"I have been spinning on Ashford wheels for 28 years--from my first day of spinning--and have a Traveller and a Traditional wheel. And in all those years I have still never seen any wheel as graceful as your original Traditional design, elegant and functional and solid. It is a pleasure to spin on it".
