Cardboard bicycle for $20

This is a great idea by Izhar Gafni, from Israel. He is close to producing it for real.

It’s expected to cost a mere $20 and weigh about 20 lbs (9 kg) — that’s 65 percent lighter than an average metal ride. In fact, this bicycle doesn’t use any metal parts at all — the solid tires are made of reconstituted rubber and a car timing belt is used instead of a chain. 

I’d buy one just to go back and forth to the store with. It’s also a great idea for kids, because goodness knows I went through 3 bikes as I was growing up.

I sat on cardboard furniture once in a museum and found it surprisingly comfortable. I thought it would be awful and uncomfortable, but it was quite nice!

Am my own Sugar Daddy. Am a millionaire at 36 after getting out of $60K of student debt in 18 months, a little over a decade earlier, using TheBudgetingTool.com. I have worked 50% of my career (taking 1-2 year breaks), and quadrupled my income within 2 years of graduating, going from $65K to $260K with an average lifetime savings rate of 50%. I have 11 side incomes that are on track in 2020 to make me $50K - $75K. I could retire today if I wanted, but love my work-life balance as a freelancing consultant in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math). I am all about balance - between time and money, and also enjoying my money. I also post daily on Instagram @saverspender.

    That’s absolutely incredible! I don’t really have the urge to ride a cardboard bicycle, but I’m curious to see what else could be made out of it!

      I think as a society we are really missing the point of how valuable recycled goods can be.

      Not everything has to be fresh and new to be great.
