The Alfa weighs 20lbs, yet supports riders up to 24 times its weight. It's mostly cardboard and 100% recycled materials, yet uses a belt-driven pedal system that makes it maintenance free. And, maybe best of all, it's project designed to be manufactured at about $9 to $12 per unit (and just $5 for a kids version), making it not only one of the most sustainable bikes you could imagine, but amongst the cheapest, depending on the markup.

  • Very cool!

    Though I doubt you'll see many 400 pounders on it...

    How's it ride in the rain? :rolleyes:

    Great...now I have to add scotch tape to my riding kit...(and panniers are real cheap! 2 cardboard boxes!)
