Because Regular Bicycles Aren’t Flimsy Enough, Cardboard Bicycles Are Now Apparently a Thing

A bicycle made of cardboard may seem an unlikely form of transport – but one inventor claims to have developed one that costs just £10 to make.

By folding over sheets to double their strength, he claims the machine is durable, waterproof and costs very little to produce.

This is where I don’t even pretend to understand bicyclists. They spend half their time bitching that the roads aren’t safe for them, and apparently the other half of their time trying to find ways to make bicycles less safe. Like do bicyclists ENJOY going to the emergency room? I just don’t get it.

Oh and I don’t want to hear about how you “sprayed it with waterproof resin.” Your bike is made of fucking cardboard. I guess me saying that the thing is going to crumple like paper when a car hits it kind of loses its meaning when the bike is literally made of fucking paper. And cars are the least of your worries. I can’t wait to see some hipster ride through a puddle that’s a little too deep and find himself sitting in a pile of mush while he rings his handlebar bell. Poetry.

I hate bicyclists. My only regret is that I can't grow a beard.

  1. How old is your car? I have a bike still going from 1975 that can do 100km a week. If anything is flimsy I’d say it was the car.

    • Let’s test this hypothesis! I’ll park my car, and you ride your bike at it as fast as you can. 100km in a week sounds like you sure can get going pretty fast! If you get your bike up to full speed, you should have no trouble obliterating that flimsy car!
