2016 NAHBS: Retrotec 27.5+ Hardtail

Continuing with the domination of the 27.5+ wheel platform, this Retrotec hardtail brings everything in we’re accustomed to from Curtis Inglis, and then some. This year, Curtis has switched that new White Industries Narrow Wide 1x crankset on most of his mountain bikes at the show. There’s something special coming (for me) to the site later on, but for now let’s drool over this big, fat and beautiful hardtail.

        John: Thank you for working so hard to bring the NAHBS to those of us that couldn’t make it out to Sacramento. Your photosets are excellent and are the next best thing to actually being there. Much appreciated.

    Amazing attention to detail…
    And then they put the stem faceplate upside down.

    • ABW

      I’m going to believe it was intentional, like wrenches running their King headset cups upside down. Because otherwise…

    Lust.
