Would building a bike or a recumbent out of composite ice hockey sticks be a good idea? Answered

I'm thinking of building one without metal. Any answers or tips?

it wouldnt be a BAD idea - but the composite/carbonfibre/fiberglass can be touchy to 'weld' the parts together...and using different sticks yields different 'flexibility' - each stick is tailored to have a very specific flex. May or may not be a problem...

Define "good".

I have no idea whether it would be ridable, but it would certainly look cool, especially if you left as many of the sticks complete as possible.

If it doesn't ride, call it "art" and sell it on Etsy.
