How far can I ride on a Cardboard Bike?

Most of these were made of steel, plywood and 3D printing, as well as the electronics. I generally recycle most of the parts from my old projects. The motors and electronics can be reused, steel can by cut up and welded together again to make something else, and 3D printed parts get mashed up by Handy Dan’s 3D prints and turned into flower pots. But what if I could make a project that can be even more easily recycled? I previously made a cardboard skateboard, which as pretty tough. It was made of five cardboard tubes glued together attached to some 3D printed ends which had normal skateboard wheels attached to. But could I make the wheels of a vehicle out of cardboard too?

There’s a Facebook group and everything: https://www.facebook.com/groups/287089964833488/ XROBOTS Former toy designer, current YouTube maker and general robotics, electrical and mechanical engineer, I’m a fan of doing it yourself and innovation by trial and error. My channel is where I share some of my useful and not-so-useful inventions, designs and maker advice. Iron Man is my go-to cosplay, and 3D printing can solve most issues - broken bolts, missing parts, world hunger, you name it. XRobots is the community around my content where you can get in touch, share tips and advice, and more build FAQs, schematics and designs are also available.
