Cardboard Bicycle

Against the advice of his engineer friends, Israeli inventor Izhar Gafni built a working bicycle out of cardboard. He's now ready to make some money out of his invention. A neat story of how somebody smart and persistent can create something compelling out of something we take for granted.

Check out his promo video:

If you can't wait for a cardboard bike, perhaps you might want to build your own bamboo bike:
