Bamboo Bikes 2017

SUSTAINABLE. SOCIAL. UNIQUE. A product is not only distinguished by its function, but also by its history. Outstanding technology, natural resources, loving handicraft and social commitment - all in one product: my Boo bamboo bikes.


SUSTAINABLE.


Bamboo is one of the fastest growing plants in the world. After cutting it down, it grows back to a height of 20 meters within 3 years. Ghanaian bamboo tubes consist of solid segments and a thick outer wall making them extremely durable, stiff and lightweight, thus perfect features for bicycles.


SOCIAL.


We build our frames together with our partner, the “Yonso Project�, a nonprofit organization in Ghana. All proceeds made in Ghana go directly into educational scholarships and microloans. Currently, 20 employees work for the project and receive fair payment; their jobs are permanent and give them a sense of perspective.


UNIQUE.


Every my Boo frame is unique and made with loving handicraft within 90 hours in Ghana. All bamboo bikes are professionally mounted with high quality, reliable components at our factory in Kiel, Germany. You can customize your my Boo according to your own personal desires.


Our Production in Ghana Bamboo grows abundantly in Ghana. After harvesting, the tubes are dried for several months; afterwards, the best-looking tubes are selected to build the frames. Precise symmetry is accomplished while assembling the frame by using a German-developed clamping device (jig). The bamboo tubes are carefully joined with hemp fibers and epoxy resin, then smoothed down and perfected. Every frame is carefully inspected with an extensive checklist.


Our Quality Requirement Our bamboo frames are tested by a German testing institute to comply with European standards. Furthermore, a high-grade varnish - as protection against wind and inclement weather - is applied to the frames by a qualified specialist in Germany. All bamboo bikes are professionally mounted with high quality, reliable components at our factory in Kiel, Germany. The final assembly of each bike is done by trained bicycle mechanics.


With my Boo around the World A lot of customers already used our bamboo bikes all over the world. One special story is about Tim and Karina Poser. Both experienced an incredible journey with their specially equipped my Boo bamboo bikes. They rode from Hamburg, Germany, to China. On their journey they covered 18,000 kilometers in 365 days, while venturing through a variety of different countries, cultures, deserts and mountains, as well as extreme hot and cold conditions.
