The Boo Warranty
Boo, Aluboo, and Alubooyah frames are warranted by Boo Bicycles, Inc. (“Boo”), 1750 Laporte Avenue, Fort Collins, CO 80521.
This limited warranty covers only Boo/Aluboo/Alubooyah bicycle frames purchased directly from Boo or from authorized Boo dealers in the United States. If you purchased your Boo/Aluboo/Alubooyah outside of the United States, the specific warranty will be governed by the law of the country in which it was purchased.
Boo warrants to the original owner that the frame shall be free of defective materials and/or workmanship as follows:
- All Boo frames for ten (10) years from the date of purchase
- All Aluboo and Alubooyah frames for five (5) years from the date of purchase
- Custom paint/finish for one (1) year from the date of purchase
Dings, scratches, and other damage to the paint/finish of your frame due to normal usage and wear and tear is not covered by the Boo Limited Warranty. Touch-up paint is available on request for a reasonable charge.
If your frame experiences paint or finish failure (paint or clearcoat flaking off of the bike), it may be eligible for warranty repair or replacement.
The Boo Limited Warranty applies only to Boo, Aluboo, and Alubooyah frames. Any component warranty claims must be made directly with the component’s manufacturer.
NOT COVERED BY THIS WARRANTY:
This limited warranty will be void in the event of, and does not cover:
- Normal wear and tear
- Cosmetic splitting (see here for more information)
- Defects, failures, or malfunctions that result from:
- Abuse, misuse, alteration, modification, accident, neglect, downhill racing or stunt riding
- Improper assembly, installation or maintenance
- Improperly repaired/sealed splits, or
- Other abnormal, excessive or improper conditions or use.
*Damage due to normal wear and tear can be repaired for a reasonable charge.
Bamboo is a natural material and can occasionally split, depending on the climate in which you and your bike live. This is normal and should be expected, to a small degree, over the lifetime of your frame.
These splits are cosmetic and do not affect the structural integrity of your frame.
However, while splits are normal and may occur, it is important to fill the splits and seal your bike’s tubes from the elements to keep moisture from penetrating the frame and causing larger issues (and voiding your frame’s warranty).
To request a split repair kit, please email email@example.com
