    This. This is my favourite.

    Out of the many April Fool jokes that are doing the rounds online (some far, far better than others, it has to be said), this is my favourite so far. Firebox’s Re-Cycle Cardboard bike. Which ironically, is not suitable for recycling.

    Cardboard wheels, paper chain, rip/tear saddle, paper allen keys… the page even has ‘reviews’ from ‘customers’. Of particular note is the user who had an unfortunate accident after encountering a smouldering cigarette butt.

    Not for Irish weather though.Even with its plastic coating ‘for durability’
