    Framed Minnesota 2.0 Wheels

    Hi Ive been lurking around the site for a quite a while now looking at all your amazing fat bikes and Ive finally pulled the trigger on a frame. Im going to be building up on an On One Fatty frame and fork, and I was shopping around for a set of wheels and came across the Framed Minnesota 2.0 wheels from The House. I looked around and couldn't find much on them and was just wondering what your thoughts were on the wheels? The buying their wheels seem to be one of the most cost efficient options (student on a budget) so I was wanted to know a little about the wheels.

    Thank you for your help.

    I had bought the frame and fork bundle in hopes that I could find a better deal on wheels, and at the time the rolling chassis was out of my budget. Looking back I should have probably gone for it anyway. However the Minnesota 2.0 wheels come out cheaper than buying the on one fatty wheelsets, I was just wondering how they compare to other sets and if its a good buy.

    I was wondering about those too. Would like to know if their claimed weight is true.

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common

    Holy cow that is cheap, if it means getting your fat bike up and going why not!!

    Edit: Personally I would get the On One set if it was only a few more$$$ if it was available.

    Hahah ya that isn't something you want in a rim. On the Framed website they say

    "The Framed 80mm rim has been our go to rim throughout the lineup. It's light, strong and at 80mm gives you the largest range of tire sizes. It comfortably fits 4.0-4.8" tires. The 2.0 front wheel runs our Quando 135 quick release hub."

    So they're 80mm rims but I dont understand why the widths on the Framed site and The House site don't match up. But the front is 3lbs 8oz with 135mm hubs and the rear is 3lbs 11oz with a 170mm hub. Those weights are fair for single wall rims right?

    @bdundee

    I was considering the On Ones wheels its just that with shipping and duties to Canada, the On Ones become almost double the price of the Framed. But I appreciate your suggestion to get the Framed wheels to get the bike up and running!

    Rechecked the links. They claim 100mm width for the rear wheel rim.
    Oddly the front is rim "break" compatible but the rear is not.
    The hubs are decent. The weight is good.
    And front has 36 spokes and a 32 hole rim!

    I have a 2.0 sitting here. The wheels are not machined for rim brakes, they are disc only. They roll nicely from the rides I have taken. If you want super light, you will pay for it. For a budget build, these should be fine.

    Try this link: Mn2 Front Wheel | Framed Bikes
    And this one: Mn2 Rear Wheel | Framed Bikes
    The pedals turn, not just the left one, but the right one too.

    That's very odd because looking here:
    Mn2 Rear Wheel | Framed Bikes

    The specs say it's 80mm. I sent The House a message to find out whether there is an error on their site. Thank you for confirming that the weight is good!

    Rim sidewalls do not need to be machined to work with rim brakes. Only thick enough, tall enough, flat, and not powder coated.
    But what fat bike frame still has rim brakes?

    Hmmm, a different claimed weight, too.
