    The Minnesota 1.0 and 2.0 Fatbikes

    I know this is already posted but didn't earlier. Sorry for the duplicate thread.

    Another entry into the sub-$1000 fatbike market is the "Minnesota":

    $799 Aluminum Fat Bike | Gear Review | Gear Junkie

    Bikes - Framed Bikes

    It's 23F here in (the state of) Minnesota. The snow from earlier this week has melted but I'm commuting on the Pug this morning. Huzzah!

    I think this thread was 7 down from yours.

    Another low priced fat bike option?

    Sure would have been nice had the original thread been titled something useful, like "The Minnesota 1.0 and 2.0 Fatbikes." Would really reduce the likelihood of dupe threads popping up. Just sayin'.

    Keep this thread! The title is way better. Let the other one die. Here's stuff from the other thread:

    Slow Danger: "The website shows a 1.0 and a 2.0 version. Anybody find any differences other than colored rims?"

    nikj: "9 and 18 speed"

    Timpanogos: "The tires are also different. One has 72 tpi wire and the other has 120 tpi folding."

    Pancake: "Ehhhhhhhhhhhh:

    "Limited Warranty

    (a) This warranty extends only to the original retail purchaser of the bicycle.

    (b) This warranty covers for one year defects in material and workmanship only in the alloy steel or Cro-Moly frames and forks of the bicycle.

    (c) This warranty does not cover paint, decals, tires, tubes, chains, rims, cables, pads, handlebars, grips, pedals, and other wear items."

    puchcobra: "I just received a response via Ebay and she said it will be be available in early February.

    Morning,


    Thanks so much for the email! I just spoke with the bossman and it appears that the Fat Bikes should be available on eBay early February so keep in touch with us towards the end of January and we'll go from there. Take care!


    Leslie?"

    Now you are up to date.

    I just recieved another email:
    Thanks for the email! The bikes will be in stock end of January to early February. The-House.com will be running an extra wheel set promo and should start taking pre-orders today or tomorrow. Please let me know if you have any other questions.

    The rims look strange on that bike - either made of a thick material or double walled with the space filled in?

    Yeah, I wish I could get a closer look at the rim. On the spec list, it says they are single walled, 80mm rims from Weinmann, but the holes look just as deep as on the double walled, 80mm Weinmann rear rim on the Motobecane fatty.

    In the other thread, somebody had the impression that the bike comes with 29 inch wheels as well as fat. Can anyone confirm whether both wheel sets come with the bike? I might have missed on the website, but didn't see anything.

    I emailed them about sizes because I am looking for a XS for my wife she is 5' 1" and not sure wants a fat bike but for this price it seems like a good deal. Anyways on the sizes they are not making a XS on their first run of bikes. Thinking it might be a risky move and maybe not sell.

    read the description on the 2.0

    Minnesota 2.0 White Orange - Framed Bikes

    "We wanted to solve two problems.
    First, we wanted to make a nicely spec'd fatty for under $900. We did that! Not only did we do that, we did it while adding extras. The Minnesota 2.0 pays attention to the little things. It comes stock with light weight cleated alloy pedals and a KMC x9... check the spec and compare to the competition!

    Second, we wanted to make a fatty that was as multi-purpose as possible. We did that too; enter Framed 29er wheel set. We cut through the BS and hooked up a ready to ride 29er slick wheel set (w/rotors and cassette mounted). "
    since you're dealing with a BD style company that may be carefully worded to retract later


    @ Kopish, good on ya

    The second wheel set will be part of a pre-order promotional. I read that somewhere on one of the websites that were linked to. It also said check back in a few days for the opportunity to order.

    No they did not, but then I didn't ask them. I am only looking for an XS for my wife. They did respond quickly to my e-mail so you may want to send them one too.

    Sorry. I didn't mean to be a jerk. I should have phrased it better.

    Best thing about this bike is this: It's the cheapest way to get into fatbikes and it uses all reasonably standard fatbike parts. So, drop $800 for a bike and upgrade all the parts and you're still cheaper than a new pugsley.

    Figure with $1k to play with for upgrades, you could have a really nice bike out of this deal.

    Here is an update concerning sizes offered. I received an email from them.

    Thanks for the email!
    -We'll be offering a 17, 19, and 21 in our first order...we hope to have 15's on the way shortly after.
    -Yep, The House bike shop will be stocking and selling them.
    -Good eyes...we were in a rush to get the new site up and missed that important spec. Crank set will be 28/38T (better right?)
    - Yes, we're working on the geo for the website...hope to have that up this week.
    Cheers!
