2015 NAHBS: Retrotec Napa Valley Fatbike

Curtis Inglis’ company Retrotec is located in Napa Valley, California. Not exactly full fat territory, but as we all know, riding fatbikes can be fun in any terrain. For Curtis, building countless plump-tire bikes finally wore on him, resulting in not only the Best Mountain Bike award, but a new steed in his personal stable.

With a custom-painted Pass and Stow rack, PAUL Klampers, PAUL thru-axles and XTR, it has all the bling of a show bike and the stance of a trail beast. This is my personal favorite fatbike in the show…

    Tried to find something i don’t like about this bike, and nope. Nothing. Love it.

      PRO cockpit? Did they sponsor NAHBS or something?

        Actually, yes they do. Shimano gives builders a great discount for NAHBS.

          Cool, thanks. Wasn’t being sarcastic, just would’ve been surprised to hear that PRO was hip with the custom bike building world all of a sudden.

    oooo If Paul Comp levers had i-spec integration. Would be so clean.
