Portland company challenges theory that wooden bikes can't be efficient www.oregonlive.com/business/index.ssf/2010
"Ken Wheeler uses woods from all over the world to make bikes and as far as we know, his line of Renovo bikes is the only hollow frame wood bike company in the world. n his Southeast Portland workshop, Ken Wheeler makes serious road, touring and mountain bikes -- out of wood.
Skeptical engineers and cyclists scoff at the idea, but Wheeler and his company, Renovo Hardwood Bicycles, are slowly proving them wrong. For 3 1/2 years, he's been rolling out his tailor-made hollow-framed wooden bikes -- the only ones of their kind, he said -- converting cynics along the way."
