IT’S MY BIKE enters into partnership with bamboo bike manufacturer my Boo

IT’S MY BIKE now works with my Boo, a Kiel-based bike manufacturer, which mainly manufactures bikes with bamboo. The company sources this renewable raw material in Ghana and has the bamboo parts hand-crafted locally. These components are then assembled in the German city of Kiel. 

From now on, my Boo will be equipping all its e-bikes with IT’S MY BIKE technology as standard. Customers are now given the option of having all digital services activated in the newly developed my Boo app free of charge for three years. In addition to digital theft protection with a movement alarm, the app can also be used to analyse ride data and acquire insurance packages at a reduced price. An accident assistant can also be activated, which will notify any emergency contacts a rider has added if the rider has an accident.

 

“The IT’S MY BIKE smart technology allows our customers’ e-bikes to be located in the event of theft and also retrieve them in most cases,” states Jonas Stolzke, Managing Director of my Boo. “As a result, the customer gets their bike back instead of needing to buy a new one. This consequently helps to conserve resources, thus underpinning our concept of fair, sustainable business.”

 

The bicycle manufacturer not only has its bamboo frames made in Ghana. It also funds a local project, which built a school in the country in 2019. The region also benefits from bike production as it has already created more than 40 jobs there.

 

“With IT’S MY BIKE, we not only return bicycles to their owners. Bike recovery also saves on the material and transport costs that purchasing a new bike would involve,” states Jürgen Veith, Chief Executive Officer of IT’S MY BIKE. “We’re delighted to have acquired a very special customer in my Boo.”
