Renovo R3 Road Frame

Renovo R3, padauk, curly maple

The R3 is a high performance scene-stealer in nature's own carbon fiber. Before the ride, this is the bike everyone checks out, every time. During the ride, its performance is as aggressive as it looks--it gives nothing to high-end bikes of unnatural carbon or other man-made materials; it climbs, descends and turns with the best. And when you get to the chip seal, this one takes better care of your butt.

But it's not for shy folks—at the coffee shop, people will gather and you will  be talking about your bike. On the trail: 'excuse me, excuse me, could you stop for a moment', or just 'sweet ride'.

Frame Weight

Frames weigh from 4.5 to 5.5 pounds, depending on size and the particular wood. Complete bikes weigh from 17 to 22 pounds depending on components and configuration.

Geometry

This geometry is not quite race geometry. The handling is nimble, but the cockpit is less aggressive with a taller head tube, resulting in a more comfortable riding position.

All dimensions are in mm unless otherwise noted.
