We have seen a lot of creative and also weird recycling inventions, bikes perhaps at the top of it all. Well, some have turned bikes into some form of furniture but as a whole, this is the first time that the bike was made into an elevator.
The bike was made to offer vertical transport solution for a 30-foot tree house. Ethan Schussler came up with the alternative idea to offer him an easier way to get to the top of the tree house. Ethan customized an old bike, making it move along a giant chain and thus a personal and unusual elevator which slowly rises and descends through the magic of pedalling.
As the pedals turn, the user is lifted into air as if in flight. Once Schussler reaches the top, he can easily climb over the wooden guard into his treehouse hideaway, hooking the back along the side to hold tight until he’s ready to come down.
