About Us

 

I started Boone Technologies in 1993 with a CNC machine in the basement just for fun. I tinkered and made some products like custom oversize chainrings for HPV's and titanium cogs.  I ran an ad for titanium cogs in a single bike magazine and was overwhelmed at the response. I had to quit my 9 to 5 job and make bike parts for a living. I had to hire employees and buy another machine. My wife Trish and I decided at the last minute to exhibit at the Interbike show and were amazed at the dealer response; we didn't get to sit down, go to the bathroom, or stop talking the whole time we were there! Photographers for magazines had to make 4 return trips just to get to the booth because there were so many people around! Within months, I had to get a commercial shop and got larger machines. I developed new products such as titanium chainrings, the Helixx bottom bracket, TWIST! cranks, nickel plated aluminum chainrings, and titanium wedding rings. We had distributors in 56 countries all around the world. In 1997, the market slowed down for aftermarket bike products, and I accepted an offer at GT bicycles, with whom I had dealt with on the Olympic super bikes. I programmed their laser that cut the bike tubes. In late 1998, GT was bought by the owners of Schwinn, so I left there before they shut down. We decided to continue on with making titanium rings with Boone Rings, and have done that full time from 1998 until 2021.  In February of 2021, we decided to dive back into the bike business and revive the Boone Technologies brand after over 20 years.  The support we've received since rebuilding the brand has been remarkable to say the least.  Boone Technologies is now located in Kennesaw, Georgia and I design and make the bike parts along with my son Tyler.  Trish and Chrissy handle the paperwork, finances, and shipping.
