A Cardboard Bicycle?

In New York City many more people seem to be riding bicycles due to expensive public transportation fees and because they want to do something to help the environment.

In Israel an inventor has created a new type of bicycle which is not made of any metal parts.  Indeed, most of the bicycle is made out of cardboard.

1)  How successful do you think this new invention will be?

2)  Given the fact that many people like wearing and using "brand" items, do you think that people who ride this bike will be looked down on?

3)  Do you think that this type of bicycle is really necessary?

4)  The inventor claims that this bicycle will change various manufacturing trends around the world.  Do you agree with him?

5)  Would you ever ride a bicycle like this?  Why or why not?

6)  Do you think this bicycle can reach a market other than the market of "very poor" people? 

7)  Would you invest money in this type of project?
