We like Wood!!

So last November a dear friend of mine said I should check out this company that makes wood bikes..........I always do what my friend says. Renovo Bikes is what I found. I gave Ken a call and said i want something kind of one-off for Street Swell. He was more than willing to accommodate. What I now have is the first bike I've ever had that will never be for sale...take a look and tell me what you think.

When building the bike up I enlisted my long time friend and bike shop owner Frank Mitchell of Moontime Cycles in Edwards Coloarado I told Frank I wanted to make this thing the coolest bike around and I had to have gold parts. Together we came up with parts from Chris King, Formula, Exotic, Phil Wood and Ergon to name a few.

What I ended up with is one of the sweetest looking 21lbs Single speeds around......and it rides like a dream. I am blown away at how responsive and comfortable it is.

Now we have a bike to take to shows that totally compliments our longboards and again proves its hard to improve on nature.

Well done Renovo....well done!

  1. It's not a 29er is it? NINER makes a solid gold carbon fork that may look sweet on it. Nice lookin bike though!
