Treehouse Elevator by Bike

Well here’s a new one for the archives of Utility Cycling – a bicycle powered treehouse elevator. There are so many things about this that are just right. For one, the treehouse. Who wouldn’t want to live in, or at least sleep in, a treehouse? Two, the bicycle-powered lift system. Because climbing an elevator “six and a half million times a day” isn’t so awesome, but pedaling a up a tree is. Also, did I mention there’s a treehouse? Anyhow, the video below shows Ethan Schlussler’s amazing treehouse bicycle lift system, which he rigged up as a means to get up to the treehouse that he intends to live or “at least sleep” in. What a cool way to use your bike, Ethan!Via MAKE.
