Will a frame made of cardboard be as stiff as scandium / aluminium / titanium or steel?

Has anyone rode a frame made of cardboard?

My friend seems to feel I may well encounter problems with mud and rain.

Any views would be gratefully received!

this all depends on the quality of the toilet tissue the cardboard tube came from.

i like sharmon for the toptube because its lite but the downtube should be from cheaper tissue roll because it will be heavier and stiffer.
