Customer Comments:

“I am very, very happy with my Bee! It is everything I expected and hoped for and then some” -
Annie, Denmark

“The more I use my Bee, the more I love it! What I particularly like is that you can also ply from the wheel. It's all there and in a compact form. Even better is that my husband is very happy that the wheel gets folded up and put back in the spare room after use!” -
Linda from Gloucester
