The motto here is "function over form." While Babe Spinning Wheels are indeed made of plumbing pipe, they all work very well. The idea is that you can enter the world of spinning for almost nothing; if you like the fun, then moving up to a more traditional wheel may be in your future.

Another interesting fact: these products are produced with the help of adults with disabilities in a setting that allows them to achieve their maximum potential.

We sell some Babe Wheels with FREE SHIPPING.  See below.
