Ghisallo Adds Beechwood Handlebars, Bamboo Tubular Rims
Ghisallo’s been making wood bicycle rims for ages, more recently adding carbon fiber reinforced clinchers and 29er tubulars. Now, they’ve started working with Bamboo for their hoops and introduced Beechwood handlebars.
The Beech handlebars above retail for $100 to $125 depending on style. They also offer carbon fiber “shells” that sandwich the bars around the stem clamp area to protect them from damage and pinch stresses. The bamboo tubular rims (shown below) complement the variety of other woods offered and present a very sustainable option.
