Cardboard Bike in Stores Soon

Inventor Izhar Gafni made a Cardboard Bike which is slated for mass production. The cost to produce one of these bikes is around $9 since the materials being used are inexpensive, the selling price is expected to start at $60. I was surprised to read that the weight that the bike can handle is 485 pounds, I am thinking that this is greater than the typical off the shelf bike in a department store. The inspiration for the bike is a cardboard canoe, who knew there were so many things being made from cardboard!
