There’s a fellow in my neighborhood who has had a mega-deluxe gear-reduction house-bike for several years now. The sleeping cabin is 3-4 times the size of the one in the original post. He fabricated the whole thing, from the frame up and has lived in it for at least a few years (I’ve seen him around my neighborhood 2-3 years, he parks on the street often and nobody bothers him). He pedals sitting upright covered by a light-weight canopy, the cabin is insulated with 1-2" special styrofoam and covered in a reflective silver mylar coating to deflect heat, and has windows that slide open. Come to think of it, it never actually occurred to me how amazing it is until describing it just now. This is in Eugene Oregon (Whiteaker neighborhood) by the way, and we have a huge skate-park in the neighborhood that attracts a lot of teenagers and shelters a lot of vagrant addicts, and as far as I’ve seen and heard, there has been little to no harassment of the houseless from the kids. This isn’t a particularly large city, but the area is about as true outskirts-metro as it gets.
Oh, haha. It’s this guy:
Just saw the link in a prior post.
