Cardboard Bicycle - Savior from Bike Thefts

Ridiculous is the first thought that pop into some people's mind when they are first introduced to a bicycle made of cardboard.

A sheet of paper is so thin that it tears so easily. Bunch many sheets together & is tough to tear then. Cardboard which is a form of paper has already been used to package more fragile items inside them. So to me i'm open to the concept of cardboard bicycle.

To me its greatest appeal is the price. Being so affordable at US$20 it makes for an awesome commmuting bicycle with no worries about theft.
  • Waterproof
  • Fireproof
  • Recycled materials
  • US$20
  • Tires are puncture proof (made of reconstituted rubber from old car tires)
  • Tires do not need inflating & can last for 10 years
  • Brake mechanism, wheel & pedal bearings made of recycled substances
  • A car timing belt is used instead of a chain
  • ~ 9 kg
Imagine at US$20, it is an awesome investment to buy one & cycle around the neighboorhood. Why bother paying $ for public transport & vehicle petrol for a neighboorhood trip to those blood sucking big corpserations?

Today is damn hot & i see threads in message board lamenting about the crazy heat today. Do we still need more greenhouse gases from fossil fuel vehicles to make it even hotter?
