    sizes say 16, 18 and 20. Has this changed or is that correct now?

    Looking at the geometry chart it looks like the 19" Minnesota 1.0 is larger than the 20" Minnesota 2.0.

    Is the 1.0 a completely different frame from the 2.0?

    I doubt it, they started out with 17", 19" & 21" frame sizes, then they updated the website and the numbers changed a bit. Give it a week and the two models will match.

    I put down a deposit on a 2.0, now we wait.

    Has anyone else seen or ridden one yet? I am a newbie, so I do not know the reputation of the seller / distributer. Do any of you have some insight? I am tempted to order one of the 2.0.

    Thank you and take care,

    Mike

    This may be as close as you get to someone who has ridden one. Seriously for the deal you get for pre-order (an extra 29er wheelset)... this is a damn good deal for the components. Most everything you would need to know is in this article: First Look: $899 'Minnesota' Fat Bike | Gear Review | Gear Junkie

    This looks to me like the clear winner in cheap fat category, at least as long as you get the free 29er wheelset. The only question is whether the 1.0 or the 2.0 is better suited to a rider. I'd be getting rid of the Vee Missions anyways, so that's a wash. The extra gears on the 2.0 are nice, but would depend on riding conditions. Not sure that's worth the extra $100.

    Take note that the 1.0 and 2.0 are two DIFFERENT frames. Both have different sizing and geometry. So I would also consider the frame size while choosing between the two.

    Ah, missed that. The only difference between frames that makes me stop and think is the bb drop. If I'm reading right, the 1.0 has a 4.9 cm bb drop and the 2.0 has a 3.5 cm drop. I have no idea what that would mean in real-world terms. Otherwise, I don't see any drastic differences. Can anyone smarter about geo than me offer opinions on the geo differences between, say, the 17 inch 1.0 and the 18 inch 2.0 that would make a huge difference to the ride? I see the half degree head and seat tube angle differences, but I doubt I would notice that.

    The website for The House says back order ship on 1/30/2014. Are they available to purchase at the store? Or are these simply demos in the picture?

    Re: The Minnesota 1.0 and 2.0 Fatbikes

    So it's 2 completely different frames. Interesting. It looks like the 1.0 is more traditional XC geometry with a slightly longer wheelbase and much longer top tube compared to the 2.0.
    If you gorge yourself into morbid obesity, you can skip everyone else in line at Disney World.
