A Bike Made From Recycled Carpet, Costs $229

Bike Made From Recycled Carpet

We had seen many bicycles models made from all sorts of materials. But making a working bike from recycled carpet definitely sounds like it's taking things too far.

The bike, which is a real, actual thing you can buy for $229, is targeted at children. As such, it can start life as a tricycle, but then some intelligent geometry adjusts the height and length of the ride, meaning it can grow with your kids. When they are ready, you can also ditch the third wheel to make a proper bicycle.

As for the material - it is made using recycled consumer carpets. They are collected from homes in the US, have the backing shaved, and then are shredded and turned into resin pellets, ready for moulding into a frame shape. Clever stuff.
