Ski Mountaineering Bike

by Jacob Lapenna

The AluBOOYAH ski mountaineering bike has been 6 months in the making; and draws inspiration from a recent winter trip to Torreys Peak, a 14,275-foot peak in Clear Creek, Colorado. While climbing the peak, I noticed a pristine couloir full of 75 degree sloped ice across the valley. This bike was designed for a trip to climb that ice–a trip … Read More »

Boo is, and has always been, a company for innovation. From crafting the first prototypes at Princeton we have pushed the envelope, not only in terms of … Read More »

Three Weeks Til NAHBS

by Douglas Ansel

In an industry speeding towards economies of scale and mass-produced carbon frames, the custom framebuilder can seem a relic of the past, harkening back to the olden days of lugged steel frames. Custom gave way to cost effective offerings or “standard” race bikes costing over ten grand. But Richard Sachs, Craig Calfee, and their contemporaries – including Boo! – are far … Read More »

Braap Nutrition Bars: How Do They Stack Up?

by Douglas Ansel

  It’s hard to forget those times earlier in my cycling career when I would head out the door for a long ride with four sports nutrition bars (no, I won’t name brand names here) in my jersey pockets. The first two, three hours of the ride were great: the sun was out, my legs were good, whatever flavors I … Read More »

Boo-TrainingPeaks Sponsor Profile: Braaap Nutrition

by Douglas Ansel

For all the hype about its short duration and races lasting an hour at most, cyclocross takes a lot of time, and a lot of fuel. From double days training on the bike and running to spending hours at a venue, pre-riding lap after lap before warming up and then racing full gas for an hour, the energy requirements are … Read More »

Here comes 2014: Boo is growing, and here is what is new!

by Douglas Ansel

With the new year almost upon us, changes are on the horizon for Boo. We have grown over the past few years and that is starting to have real effects on how we build bikes, what we offer, and how we interact with customers and dealers. Once a purely custom frame business, we moved into offering stock frames with our … Read More »

Boo – TrainingPeaks Sponsor Spotlight: TrainingPeaks

by Douglas Ansel

In the old days, training advice was wisdom passed down the generations, adages harkening back to Eddy Merckx’s “ride lots” and Eddy Borysewicz’s Eastern Bloc advice. Training was much more art than science, our efforts gauged in speed or crude measures of exertion, our knowledge of what efforts racing required of the body expressed in vague terms. Then technology crept … Read More »
