Audi describes ‘duo’, its recent collaboration with Portland, Oregon-based bicycle manufacturer Renovo, as ‘a hand-made work of art that you can ride every day’.
This is certainly a bike to be seen on, with its smooth lines, retro style and luxurious appearance. We can’t resist the old-worldliness of the design – seems like an honest bike to ride.
The love and care put into its design and manufacture is evident in every curve of duo’s handcrafted hardwood frame. According to its makers the Duo was built to combine elegance and luxury with performance and durability, so it’s more than just a showpiece.
Behind every model is a long process of testing and engineering, creating a bike that is at once beautiful, strong and lightweight – perfect for exploring the streets and seeing the city up close.
