Are wooden bikes sturdy?

    According to a bike builder in Oregon, they are!  🙂  Pricey, though.  They can be made from purpleheart wood or bamboo.  The bamboo would make them a good environmental choice.

    Depends on the manufacturers and type of bike. A homemade bike made from spare lumber perhaps wouldn’t be the most sturdy ride ever. There are a few capable manufacturers of wooden bicycles.

    Many wooden bikes are designed in the most ergonomic and capable manner possible particularly in relation to the design requirements of bicycles. A wooden bicycle manufacturer, Renovo, claims that wood’s “…engineering properties suit the requirements of most bicycle applications better than any other material. The performance of wood in applications more structurally demanding than bicycles has been well proven over many years.”
