Schacht Ladybug Review by Janet
I've owned this wheel since 2012. It was my very first wheel. I've bought and sold other wheels since getting this one. And if anyone ever told me I could only keep one wheel, this would be it. It spins reliably, is well made, and American made. It has hand-holds that allows you to carry it. But I wouldn't want to carry it very far with all that weight in front of me as it hurts my bad back. For distances I purchased a luggage cart that has little wings that fold out. It fits great, and I just use bungy cords to strap it in. I mainly spin in scotch tension but I've used it in double drive and it works well. But personally I thought the spin was smoother in double drive on the Schacht Matchless. That's just my personal opinion. It's a little workhouse of a wheel, looks great, and I love the little ladybug the company places on each wheel. (Posted on 1/13/2017)
I had one before, sold it, kicking myself, getting anothetry Review by Tori Chase Citter, Fiber, and Fur
This is advertised as an " entry level" wheel. I've had every brand, every style, even a "matchless".
( try to pry it from my dead fingers). The ladybug is my choice for a quick sit down and accomplish something. (Posted on 9/23/2016)
