This is a step by step guide plan for a spinning wheel made from bike parts designed and constructed by the instructor Opalyn Rose during the Permaculture Technology Jamboree 2022 at Wheaton Labs and part of the Low Tech Laboratory Movie.

I think this is the spinning wheel they built - or maybe a prototype?

Looks like a walking wheel. I lived in Peru forty years ago and locals were starting to make and sell spinning wheels that were treadle operated from bicycle wheels. I would like to see a full treadle wheel made like this and I regret that I could not purchase one and bring it back with me.

I'm with Susan. I bought the last kickstarter bundle because I thought these plans were for a full spinning wheel, not a great wheel. I'm a little disappointed there aren't petals involved.

Perhaps I can create one? Anyone done that?
