The concept behind Renovo is that a properly engineered hollow wood frame can deliver a lifetime of riding with a unique combination of ride qualities unavailable from other materials.
But don't just take our word for it- read on to see what professional reviewers are saying:
Renovos have an unequaled smooth ride. This is because vibration is absorbed by the wood itself, enhanced by our designs where appropriate.
“Wood damps vibration and that, in a nutshell, is why the John Day is so smooth.” - Peloton Magazine, Nov. '17
“...we immediately came away surprised at how smooth the ride quality was." - Road Bike Action Magazine, April '18
"The Pursuit has a ride that's lively, smooth, rigid and well-damped without being overly so." - Bicycling Magazine, Jan. 18
Designed to be as stiff as the riding style requires:
"The frame proved to be both stiff— allowing for efficient out-of-the-saddle pedaling—and lightweight, making the effort of those pedal strokes count." - Mountain Bike Action, Jan. '18
"The stiffness through the drive train exceeded all of the steel and ti bikes I have ever ridden and rivals that of my current aluminium steed.” - New Zealand Mountain Biker Magazine, May '12
“The frame felt sufficiently stiff...the kind of stiffness that left us wondering how it could be so comfortable but still so solid on the pedals.” - Road Bike Action Magazine, April '18
The beauty of a Renovo is the ride quality, the looks are a bonus and simply incidental to our choice of material.
"Nowhere is there a more beautiful bike frame than those made by Portland, Oregon –based Renovo Hardwood Bicycles." - Outside Magazine, July '17
"The level of quality, engineering, artistry and craftsmanship are superb and evident from the moment you lay eyes on a Renovo." - Road Bike Action Magazine, April '18
Renovo frames are designed to become heirlooms, withstanding wear, tear and the elements as well or better than any other bike. This is why we offer a lifetime warranty on road frames and a five year warranty on mountain frames.
This pair of bikes has more than 30,000 combined miles. They were purchased in 2008 and 2010 and still look (and ride) like new.
