QBP’s History of Fat and the Remolino Fat

fatbike-03

Remolino was the first company to go to market with all the crucial pieces that make a fat bike. Including 3.5” tires, 80mm rims, and a frame to accept the wide, plump tires. Ray Molina, the guy behind Remolino, donated a production model to help kick off QBP’s History of Fat exhibit at last week’s Interbike.

I had planned on shooting the exhibit, but every time I went by to check it out, the booth was swarmed.

Andy from QBP sent over a few studio shots of this bike, which you can check out below.

Here’s a fun fact: Remolino’s tires were made using an existing tire mold and with a handmade center section added in. They were made in Mexico City on the very same machines that made Model T tires around the turn of the century. The rims are drilled for two valve cores as well.
