2 Cardboard Bicycle

Talk about going green! Ryan Perkins of Pacific SouthWest Container made this cardboard single speed from a PDF CAD drawing done on Bike Forest Pro. Excellent craftsmanship and attention to detail, I must say.

Now if you have to ride it, you'll have to go on one of Carmichael's diet program. Or you know what'll happen. It is also so lightweight that to effectively lock it in place, you'll need two 500 kilogram weights on each side of the fork as shown in the picture. One will not do since it'll mangle the fork on one side and then the bike will only go round and round. Okay, wait...they're made out of cardboard too. (Jeez, that poor bike is being raped by chains)

Jk..See more pictures at the Bike Forest Blog.

    I hope they used some sort of fire retardant in case a fire breaks out in the forest

  2. Looking at the bottom bracket, I think you can use that as a cross bike.


Thank you. I read every single comment.
