    A Bicycle Powered Tree House Elevator

    A Bicycle Powered Tree House Elevator
    Home  /  Outdoor


    This is a 30-foot bicycle powered tree house elevator. You just hop on and peddle yourself to the top. Idaho, who built a bicycle-powered treehouse elevator because he got tired of having to climb a ladder to get to his 30-foot something treehouse.
    Ethan explains: “It was originally a 20-something speed bicycle, but first gear wasn’t slow enough, so I cut the large sprocket off the front, and welded it on the rear to get a lower gear. I also had to do away with the de-railers and make a new chain tensioner.” He adds that he’s planning to build walls and insulate his treehouse in a few weeks, as he plans to actually sleep or even live in it eventually.
