It seems that we’ve seen a lot of wood bicycles and bicycle components recently, but that didn’t stop these beautiful handlebars from gaining our attention. Combining some seriously impressive woodwork with attractive, functional designs, the handlebars are the work of woodOOcycles out of La Garriga, Spain. Founded in 1993, the small wood shop makes each bar by hand making each piece unique. Designed mostly for the urban bicycle market, the bars are offered in 4 different styles in multiple colors and finishes.
Love the look of the craftsmanship, but aren’t sold on wooden handlebars? Then take a look at the stunning display racks or flat pedals plus see how a handlebar comes to life, next…
Most of the handlebar designs by woodOOcycles feature the same diameter all the way through. Predominately made in 25.4mm, bars are also available in 31.8. Depending on your needs, handlebars are available in straight, curved, bullhorn, and riser designs. Straight bars come in solid and laminated woods, while the rest of the curved bars all use a laminated design with multiple finish options to fit your ride. Using hard woods and the laminated construction helps guarantee their strength and two aluminum dowels reinforce the bar where the stem clamps. All handlebars are finished with a coat of polyurethane, the company doesn’t recommend their use in “prolonged exposure to rain.”
Available on their website, or their store on etsy, current woodOOcycles handlebars range in price from $51, to $129 depending on the design.
Love the look, but don’t want a wooden handlebar? Or maybe you want pedals to match your wooden handlebar. Either way, these aluminum flat pedals with wooden accents will fit the bill. Rolling on ball bearings with a chromoly axle, the pedals are available in a few finishes for $64.20.
There is no shortage of beautifully designed storage solutions, but woodOOcycles has a few more to add to the pool. From a simple but elegant hook, to clean posts, to the laminated shelf, there are a few to choose from. Storage racks start with the Twin at $57.78, and go up to $102 for Hank the hook, and $115 for the Levit-1 shelf.
