Portland’s Renovo, makers of exquisite hardwood bicycles, is opening a showroom in the San Francisco Bay Area. From Renovo:
Renovo Design of Portland is opening a showroom for their innovative hardwood and laminated bamboo bicycles in Sausalito, California July 2nd. These custom, lightweight, handmade, hollow-frame bicycles have received worldwide acclaim, raced at the Ironman World Championships, and recently earned the 4 ring logo from the carmaker Audi, for whom Renovo now produces a series of bicycles.
The sustainability, natural woods, finish and intricate joinery of Renovo frames are attractive, but any owner will tell you it’s the performance and ride qualities for which they’re coveted. Each frame is handmade in Renovo’s shop in Portland, where combinations of woods are used to individually tailor both the ride qualities and the appearance to suit the customer. Renovo’s lineup includes road, city, commuter, triathlon and mountain styles, with demo bikes of each in and our showrooms so riders can sample the Renovo experience on local riding paths and trails. Portland visitors are welcome to tour the production facility.
In a unique, but obvious collaboration, Renovo’s Sausalito bicycle showroom will also show select pieces of the sublime handcrafted furniture made by the Joinery. The Joinery has been the Northwest’s premier handmade custom furniture maker for thirty years, and they too have earned an international reputation for their designs and quality. They use many species including Oregon timber they harvest and mill, and many of their woods are FSC certified. The Joinery produces exquisite designs of their own as well as Asian, Arts and Crafts, Shaker, Mission, Modern and Contemporary. They welcome fully custom work.
Renovo Design was founded in 2007 in Portland Oregon. They are the first and only producer of hollow frame wooden bicycles in the world and have patents pending on their designs. Their high performance, computer designed bicycles are loved worldwide and have been featured in magazines and newspapers from the Oregonian to the Economist and Forbes, as well as a wide range of cycling publications.
