So Jealous: A Bicycle Powered Tree House Elevator

bicycle-treehouse-elevator.jpg

Raise your hand if you want to live in a tree house. Cool, everybody -- even the mole people. No, ESPECIALLY the mole people. "It's just so dark and cold underground." Haha, SHUT UP AND KEEP DIGGING. This is a 30-foot bicycle powered tree house elevator. You just hop on and peddle yourself to the top. You can also use the bike to lower yourself back down to the ground but I think we can all agree a zipline would be way f***ing cooler. *nailing 'NO GURLZ ALOUD' sign to tree trunk* Sorry ladies, it's not that I don't want you visiting, it's just that I only had room to install a men's bathroom. "That's a pickle jar." Actually it was artichokes from Costco but you get the picture.

Hit the jump for a video of the elevator in action.

Thanks to E V I L A R E S, who's so evil whenever he rides an elevator with other people he jumps up and down as hard as he can yelling I HOPE IT F***ING PLUMMETS.

    I wonder if he was using the hand brake or line friction for going down. Either way, the rig is at some risk for catastrophic failure.

  • I'm pretty sure that's the cat from the opening.

  • DeksamTorrac

    Cats don't walk heavy like that, and if so, that cat got real big!

  • You're right; I paid special attention to the tail this time.

  • Matthew Anderson

    Pretty sure, uhhh no.

  • ODwanKenObi

    Holy sh*t.

  • kristopher

    This is the politically correct way of keeping fatties out of the tree house.

  • Richelle Howes

    Dude seems pretty proud of himself. I can ride my bike with no handlebars, no handlebars.

  • Joel Lamm

    good thing that wasn't creepy the way he stared at the camera when he got to the top...
