Cardboard bicycle[edit]

  • ... that a cardboard bicycle has been made that weighs just 20 pounds (9.1 kg) and can support up to 220 kilograms (490 lb)?

  • Symbol confirmed.svg Article is new enough, and the length and sourcing of both the article and the hook meet DYK requirements. There are almost more sources than sentences in the article. My only suggestion is that the low-cost aspect could also be highlighted, and may I suggest ALT1 "... that a cardboard bicycle has been made that weighs just 20 pounds (9.1 kg), can support up to 220 kilograms (490 lb) and be mass produced at a retail cost of 20 USD?" or some variation thereof to make it even hookier.
