Cardboard bike that will retail for $20 ready to be put in production

 

BikingToronto highlighted this cool invention last week, and the Star is picking up on it now.  It’s a very neat story, so we don’t mind highlighting it again.

Are you ready to ride the cardboard bike?

Israeli inventor Izhar Gafni has created a functioning cardboard bicycle that he hopes to put into mass production in the next three months, according to a Reuters report.

Despite being made almost entirely of cardboard, Gafni says the bike is strong, durable, fireproof and waterproof. And because it is made of cardboard, it will also be cheap. Gafni’s business partner Nimrod Elmish told Reuters that he expects the bike to sell at retail stores for $20.
