Cycling Plus is the UK's largest cycling magazine. They recently published a brief ride review of three bikes made of non-mainstream materials including the Renovo Pursuit. Their takeaway was that "It's a guaranteed head-turner that you could ride an all-day sportive on, and then hang over your mantelpiece with pride come the evening."
Both the print and online magazine are subscription only and have no links, so here are screenshots of the introduction and the Renovo portion...
The Renovo Pursuit "Surprise, it rides like a proper race bike"

"The smooth, quiet ride of the Fat-Ash would mean nothing if the bike didn’t also handle superbly. I’m happy to report that the torsional stiffness of the wood works exceptionally with the rock-solid frame geometry, and it’s all tied together with impeccable construction and a great set of components."
