Trampe ~ Norwegian Bicycle Lift for Hilly Cities!

Bicycle enthusiasts living in hilly cities can rejoice! Check out the Trampe Bicycle Lift from Norway!
"The inventor of the Bicycle Lift and the owner of the company Design Management AS, Jarle Wanvik, is a true bicycle enthusiast. [...] Inspired by the ski lift technology, he visualized a lift design by which the cyclists could be pushed uphill without having to descend the bicycle. [...] Wanvik joined forces with the experienced mechanical engineer Stein Løvold and the electrical engineer Magnar Wahl. The local ski lift manufacturer, Protek AS, was picked to manufacture and assemble the world’s first bicycle lift."
