Officine Firenze Milani

Wooden bicycle handlebars with the grace of Italian style

by Graham Hiemstra in Design on 03 August 2011

Inspired by the elegance of vintage bicycles that cruise the streets of Florence, Officine Firenze Milani creates beautifully-crafted wooden handlebars as the ultimate accent to any bike. The bars are made in Italy, using individually selected materials to produce the highest caliber wooden handlebars available.

With a semi-gloss finish, the natural grain of each teak, mahogany, walnut and ash layer lends different personalities to each design. A bisection of aluminum provides structural reinforcement (and a nice industrial accent) without sacrificing comfort—although longer rides may require gloves.

The Officine also hand-restores neglected bicycles using vintage components along with wooden handlebars and rims to create desirable one-of-a-kind transformations.
