Cardboard isn’t exactly the material you’d use for a bicycle! But as this fellow learned, with some ingenuity and a garage stocked with tools (and, admittedly, some 3D design software) you can develop a cardboard bicycle that isn’t just a cutout fake. It’s weatherproof, carries several over two hundred kilos of weight, and costs only $9 in base materials.
Sure, adding the non-cardboard items like brakes and so on will set you back another $60-90 dollars, but the inventor is hoping that mass-marketing of the concept – for which he is currently working on a business case – will make it attractive to cheaply build large numbers of bikes.
