Sounds eco-friendly! A little bit curious??? How do you bulid up a bike with all wooden materials? How many percentages in wood?

My two riding buddies reported seeing a bike made from 2×4’s somewhere along the route this year.

I talked to the guy with the bike made of 2×4’s He said it rides like SHIXXX but it was a hell of a conversation starter.

I saw at least 3 wooden bikes a Renovo, and 2 made from 2x4s. Talked with one rider of the 2X4 bike and he claimed it rode nice. Have seen the Renovo bikes before and talked to riders and they say it is a sweet ride.The 2X4 bikes were hand made.
