    I bet if I covered my bike in cardboard it would look just like that (if I didn't have normal spokes on the wheels).

    Brilliant! I'm not into bikes much, but mind is buzzing with all sorts of possible uses for cardboard now.

    Until you get a crack on the paint of wheels or frame and moisture (or just plain water) starts doing its job.

    I can say I have seen lot of packaging in the last 20 years but not that cardboard. Has it any specific use?

    Just seeing whats new on the cardboard bike story. (Not really that much yet of course.)

    Izhar Gafni(inventor) has definitely linked up with Nimrod Elmish(entrepreneur) as bushiness partner.

    As a additional object to be made from cardboard, there also looking at a wheelchair. (kinda old article)
    More recent article from www.alaskadispatch.com

    And there is a dedicated webpage up in for the newly founded bushiness endeavor.
    http://www.cardboardtech.com/
    (currently just a single page with general info. And some related media linkups like YouTube,Flicker,etc.)

    ---

    Oops, "business endeavor" of course ... I hope.

    year. While paying the old money famly trust alot lot of money,all the dream

    cars you posted,the bell heirs drive them without every doing a days work.
