Renovo Hardwood Beach Cruiser

“When I was in Portland, nobody wanted a beach cruiser,” Renovo founder Ken Wheeler told me. “Now that I’m in California, everybody asks for one.”

This demo for Sea Otter is not quite finished, Ken tells me. It’s missing kickstand, fender, bell and a few other finishing details.

    Just a wild guess, but aren’t Renovos in the 5 grand range? I can’t imagine he’s hitting the market that’s asking for cruisers, but heck, what do I know.

    Frames for his other bikes start at about $2000, and he’s making money on them so people are buying the bikes. This might be a custom job / special request.
