    This Bicycle if you do not believe it is made of cardboard completely, absolutely no metal parts,chain is a car pulley and tire are solid rubber,and if you think the rain would damage the bike the person says he put it in water with no damage because it is covered with a waterproofs substance and for the price of $20.0 in the country that was built, what more could you ask for..trlrl.

    Cardboard. That's cool. But, you want a real challenge - Styrofoam!

    I have a friend who studied building a racing sidecar outfit made from cardboard, but he decided against it. The fibres of the cardboard would separate under the loads involved, and it would go all baggy, the way old cardboard boxes do. I wonder how the cardboard bicycle builders have overcome the problem.
