    We are probably going to try a pair of Snowshoe tires on one. Looks like the rear will just clear but don't know if all gears will clear.

    I'm quite excited. I just got my first new-to-me bike that I've paid for (previous current was a present from 1993 - Trek 820 Antelope) and the current current is the MN2.0. I didn't get the color I wanted but the deal was too good to pass up (used and marked down).

    I got to ride it for an hour in the lot and I didn't find anything obviously stand-out wrong with it. Though by the time I got home it was too dark to do any further checks with it.

    Anyway, just wanted to post in this thread because I'm excited about the new bike.

    Like many, I read lots and hear about all the bike options in the $2k plus range and think about upgrading, then I take my 2.0 out for a ride and wonder why, this bike is great! Just my opinion, from the stock build, all it needs is a 22t granny ring, better tires and BB7 brakes and it's good to go!

    Happy Riding!

    I adjusted my bb5's and they work really well. I had thought of replacing them with bb7's, but I'll keep the bb5's!! I agree the stock gearing is bad, and after going to 22/32, I was totally satisfied!!

    I put a tapered Fox on my SE. It had an internal headset for 1 1/8, I popped out the bottom cup and replaced it with a Cane Creek external for the tapered steerer. I would think you can do the same on them MN.

    4.8 on the front and 3.8 in rear. There is zero chance a true 4.8 fits rear (I tried).

    Some people have fit a 1st generation snowshoe on rear, though since it is not a true 4.8.

    If you are looking for snow, just get a Nate.

    Has anyone got a set of stock pedals that came on a 2.0 that they took off and aren't using? I'd be interested in buying a set. The House is out of stock with them.

    Just out of curiosity, does anyone know how much the Minnesota 2.0 frame weighs vs Surly Pugsley fame weight? Curious to compare it to a pugs frame weight, thinking about switching over to a Framed.

    I think the Minnesota Frame is about 2lbs lighter. A Stock 2.0 is 35lbs. I believe a Pugsley is around 37lbs.

    The Minnesota 3.0 with Bluto will be $1,399. This price also includes a 3.0 rigid alloy fork (summer/winter). It should be available for pre-order at The House, look for an official launch in the next few days.

    Nice. Did they at least fix the gearing?

    +1

    If the gearing is fixed then this may be the bike for me.

    I guess that I am the only one who actually likes the gearing on my 2.0. I ride mine on light trails, road and sand. For my purposes, the gearing is almost perfect. For trails, I don't need a lower gear, and on the road I only spin out on top end coming off one bridge. Strava had me going 28mph.

    28/38 chainring is way too long in the mountains.

    The Minnesota 1.0 and 2.0 Fatbikes

    A 24/36 would be better or better yet a 22/36.

    Not that I personally care, but I really don't get the reason for putting a 28 chainring on a fatbike. That just makes no sense whatsoever.
