The Elizabeth 2 is Ashford's "fairy tale" wheel. It has the traditional fairy tale look, and it has a large wheel that means less treadling and less effort, as the wheel size and the ball bearings in the hub mean that the wheel just keeps turning. In keeping with the traditional look, the Elizabeth has Ashford's original-style flyer with stationary hooks. This double drive wheel quickly converts to Scotch tension and comes either finished or unfinished.
The Elizabeth's specifications:
- Wheel diameter: 24"
- Orifice size: 3/8"
- Ratios: 8.5, 11, 15:1 (10.5., 13.5, 18:1 Limited Edition)

The wheel comes unassembled.
