After Pebbles's old comfort wheel broke and I got a new one, it's been much louder. It's not squeaky, it's more that it thumps and thuds when she runs like the wheel is loose on the axel. It keeps me up at night and it keeps people sleeping down the hall up, too. I don't have enough saved up for a carolina storm wheel but as soon as I do I'm definitely switching. In the meantime, what are some solutions to this? One thing I've done- while very questionable- was to wrap electrical tape around the axel. It cut the noise down to a much more manageable level but the friction from the wheel pulled the tape off, and I don't want to chance Pebbles eating it or it getting stuck to her. Maybe some other, safer, and more permanent ways to bulk up the axel? I'm open to just about anything at this point.
