@GIANT-STEPS: You're correct, and I agree, but the idea is to make as "green" a bike as possible. While he doesn't come clean on the subject of the chemical make-up of the (epoxy?) coating he uses to treat the cardboard, he does say it's biodegradable and the tires are old automobile tires that have been reused as the bike's tires.
In the end, the cause is more a laudable one than an effort to provide a long-term solution or product. I think it's great! For $20, I can figure out if I like cycling enough to spend $2,000, or more, on a really nice bike. Plus, once the bike "breaks down," (supposedly) it's all recyclable. I really like the idea of that!
