£6 "eco" bike

Anyone got more information on this bike?

The cardboard bicycle defies all preconceptions; it is strong, waterproof, humidity-resistant and most crucially, at £6, cheap to build.

I want one aswell.

I'm taking that it would be the frame and wheels which would be £6, you then need to stick some tyres, brakes and a saddle.

I still cant see how the gearing works. Almost certain it would have to be a fixie, but HOW? Thinking Thinking
