The Micro Airstream Bike Camper

Paul Elkins seems to be quite an inventor and a talented Maker.  Here is an ingenious and practical shelter he created that weighs only 45 pounds (20 kg).

profileTiny indeed but I love the low profile.  Wind resistance is everything with human power.

rearobliqueGreat combination of high and low visibility here.  Automobile drivers are the biggest concern for cyclists and it is good to be seen on the road.  When I was a full-time cyclist I was hit several times.

interiorExtremely simple furnishings; lightweight plastic bins, some tiny cabinets, a small stove and speakers.

rearobliquescaleWith the builder modelling for scale, the pod seems rather small.  However, it provides a simple shelter from the weather and a place to keep some gear.  Have a look at the summary HERE and check out his older work on the BLOG.

    I love Paul’s projects. I like that he has actually built two bicycle trailers I’ve only drawn out and made scale models of and his are surprisingly similar, with his improvements.He makes me feel like such a slacker.
