Hope rider enjoy riding audi. :) CycleNater Posted: 4/4/2011 2:34pm PDT "This completely ignores the fact that aluminum-framed bicycles rely on hollow tubing to save weight..." The author must have completely ignored the fact that Renovo uses a monocoque construction resulting in a hardwood frame that is mostly hollow to save weight. That Renovo pioneered the technology to make a hollow hardwood frame is why this bike is considered a high-performance work of art of par with other frame materials.
