The Schacht Sidekick is now available. This is the brand new portable wheel from Schacht that is turning heads. I got a chance to spin on it at TNNA and it is all that it's cracked up to be. You can tell the design was well thought through and spins really smoothly. All of the flyer mechanisms, whorls, and bobbins will interchange with other Schacht wheels which is really cool. They have a Bulky Flyer for this wheel the requires the front maiden to be changed. Schacht thought of everything on this one, spins great, reasonably priced with all the whorls, stability and quality you expect from a Schacht Wheel.
