Wood is certainly a regular household item — it can be used for pretty much everything found in the home. But it's not normally used for a bicycle.
The Renovo Bicycle's are made from hollow wood and laminated bamboo. The frames are fully customizable; hickory for a super stiff ride, while a smooth ride would use laminated bamboo. There are options available using Black Walnut, Cedar, Maple, Bamboo and more.
We ride our bikes every day around Philadelphia, and we think this would make a great addition to our bike collection. Our favorite part, displaying the bike as art when we're finished for the day.
