I have not had any problem with the 1/2" plastic hardware cloth track, my next wheel will have the 1/4" coated wire and then I'll decide what I like better for my 4th wheel.

My crew have fallen in love with these wheels, they hop, jump and hang on the outside. They are having a blast!

Was there ever information on whether trim trax will fit on the new wheel and if not, if there will be a nail trimmer of some sort coming out for it eventually?

I will try to answer for you - The Trimtrax should fit as long as you use the plastic mesh option. I think the holes on the wire mesh may be too small for the hardware on the Trimtrax, but you could always get smaller hardware...

How are they liking the coated wire!? I'm currious how that one works because I think that'll be what I get for my hefty little girls.


they love it. i got it with the bouncy option for the babies, 3 & 7 months and they are on it all the time!

roflmao I always forget I have an accent because people have finally stopped telling me I have one. When I moved up to Ohio 2 years ago, everyone was all over it. I'm just a Texan. I wouldn't change it if I could. grin

I had to go back and play the video again to hear the accent and I just can't hear one, Amanda sounds just like everyone else here in Virginia, so maybe we have accents and don't know it..........................

That's true. I guess it depends on what part of the country you're living in. Over here, it's an accent, but if I were in Virginia, I'd probably have the accent. Either way, it still sounds pretty cool to me!

Question for you all that have the cruiser wheel.

Mine was squeeking quite a bit last night and wondered if anyone else has experienced this.

I have cleaned it once. Sprayed it with cleaner in the bathtub, wiped it down and then rinsed and let air dry.

Hmm, mine doesn't squeak, but I haven't done a thourough washing yet. I did talk to Bourbon at length about this though because when she showed me the prototype, I asked her if she could make it dishwasher safe, because I'm the type that uses machines for everything. When she sent me my wheel, she called me & said that the bearing was sealed & that I could, in fact, put it in the dishwasher. I would call her and ask where the squeeking could be coming from. I spoke to her last night & she did just change the bearing assembly so that it sits farther down in the well, but that was for different reasons. Really the best way to find out is to speak with her personally thumb

is it a grinding or a squeeking noise? I had a grinding noise, but I took the metal thing off the back, unscrewed it one little notch and it quit. smile I also greased it up REALLY good while I was in there with veg oil. thumb

it's kind of a squeeking/grinding noise. I will have to take it out when I get home from work and look at the back of it.

Ok, it is probably tightened too far - if you take out the metal plug on the back of the bearing assembly, there is a nut. Hopefully you got one of the ones after they started using the lock nuts. If you didn't, this may be a good opportunity to replace your regular nut with a lock nut. Use a 1/2 inch socket & just back the nut off a hair (careful not to loosen it too much). Test spin the wheel before you put your plug back in.

My last box finally made it and my new CC with the wire track is here. I think it looks great but I got the track too wide and can't get it in my cage??? Will have hubby take it apart to get it in.
Here are some pics of the new wheel.

I think the wire looks better than the plastic does and seems sturdier as well. I am worried about my guys chewing the coating off, they like to chew up everything. We will see how it stands up to my crew.

It all depends on how tall and wide your cage door is. The track is in the groove VERY tightly, so it will be really hard to take it apart and put it back together inside the cage.

My first CC has a 7 inch wide track and with the back bearing assembly I didn't think I could get it thru my 12in door. But with some tipping and pushing it did go thru. Once I got it in the first time, I had no problem moving it to different cages.

If your door opens up and down, take one side off the hooks, so that the door opens side to side, like a house door. Then make sure the base goes in first, then push the wheel thru as far as it will go, then with some figgling and pushing on the front open part of the wheel, it will pop right thru.

I did get my other 9 with 6 inch tracks, so they go in easier.

I also tie a strip of fleece around the back of the stand onto the side of the cage and then use a baby link to hook the bottom of the stand to the bottom grate of the wheel

There is a rubber gasket holding the track in place which can easily be removed by using a flathead screwdriver to raise it up in one spot, then just carefully pulling the rest of the gasket off. The front can then be removed, which may be just enough room to fit the wheel through the door. I used one of those roller tools for screen door repair to put it back in the groove. This may, or may not be easier than taking the cage apart... just another option! Bourbon walked me through this a while ago because I didn't want to risk ruining my wheel.

thanks for the fleece idea to anchor the wheel to the cage - I like that better than daisy-chaining a few zip ties, trimming and sanding them down each time I clean the wheel.

Is TGI ever coming back up? I'd really like to price out these wheels and more than likely order one, but ever since I heard about them the site has been "Under Construction".. if anyone involved with them has time you can send me a message, or just reply here, I am now watching this thread.

As far as I know right now you will need to send a PM to Bourbon to place your order.
TGI is no longer handling the Cruiser Wheel.

tbull, i would say you are feeding your kids really well.
the bigger mess they make, in my opinion, the more they are eating, & like what they are eating!!!!!!!!
i, too, want to get one of these wheels from bourbon.
i owe her so much, she was one of many that helped me in keeping my little cosmos alive.
oh!, & by the way, everyone, he is @ 86 this a.m.!!!!!!!!
it took almost 2 months to to get him back up there, after getting down to 69 when he was on his meds, & so sick.
you should see him now, he is much bigger than on my avatar.
oh i just love em, & you guys too!!!!!
