The Minnesota 2.0 & 3.0 Fat Bikes
Fat bikes are fun.
Practical, for a lot of our local trails, they’re not.
What the heck, practical isn’t everything. Nobody said that you needed four-wheel drive, 30″ of ground clearance and internet service in your car either. You still have fun driving to the grocery store in your Hummer H2.
Yeah but the thing is, you want to play around on the trails or try to cruise the beaches at low tide, but otherwise aren’t really sure how much you’d ride a fat bike. It is the Pacific Northwest after all. We’re not really known for snowy or sandy trails.
We get it. You don’t really want to spend $2000 on a bike that might not get much use.
That’s why we have the Minnesota 2.0 and 3.0 from the good folks at Framed bicycles. The frames are made out of aluminum, so they’re light and rust resistant. The Minnesota 3.0 is really fat with 5″ wide tires that roll over the mushiest surfaces easily. The bike is outfitted with nice lightweight gear and comes in at a reasonable price. The Minnesota 2.0 has 4″ wide tires for good floatation across soft trails, and the bike is less than $1000, so you can try out those weird cycling adventures that you had in mind without dropping a lot of cash.
