Metal sleeves used for the head tube, upper seat tube and bottom bracket, as well as custom-designed dropouts. These alloy fittings allow for the use of industry-standard parts. All bonded aluminum is abrasive blasted, acid etched and alodined for maximum bonding strength. Carbon fibre is also used to increase the strength in the head tube bonding system, and to strategically reduce frame weight in certain applications.
Every frame is hand-sanded for hours, refining machine work into the flowing lines envisioned by Renovo's designers.
The finish coating is multi-layer, with separate sealers and waterproof polyurethane formulated for use on outdoor structures. It is the most waterproof clear coat available, blocking UV damage and moisture.
These folks from Portland Oregon could not keep up with the demand for what they were offering - super well-designed custom made wood frame bicycles - and the backlog of requests finally caught up with them. Renovo bikes were always a collectors item, but now even more so.
