Comments about Lightweight at 13 pounds. Sidekick Spinning Wheel:
I bought this wheel from a different store, but it highly recommend it to anyone making the transition to wheel spinning. It is a smooth wheel to spin with. It also has the added benefit of folding up for travel. My wheel has been all over the country with me and has never taken more than 5 minutes to assemble or fold up. Everything folds inside of the wheel except some of the small accessories you will need for spinning, otherwise you don't take anything off of it except the flyer and bobbin for travel.
The customer service at schacht is amazing as well. They are quick to respond and very helpful. When I needed a new scotch tensioner they pointed me in the direction of my closest in state dealer as well as a list of online dealers. If I could give them more stars I would!
