Boo RS-R carbon and bamboo road bike with hydraulic disc brakes and integrated seat mast.
At last year’s show, and probably at this year’s too, Boo Bicycles impresses with some super sleek bamboo and metal bikes with a couple one-off or prototype parts from others hanging on them. This year, founder Nick Frey says he’s got more than a couple surprises shooting up:
BIKERUMOR: What are your main building materials?
NICK: Bamboo (always!) with carbon fiber or aluminum.
BIKERUMOR: What’s new with your company since NAHBS last year?
NICK: A lot…we had a successful Kickstarter in May 2013 for the new www.aluboobikes.com and have been focused on perfecting our craft with Boo as well as introducing Aluboo to a wider audience. We are building a dealer network in the US, selling fat bikes like mad, and driving around the country in a decked out 1998 Bluebird All American: BooBus Maximus. The BooBus will be going to many of the biggest events in the US, meeting with dealers, and riding all the local Wednesday Night World Championships. We have some great partners in TrainingPeaks, BRAAAP, and Pactimo—they’ll be stocking us with some things we need for the road, both in the bus and on bikes. READ MORE ->
