Our Story - What does my Boo stand for?

We assemble your individual bicycle of your dreams for you. We do not just believe that a bicycle has to meet perfectly all your needs, but furthermore we are convinced that every single part of our value chain should profit in equal measure. That's why we generate and secure jobs in Ghana. Our income grants access to good education and a self-determined life to children in the region.

Our fix targets till 2020:

  • Every customer is able to find their dream bamboo bike for a appropiate price
  • We finance and operate our school in Ghana with the income of our production
  • More than 60 secured and fair paid jobs have been generated in Ghana

Ecucation is the Key

We are convinced that education is the key to a child's self-determined future. Therefore, in 2017, we laid the foundation of the Yonso Project Model School together with our Ghanaian partner. Upon completion, children from the Ashanti Region will learn critical thinking and self-dependence there.

Independently from that, over 300 scholarships were allocated and numerous libraries were equipped int he Ashanti Region since 2014. Moreover our Bike to School project has been a great success.

Excellent bicycles for every range of use

Bamboo is a unique material. It is light, extremely stable and is matchless shock-absorbing. We combine these excellent characteristics with the best bike parts you can get.

We are travelling to Ghana annually and optimize the manufacturing processes and quality control, to ensure every my Boo frame is perfect. In a caring procedure we control our frames by following a detailed checklist.

Every my boo bamboo bike is assembled by hand at our workshop in Kiel in Northern Germany and is checked by our master-mechanics. When everything is just perfect, your dream-bike starts on its journey to you.

Affectionately Handcrafted

Every bamboo bike requires more than 80 hours of affectionate craftmanship in Ghana. The chosen bamboo canes get attached with glued hemp ropes. These joints are polished and perfected in meticulous handiwork afterwards.

We were able to generate more than 40 permanent and fair paid jobs in Ghana by now!

After passing a detailed quality check, the frames are varnished and shipped to Kiel, where they get assembled to your individual unique bamboo bike.

We are a team of 10 by now, developing and improving your my Boo with an high level of motivation each day.

We are a young team that operates from our headquarter in Kiel. We are coordinating the production, sales, marketing, product development and our engagement in Ghana from here.

Everything started back in 2012 when Maximilian and Jonas received a photo of a bamboo bicycle from their friend Niklas in Ghana:

Their excitement to build bicycles of a sustainable material in Ghana was huge. After a short research, their Ghanaian partner "The Yonso Project" was found. This way, we were able to institute a cycle, which makes the whole region profit from our engagement right from the start.
