A while ago McLaren unveiled the S-Works Venge Bicycle and now Audi of America has joined the ranks of automakers selling bicycles with their new creation, the Audi Duo. Audi, in cooperation with Renovo Hardwood Bicycles has unveiled this exclusive bicycle in three different models: City, Sport, and Road.
The new bicycle features a monocoque frame made of hardwood that provides a smoother ride. This feature will ensure that the new Audi duo bicycle will be recyclable and biodegradable. Audi is the first automaker to recognize the benefits of, and offer a bicycle made from, wood.
The first model - Duo City - is priced at $6,350 and features an upright position for short distances, comfort, and traffic vigilance, wide puncture-resistant 32mm tires, LED lights, fenders, and a rack.
The next one is called the Duo Sport and is a model priced at $7,350 that comes with the Shimano Alfine 11-speed internal gear hub, drop bars for long distances, minimum fenders, medium width, and puncture-resistant 28mm tires for less rolling resistance.
The last model is the the Duo Road and is priced at $7,460. This last option features narrow tires, no fenders, minimal accessories, and an SRAM Red, compact 20-speed gear train.
