California Fresh B+ Blingage from Retrotec

Curtis from Retrotec sent me some shots of one of his latest hand made, custom builds rock’n the new B+ wheel size. This particular build was built to accommodate both 29r and 27.5 + wheels. Fox’s new B+ fork and a dropper post along with the brand new XTR 1 x 11 drive train round out the build.

This thing just screams trail bike to me! We’ve been waiting to get our hands on a suspension fork for plus sized wheels. It looks like the wait is over!

We’re big fans of the work that Curtis produces out in his California shop

Retrotec’s twin top tubes make a graceful arc from the head tube to the rear drop on this Cyan and Kawasaki Green beauty! I’ve gotten to ride my amigo, Julio’s Retrotec 29+ and it rides as nice as this one looks! You can check out Julio’s review here and you can see all of the details for this build below.

    27.5 x 3.5! That’s why they look so fat. Awesome!
