my Boo’s bamboo bike frames are hand-crafted in Ghana – over 80 hours goes into each frame, carefully selecting and drying the bamboo, bonding it together with hemp fibres and epoxy resin at the joints with aluminium inserts where needed, and sanding the joints smooth. They’re then varnished, and shipped to Germany where they’re assembled into complete bikes.
