Description: Framed Minnesota LTD Fat Bike

Change is good. Improvements are great. Sounds a lot like the new Minnesota LTD fat bike from Framed Bikes. Chock full of updates, this bike is the ultimate evolution of the Minnesota line. The frame has been updated with a new geometry as well as a 177x12mm rear thru axle, increasing control and making a more responsive ride. The headtube is tapered 1-?” to 1-½” to accommodate any fork upgrade your heart desires. The drivetrain gets a total overhaul with a SRAM NX 1x11 group. Toss in a set of SRAM Level hydraulic brakes and ALEX Blizzerk tubeless compatible rims and you have the most competitively spec’d fat bike in it’s class.

Minn. LTD - a very good bike and a very good price.
A very nice bike. I'm new to the Fat bike scene but I have been riding and racing on road/mtn/CX for a very long time (30-40-ish years and own/maintain 50+ bikes) and, in my opinion, the LTD is a very nice functional bike. My vertically challenged wife recently purchased an XS Salsa Mukluk for nearly $2k and I would say it and the LTD are quite comparable. Don't get me wrong, Salsa makes some very nice bikes, but so does Framed.I ended up swapping the bars, grips and saddle for personal preferences, but the supplied parts were more than up to the task. The plastic 'resin' pedals, however, weren't up to the task and took a beating on the technical trails of Western Colorado.

Excellent bike for the price point.
For my first Fat Bike, I am really enjoying it. Still learning some of the Dynamics of fat biking but the Framed Minnesota LTD is amazing. Easy to assemble, and ready to ride in 20 minutes. One issue was the pedals, not the best. But luckily I had a set of flats bought for my mtb, no issue.

What is the maximum rear tire size this frame will accomodate?
A shopper on Mar 2, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The Minnesota LTD will accommodate up to a 4.0 inch tire in the rear and 4.8 inch tire in the front.
Will the 2.0 fatties slims fit on this bike?
Garry Z on Jun 9, 2018
No, the MN LTD uses thru-axles front and rear where the MN 2.0 used basic quick release.
Which fattie slims tires are compatible with the LTD?
A shopper on Jul 12, 2018
Unfortunately, we don't currently have a set of fattie slims that are compatible with the LTD. However, I checked with our Framed guys and they said that we could custom build a wheelset for you for about $300.
what size 27.5 plus tire will fit in this bike?
A shopper on Jun 26, 2018
Per the guys at Framed, the spacing is there for a 27.5 plus wheelset to fit on this bike. However, the current rims that we have don't work well with the hubs needed to fit the spacing. They are working on getting a new rim in that will work perfectly for that. Word around the office is that the new rim may be tubeless compatible too!
Have a good one!
Will this bike be available in 22" frame similar to the Minn 3.0?
A shopper on May 9, 2018
Currently the only size we have the 18" version of the LTD. In the future we are set to receive a full size range of these bikes: 16, 18, 20 with a possible 22" down the road.
Will more forks and packages be offered and frame sizes?
A shopper on Apr 15, 2018
Will this be available in a 21" frame?
A shopper on Mar 31, 2018
This bike will not be available in a 21" size. We recommend the 20" size as the most appropriate substitute.
Are these tube less ready and set up? Or do I need to get it ready for being tubeless.
Thunder M on Jan 29, 2019
The Wheelset is a tubless ready combination but will require tubeless tape and sealant.
Does the front axle have a quick release? Or do you need a tool to remove it?
Chris R on Nov 17, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Does the front axle have a quick release? Or do you need a tool to remove it? A: The front thru axle on this bike does not have a quick release lever. You will need a hex wrench to remove and install the axle.
Is it possible to ship in Europe?
A shopper on Nov 12, 2018
Yes we can ship the Framed Minnesota LTD to Europe, but we cannot ship to every country in Europe. Please check out our international shipping page at
Will there be a package with a front suspension fork coming out?
A shopper on Nov 10, 2018
As of right now, there are no plans to offer the LTD with a suspension fork, but you can purchase one after market and get it installed!
What is the largest tire this frame and fork can accept?
Shad H on Sep 3, 2018
This bike can fit up to a 26x4.8in tire in the front on the fork and a 26x4.0in tire in the rear.
How does this bike work on trails compared to say a wolftrax, Marquette, etc.... Are the tires tubeless as well? Will you please post a geometry chart.
Mike G on Jul 30, 2018
It will be similar to the Wolftrax Alloy with fat tires. The Marquette is a plus bike rather than a fat bike, so it's in a bit of a different category. The tires and rims are both tubeless compatible. Framed is working on a geometry chart right now, but since they don't have the full size run yet, they haven't had a chance to get the chart done. According to our Framed rep, it should be done and posted by the end of August.
Living in NH are there any certified bike shops that you can recommend for final assembly of the bike. Also Iā€™m 6ā€™ with an inseam of 33ā€ what frame size should I chose?
Paul R on Jul 25, 2018
I would recommend getting the assembly done by our bike techs here at The House. It does include free shipping! If you would rather get it assembled near you, any bike shop will work as the assembly on this bike is pretty standard across brands.
what is the chainstay measurement of this bike?
A shopper on Jun 26, 2018
Framed says: 464mm. I will as for an update to the info on this page..... thanks for posting this question.
