How to Make a Bike out of Cardboard



I love hearing stories of people who have a crazy idea and somehow they just can't let it go until they push it as far as it can go.  Izhar Gafni was that way about building a cardboard bike.  He heard a story about someone who built a boat out of cardboard and somehow, from there, he got obsessed with the idea of building a bike of cardboard.  I'd love to see the technical details of how the hubs, headset, pedals and bottom bracket work.  Those moving parts pare probably quite tricky.  The nicely shot video below give you a little insight into his process (although without the technical details).
