Cardboard bike for £15?

Cardboard bicycle
I thought this a joke until I saw the article - 21 year old, Phil Bridge of Stockport has designed this bike - the frame is made out of cardboard normally used in industrial packaging and could be produced for as little as £3. Once the wheels and chain have been added the total price might rise to about £15. See The Daily Telegraph article here - the photo also comes from that article. I can't see them really catching on - what we really need are bikes to last made from steel and all the others stuff - recycled steel yes....anyhow talking ofbikes I had a wee go on an electric bike the other day - now thety really have developed since I tried one years ago - see more here.
