    I figure low engagement hubs won't matter that much on snow?

    Actually, quick engagement hubs are always better... especially at a slow stall and go pace like in the snow.

    Nope nothing has been posted about ETA on the Framed Facebook since the last message that said

    "Framed Bikes We just got word that they hope to be assembling Framed Bikes around the 20th. A few days later than hopped but still way ahead of schedule.

    Both the White/Orange and Black Minnesota 2.0 are now showing up as In Stock. They were both showing up as back ordered yesterday. Only 18" left in the White/Orange and 16 and 18" in the Black. So they should be shipping real soon since they show Ships Immediately for the 2 colors in stock.

    I called this morning to switch from the black/white to the black/black that shows in stock and was told that the they are not in stock and the "In Stock" status is an error. Sigh...

    The service rep also told me that the stock dates are usually very accurate.

    Oh man... I was really hoping to hear some early shipping news today! I hope Customs doesn't hold things up too much.

    Does anyone know the width of the Fattie Slims rims that come with the package?


    Also, what is the relationship between Framed and The House?

    Waiting patiently (sort of)!

    Take care,

    Mike

    Honestly, I'd keep the black/white. I've read black rims like to collect snow on the trails. They warm in the sun then freeze again when snow hits them.

    I did keep the black/white combo. I was trying to be slick and do the switch to what was supposedly in stock. :0

    Looks like they are on the way, keeping fingers crossed.

    I think the black/white looks really slick.

    I almost went with it, but I've never owned a white bike and the orange rims just looked cool and funky... I mean hey, it's a fat bike, make it funky right?!

    Patiently, or not Patiently waiting over here. I have a bikepacking trip in Pisgah scheduled for the 6-9th of February. All of my accessories are sitting in the garage with panniers, frame bags, hammocks, bags, you name it.. Just need a bike to put it on so I don't have to take the 29er!

    Cmon customs!

    I've got a 6 hour adventure race planned for Feb 8th so I'm patiently waiting for the bike to arrive. I'll be happy as long as I get it before the 8th but the sooner I get it the better. I would like to give it a few shake down rides before setting out on a 6 hour race.

    Let me know how you enjoy Pishgah on the Fat Bike. A few of my friends have done the 5 day stage race down there the past 2 years. I'm considering heading down there next September to race it but not on the Minnesota LOL

    This is what the SRAM X5 Fatbike Crank with the 100mm GXP Bottom Bracket looks like.

    I'm assuming they can but we won't know for sure until we get them and we can measure the BCD on the crank.

    I'm not sure how ideal the 38/28T gearing will be in the front so I'm hoping it's 104BCD since I'm playing with the idea of converting it to 1x10 by possibly putting a Single Race Face 30T Narrow Wide Chainring in the front and putting a 10 speed cassette in the rear with a 42T OneUp Component Cog in the rear. I've already got the 10 speed XT Cassette, Shifter and chain so I would need the 10 speed rear derailleur.

    I haven't ordered anything yet since I want to see what type of rear hub comes with the bike. Someone on here had said that the only 170mm rear hub they could find that Quando made was of the screw-on threaded type versus the more common regular splined freehub.

    The House page is now showing "Backorder Ship on 1/24/14". That is a little sooner than the original 1/30/14 date, but not quite as good as some of the rumors. Either way, I am stoked to get my bike!

    Take care,

    Looks like the bikes have cleared customs and are on their way to Minnesota. This was just posted on the Framed Bike Facebook Page.

    Patiently waiting. Originally when they thought they would get them in on the 20th, they told me it's possible to have by the 27th. I'm hoping they get them with 1/24 and I'll have it the 1st or so. Fingers crossed. Need it by the 4th so I'll have time to get 50 miles or so breakin before my trip.

    Hopefully not another false alarm, but all Minnesota 2.0 are showing as in-stock with a shipping status of Ship within 24 hours. When we had the false alarm In Stock on Tuesday, the status said ships immediately. So hopefully this is a good sign. I also noticed that the White/Orange 16" is once again available to order for anybody who missed out on one.

    I'm starting to get excited now! 30 years ago I quit bmx, and started smoking cigs. This New Years, I quit cigs, and waiting for my old-man bmx fatbike to arrive. Gonna toss this thing in the rv and ride everywhere from Mt Ranier to Daytona beach. Fun and exploration, disguised as exercise. Wondering, since I've ordered the black/black, would it be considered disrespectful to Framed if I took the stickers off? Not a big deal, just thinking it will look sinister.

    Smile

    The first thing I intend on doing is removing the white splash "Framed" logo on the frame and fork. Either it will be peeled off or sanded and painted over flat black.

    Just told the bikes are in but 29er wheels are not so bikes will not ship until wheels come in. Working on a plan B.

    I was just browsing Ebay and there's 2.0s listed from DJ Boardshop for$849.95 showing delivery on or before next Wednesday. So it looks like that free wheelset ends up costing $90 bucks including shipping...

    WOW, that blows. What is even worse is that $90 wheelset is the phony reason they will not ship. Also makes sense why they take the $$$ up front before shipping. Never have seen that before, always get charged the day it gets shipped.

    Hi guys first time posting, I ordered about a month ago and have been following this post for weeks, was just on the House site and now it seems they are back ordered till 4-1-14!!!!
    I think Bikes Direct will have theirs first! Reason I ordered was the 2 wheel sets but by waiting for this bike the winter will be long gone!!!!
    Might have to cancel!

    I'm in the same boat. It was a toss up between the Minnesota 2.0 and the BikesDirect Fantom models. The concerns with the Minnesota were the hubs, BB5 brakes, BB, and crank but I was willing to overlook it for the free wheelset and better tires. However now the price difference on eBay without the wheels seriously dilutes the value of the wheelset (for $90 its still not bad). With the shipping delay because of the free wheelset this looks like a cancel for me. I'll either buy it from eBay without the extra wheelset or go with BikesDirect.

    I'd say to save face The house should ship the bikes now then the wheel set later!

    I emailed the seller on ebay, I want to know if they physically have they bike or if it ships from somewhere else,

    they have the same shipping map as the House!

    Only the white/orange and black/white are showing backordered. The silver/red and black/black are showing in stock. I imagine that the backorder bikes listed are already sold out and the next shipment is due in April.

    The White/Orange in 18" still shows as in stock. I'm tempted but have not much snow at the moment and getting yet another bike would lead to marital stress so I'm watching this one from the sidelines for now.

    On the white/orange, the 20" has been sold out for awhile. If you go to the webpage for the White/Orange and select the 16" or 18", they show as in stock. If you select the 20", it says Backordered until 04/01/2014. This is probably when they expect their next delivery of 20".

    When we originally ordered the bikes, they said that they would be backordered until Jan 30th. If the wheels show up next Wednesday, we will be right on target for the original estimated shipping date.

    It would of been nice to get them a bit early but they are still on schedule to what they originally stated would be the original ship date.

    Ordered a black & white one earlier this week. Customer service just e-mailed me to tell me that it's supposed to ship early next week.
