A $9 Bike Made of Cardboard

Israel’s Izhar Gafni has designed a bike that can be produced for $9 and support riders up to 310 pounds. 

“It always excites me to take negligible materials and then turn them into something completely different; something useful..."

Love innovative, beautiful, and functional work with paper. Reminds me of this post from 6 years (!!) ago about Japanese architect Shigeru Ban and his cardboard refugee homes. Awesomesauce.

310 pouns? Jesus, it'd even bear me!

may want to invest in a metal one -- structural integrity might be compromised in all that wet where you're at. ;)
