Performance Hardwood Frames

Say goodbye to traditional compromises. We've designed our city and touring adventure bikes using wood as the primary frame material. The vibration-soaking design creates the ultimate ride experience. You'll immediately feel the difference of the fast, smooth and connected ride.


We've achieved the ideal balance between stiffness, weight and compliance. Feel the responsiveness and power transfer when you go all out.
- Complete builds start around 22 lbs -


Hardwood soaks up bumps and dampens out rough rides. Ride longer and go anywhere with less impact on your body.


Experience the feeling of being one with the road. You'll feel solidly connected and yet protected from the harsh road surfaces. Best of all, we source our wood from sustainable sources.

Ditch the plans and see where the ride takes you.  The no.124 adventure bike features an upgraded hard maple frameset with massive tire clearance, thru-axles, flat mount hydraulic disc brakes, and internal cable routing.

What a great ride! Gravel, crevices, rocks, potholes all sucked up by this incredibly designed bicycle. Standing up on a climb proved that the bottom bracket has plenty of built-in stiffness. Can't wait to go for another ride!! Thanks guys for the passion, hours and thoroughness that went into my new favorite bike.

"The geometry is bang-on, so setting up fit was a delight, to the point that I see running drops or flats working great. It felt like I could race Cross, while having the vibration dampening I love in the rear triangle; no noticeable flex for chain stays close to 46cm. Meticulous craftmanship that pairs well with creative component solutions."

"When I first encountered the Urban Scout, my brain immediately sized up the model and computed two things – beautiful, yet heavy. But when I went to pick the bike up, I was astounded at how light it was. [...] While these bikes might look stunning, they are actually much more impressive when they hit the road. It’s like being one with a bike. [...] I just wanted to keep riding!"

Casey Kelly

Buffalo Design Studio

"Normal Bikes are both beautiful and functional. They're made by hand, and made very meticulously. The thought, engineering, and care that has gone into the development of the bikes is unparalleled. [...] Jess and Chris are an amazing couple who are invested in supporting the cycling community by creating a unique product. Not only do you end up with an incredibly well-made, unique wooden bike to show off around town; you'll be supporting an amazing local business and the people behind it."
