Nick Frey, owner of Boo Bicycles, joins us this morning for a discussion about the upcoming Leadville 100 mountain bike race. One hundred miles across the high-altitude, extreme terrain of the Colorado Rockies, this event was created for only the most determined athletes. Starting at 10,152 feet and climbing to 12,424 feet, you’ll be challenged to catch your breath — while the views try to take it away.

Boo Bicycles builds racing level bamboo-carbon bike frames by hand. Every frame is custom made to order and all types of bikes are created, from road to ‘cross to mountain to touring to townie. And everything in-between.  The goal of Boo Bicycles has been to create high performance bicycles that are also supple, smooth, and comfortable. These traits had previously been mutually exclusive: you could not have your cake and eat it, too. However, Boo has successfully married two composite materials, one natural, one synthetic, to create the optimum blend of performance and comfort
