Aluboo, by the makers of Boo Bikes, uses a special kind of bamboo that's stronger and denser other other bamboo species. Unlike the more expensive Boo Bike, the Aluboo uses aluminium and bamboo instead of carbon fibre and bamboo. This brings down the cost of making the bike considerably, making it more affordable. The bamboos are positioned on the bike such that vibrations from the road get absorbed by the bamboo before it reaches the rider. If you've always wanted a Boo Bike but can't afford it, the Aluboo is the next best thing. They've been successfully funded through Kickstarter and will soon be available for everyone.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]$1000 Buy | Share| [post_categories sep=", " before="More: "][post_tags sep=", " before="Related: "][/vc_column_text][vc_raw_js el_position="last"] 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 [/vc_raw_js][/vc_column][vc_column width="1/2"][vc_video link="http://vimeo.com/52419640" el_position="first last"][/vc_column][/vc_row]
