A wheel, bike or bicycle is some sort of "straight". It consists out of the cards Ace, 2, 3, 4, 5.

In a second meaning the word "wheel" is often used in lowball poker games. It describes the best possible combination out of low cards.

Original "wheel" described the same combination (Ace, 2, 3, 4, 5) in these lowball games. But later that meaning changed. But also in games like "Deuce to Seven Triple Draw" the best lowest combination (7, 5, 4, 3, 2) is called a wheel.
