If the only Ashford Traveller you've seen is 30 years old, look again. This double-treadle wheel is sturdy and reliable. The Ashford Traveller is made of hard silver beech, and its ball bearings make for easy treadling. More compact than the Traditional, the Traveller fits easily in a car and is lightweight enough to carry for workshops.
