BEST ANSWER: At the current time we only have Black/Blue & Black/Red available.
I normally ride a 19 or 20 with an ETT around 24" - 24.5". I am 6'2" with a 34" inseam. What size should I get?
Robbe S on Dec 1, 2014

with your size and inseam going with a 20" Minnesota 3.0 is going to fit the best.
How big is the seat and is it comfortable?
A shopper on May 31, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The seat that came with the bike is very small. I replaced it with a bigger seat being that I am 265lbs. It was a small price to pay. I can't say enough good about the rest of the bike.
Is there a quick release option for the front wheel?
Brad R on Apr 5, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Sorry for the delayed response. You may be able to buy an aftermarket axle that wouldn't require you to carry a hex tool. Haven't tried it myself, but there are some options out there. You'd have to get the axle length correct, and the thread pitch correct on the aftermarket axle.
Can I get a 3.0 with red wheels?
A shopper on Mar 28, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I asked this as well. Never got a reply back. I ordered the white Frame with blue wheels. I will say that I could not be happier. Bike has been great and spent a lot of time on it this winter.
What size petals do I need for a 3.0?
A shopper on Apr 16, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The Minnesota Fat Bikes all use 9/16 pedals. The Minnesota 3.0 does not come with pedals included. The most common pedals that customers buy with the bike ( Any of The Alaskan Pedals) range from $69.95 - $79.95
i am 5 11' what size will work best? thanks
A shopper on Mar 30, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I'm 5'10" and the large frame is perfect. Great bike as well! Have ridden extensively on snow and dirt... couldn't be happier.
How is the 3.0 frame different than the 2.0?
A shopper on Jun 26, 2016
Thanks for the answers. One of the most important thing to consider, along with the rest of these answers, is that the 3.0 has a tapered headtube. This allows the user to switch to a carbon or suspension fork, and will make the 3.0 a little more versatile than the 2.0.
Can an electric engine put on this bike?
Michael M on May 18, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Hi Michael,
You could put an electric engine on this bike... there are many types out there. However, they place unique stress on a bike, so I would not recommend it.... and it would certainly void the bikes warranty.
Can you put two waterbottles on the 3.0?
hotdoghimself on Nov 11, 2014
BEST ANSWER: The 3.0 has two sets of tapped holes for water bottle holders, pumps etcetera.
Buyer this bike for my 6 year old. Should I get 18 or 20 inch and allow him to just grow into the bike since it's so expensive?
Ted-ro on Feb 3, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I think you might be confusing the frame size with wheel size. The Wheel size is 26”. I am 5’9” with a 30” inseam and I bought the 18” size. The smaller Famed fat bike is the Mini-Sota with 24” wheels and has a 25.5” stand-over height. The Mini-Sota is made for youth and adults between 4'6" and 5'4", So unless you have a very tall 6-year old, I advise you to look else-wear. There are several fat bikes with 20” wheels out there on the market.
Want to know it the 3.0 can have a 4" tires?
Hotel on Feb 20, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes the Framed Minnesota 3.0 Fat Bike has 4" tires.
Can the 3.0 frame handle an XWT (4.8") later, or do you need to buy the XWT frame to accommodate a tire over 4"?
Jon L on Nov 27, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Same frame. XWT just comes with the 4.7" tire.
i weigh 280 lbs any problem?
stan r on Apr 19, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I'm 300 lbs, and I love the MN 3.0! I haven't had any issues.
HOw heavey is it i have a 4 flight of stairs to go up everyday?
ellins d on Aug 14, 2015
It is 32 lbs and 3 oz. Not bad!
Can these bikes be ridden on the street for daily use?
A shopper on May 5, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes it can.
The stock Framed 26" x 4" 120 TPI tires will reduce your street performance a bit, but the bike is not obscenely heavy and it is well built. In the near future a 29er wheelset compatible to the 3.0 will be available making this an all season, all terrain destroyer!
hi , i am 8"10', what size should fit me ?. normally Medium on mountain bike
Dror B on Nov 30, 2014
Assuming that you're 5'10" vs 8'10". You're right on the fence. If you want something more jumpy and aggressive go with 16 and if you want something more cross country feel or more stability at higher speeds go with the 18.
Will the fatty slim tire set work on this bike like the 2.0 version? If will i need special tools?
joseph on Jan 15, 2017
Sorry to delay you. From Framed bikes: "This bike can accommodate a fattie slim wheel set. You will need the 150/190 10 speed style wheel set."
Can i get a 27 speed gear system and hydraulic disc brakes on this bike?
Tyler b on May 28, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Sure, you can use standard parts to swap out anything you like. The derailleurs, shifters and cranks/BB are not bad at all and if you will use it as a winter bike then I would not even think about upgrading. One thing I would do is swap out the large chaining to a smaller one for better gearing if you have hills and climbs on your trails.

The brakes I swapped for Shimano XT as soon as I got the bike as I'm used to this and also do quick downhill sections. The kids have the mechanical ones on their Minisota and they are fine.
I am 5'5. What size works best for me? 16"?
Rolan D on Jan 27, 2015
BEST ANSWER: You need to look and measure your existing bike to find out what is best.. The 18" has 22" from seat stem to handle bars, too small for me at 6' I like 25" for a longer stretch and I felt like I was going to hit my knees.. Also check out your inseam. If you have long legs, the 18 will work. Don't forget that when you are riding the bike you have shoes on. Add 1-1 1/2 inch to inseam
I am 6' 5", would the 3.0 be my only option?
A shopper on Oct 19, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Shopper - Yes, the 3.0 is the best option for taller people
Hope that helps!
