DVDave: Magorn: mtbhucker: I like how subby ripped off Colbert from last night. Subby is bad and should feel bad.Is subby, didn't watch Colbert or actually read the article, but it's a pretty obvious joke
SacriliciousBeerSwiller: How is a paper bike that will deteriorate over time cheaper in the long run than a metal one that will last forever?
Gyrfalcon: Snargi: Hey subby, try reading TFA before making your witty headline."In testing the durability of the treated cardboard, Gafni said he immersed a cross-section in a water tank for several months and it retained all its hardened characteristics."Yeah, that's what he says. He also says he uses a "secret organic formula" to keep it waterproof and fireproof.Forgive me if I'm skeptical of anything that's so perfect and yet so secret, at least until the secret is revealed. If it's revealed that the organic formula is in fact a hydrocarbon-based polymer, well, then having a cardboard bike won't have gained us anything, will it?
factoryconnection: It is almost as if some Farkers don't, and I know this is crazy, but hear me out... they don't read the articles.
