Bike Size Charts
BikeRide finds and shows you the best prices of the bikes you want to buy. Prices constantly change and it’s impossible to compare them all yourself.
We search for prices on over 120 bike retailers to guarantee that we find the lowest prices – to save you time and money.
It’s a promise we stand behind: If you find a lower price on a bike elsewhere, we will sell it to you for 10% less. For example, if you find a bike for $480 that we have listed at $500, we will offer you to buy it for $432 through BikeRide. The bike must be the same color and size, sold in the US and not include the use of a coupon.
If you find a lower price, email us at [email protected] with documentation of the price. We’re committed to making sure that the cost of a bike does not keep you from cycling!
Summary of Reviews
We have read all expert and user reviews on the Framed Minnesota LTD. In summary, this is what cyclists think.
18 reasons to buy
- The Minnesota LTD is considered to be stupendous value for its price-point. A lightweight frame and quality componentry attest to this.
- A swooping top tube and seat stays contribute to an elegant frame with distinctive, flattened tubing.
- Owners loved the Maroon colorway. Few buyers seemed to choose black.
- In the front-end of the bike, solid house-brand kit is reliable and keeps prices low.
- It is rare that a stock saddle is universally approved for comfort, as it was in the case of the Velo S2.
- The bash guard is an included bonus, protecting that single chainring from debris.
- Alex Blizzerk 70mm rims come tubeless-ready with cut-outs to shed weight. Reportedly, they stayed true.
- Terrene Wazia 26 x 4.0 tires were very grippy and arrived tubeless ready. They were also studdable for snow-biking.
- SRAM Level Hydraulic brakes impressed owners.
- The Minnesota LTD is offered with an optional Rock Shox Bluto suspension fork, or easily upgraded from the rigid model.

- The 11 speed SRAM cassette offered a wide 11-42 tooth gear-range.
- The Minnesota LTD was at home on singletrack, snow, loose soil and around town.
- Definitive and reliable shifting was delivered by a SRAM NX trigger-shifter and rear derailleur.
- Fatbikers were pleased with the extra stability offered by front and rear thru-axles.

8 reasons not to buy

- For some riders, the alloy front-end came across as excessively rigid.
- The Wazia tires were deemed too grippy for on-road use.
