Hacking the versatile Frosta stool is nothing new on Apartment Therapy. We've done it as a side table and as a different rendition of the stool, but this next hack from designers Andreas Bhend and Samuel Bernier is quite possibly the ultimate IKEA hack: the Draisienne bicycle.

The duo's ingenuity used a standard Frosta kit and custom 3D-printed parts from le FabShop, a Paris start-up where Samuel works. Check out their project in the video below:

If you'd like to try your hand at building this bicycle, they've uploaded everything you need to know: a PDF with full instructions and the 3D printing files at Makerbot Thingiverse. If you don't have access to a 3D printer, you can order the parts directly from le FabShop.

Happy hacking!
