I totally second the Cake Walk Supreme wheel. I bought one for Olive and she loves it (although she refuses to run while I'm watching her - I think she's self-conscious :roll: ). The thing is absolutely silent and all I can hear are her little feets running away. I mounted it to the cage wall and it's awesome. SO easy to clean too - just a swipe with a damp paper towel and it's done.

I too have a CWS, just recently received & back it. It's by far the largest wheel I've seen. Sylvie has a long runners body so the size of the wheel is great for her. The quiet & ease of cleaning is great for me. Win win

I use the GIANT Comfort Wheel. It is the best bang for your buck.

They are $16.99 and really easy to clean, and they come in a variety of colors. I don't own a CWS, but they are suppose to be pretty amazing. If you want to get a wheel now and upgrade later then the Giant sized Comfort Wheel is great!

I wonder, is it good?? is it noisy?... :)
That's a Silent Spinner and they are not safe. The slits and crack down the center where the two halves are joined risk catching small toes and toenails. Both the nut that screws on the back and the one at the front will unwind causing the wheel to fall. The base of the wheel is not large enough and the wheel extends past the base. This can cause the wheel to tip over when the hedgehog enters or exits.

They are not that silent.

silvercat, do you remember how much you paid for shipping, I asked reaper but I guess he's buissy catching up.
Sorry nope, but I think in the end, all in, was 50 - 75. I did have to pay something small when I picked it up too.

I just put in my order for a CWS last week, and my shipping was $12.00 USD for a single wheel...not too shabby considering what I'll be getting in the end! ^_^

((Not sure if this will help you calculate shipping, as APO's count as shipping inside the States.))

whoa I know it's a good wheel but shipping (plus duty, what I assume is the extra you paid) isn't really cheap, I kinda new it would be since it's from the states. I think I'm gonna go with the confort wheel, price-wise for now for now!

Wow! Have the shipping costs for the CWS wheel gone down???

When I checked it was 25 USD to Canada! It was the only thing that stopped me from ordering at the time...

Glad that it's affordable to get to your neck of the woods :D :D :D

I'll have to inquire again for my area!

I'm not sure what the shipping might be for other areas, I actually live in Germany, but we have and APO (Army Post Office?) box that has a US zip code and "counts" as technically being inside the continental US. So all my mail gets routed to New York, and then gets on a plane and comes to Europe. ^_^

Long story short: My price quote was for domestic postage, might be more to other places.

I bought a Flying Saucer for 25 dollars. Its quiet, and super easy to rinse off. The wheel detaches from the base without any tools or fancy clips and is easily rinsed off. It took my little guy a bit to warm up to and finally start using the Flying Saucer, but now he runs on it every night.

I have the Large 12" FS for Julius, who is a smaller hedgehog. A touch smaller than a full grown guinea pig.

Gaaaaah! I just looked at the CWS... If I were to buy something like that, I'd go to Home Depot and the restaurant supply store and build one for 1/4 of the money... But I'm a broke college kid. I had the "Comfort Wheel" and let me tell you, it was LOUD! But it worked. I'm thinking about going the Flying Saucer route with Mika, but now I'm more thinking of building one so I can make it exactly how I want it.

Just my 2c.
