This cardboard bicycle is lightweight but allows a heavyweight load. Israeli designer Izhar Gafni was inspired to create this gem after hearing about a cardboard canoe. His cardboard bike called the Alfa, weighs 20lbs and uses a belt-driven pedal system that means it doesn’t require any maintenance. It is unbelievably low priced ($5 to $12)
Note to entrepreneurs thinking of giving up on their dreams: engineers told Gafni that his idea was impossible. He sure proved them wrong and has secured his place firmly on Origin of Cool.
