    It's weird that the shop wouldn't have any of this info..

    I am not going to get too excited about an earlier ship date, hopefully we get news they have landed in Minnesota, and I can bring my truck down to load it up with the bikes my family and friends ordered!!

    Framed Bikes Jon, I'm sorry about that...it wasn't my intention to tease. We just like to push the bikes in nar nar conditions...always testing. Good news also...the 2.0's are coming in ahead of schedule. We're hoping the 23rd or 24th of this month.

    Framed Bikes Kevin Stulen You might not have caught wind yet but The House Boardshop Might be shipping out their orders as soon as the 17th!

    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.

    Someone asked Framed Bikes if the bikes would be shipping on the 17th, when would they be available to pickup in store at The House. They replied with

    "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."

    So I was hoping what they meant was that They are going to be so busy shipping all your bikes on the 17th that they are only going to have time to start assembling on the 20th" LOL Here's to hoping.

    I'm planning on doing an adventure race with mine on Feb 8th, so as long as it comes in before that date, I'll be happy. But I'm really hoping they ship early next week so that it gives me a chance to give it a few shake down rides before the race.

    I tried that... It hangs in the shed :-/

    I kept telling her I had until June (the wedding) to buy everything I've ever wanted on 'my money'... She thought I was kidding...

    We've been engaged for a year and during that time I've:
    bought a new (to me) SUV
    upgraded both mtb's (sold two, so just upgrade costs)
    bought 3 firearms
    Doing a 27.5 conversion
    Bought a 27.5 Fox 34, debating pulling the trigger on a Pike...

    lol

    I ordered a 2.0 Black/white size 16 after much debating between the FB4 Elite. The component offerings on the 2.0 were the deciding factor for me.

    The only thing that has me concerned are the hubs. Quando? not very good reviews. I priced out replacements and I can live with that cost.

    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

    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.

    Fat Bike Update! The bikes are at customs getting inspected which is causing a short delay. We should know more soon on an incoming date to The House Boardshop

    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

    Anybody knows what kind of crank it comes with?
    Faster is not always better, but it's always more fun

    Nope it appears to be a SRAM Truvativ with a 100mm ISIS Bottom Bracket.

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