I'm Tom from the Pacific Northwest. We live in Central Washington and normally the riding is good up here but I'm afraid for a while we won't get any riding done because it hasn't been above freezing for a few weeks now.
I just bought a Renovo wooden bicycle and am really anxious to take it for a ride longer than the 50 feet I've ridden it so far. I had it built as a hybrid so it's got gearing like a mountain bike with a Sram compact drive set and semi flat bars.
My wife and I normally ride Trek 7.9 FX and it seems like the new Renovo rides very much like the Treks except the Renovo is gorgeous. I weighed the two bikes and they way within ounces of each other, less than a 1/10th of a pound.
