Default Silent Runners sold out noooo!

I've heard amazing reviews from this wheel and went to buy it for my other Syrian as their current one is too noisy. I went to look for it on the Sugar Glider Shop and it's sold out. Noooooo! Is there anywhere else I can get this wheel. I found it on some American websites and shipping is either way too much or I am unable to see if they ship to the UK

I've decided to go with the Wobust wheel on Rodipet. Hope this is okay. Anyone else devastated about the silent runners?

(I saw one on eBay but it was like 40 and it's glow in the dark and am unsure if that's okay for hammies)

The glow in the dark one is new. There is an ebay seller (where I got mine when the sugar glider shop were out of stuck). Called Barum Bazaar. They are also a sugarglider shop. They did charge more but the cost worked out exactly the same as it included postage. Whereas the sugarglider shop add postage to the cost advertised.

I wouldn't get the Wobust wheel. I had it before the Silent Runner - it is really huge. I also wasn't happy with the stand for safety reasons - unless you can hang the wheel upside down in a cage eg where the stand is away from floor level. The gap between the wheel and stand is bigger on the wobust wheel than the other wodent wheels. Our hamster got his leg stuck. Which made him try to run away and the more he tried to run the more stuck he got. Luckily I saw and freed him and he wasn't injured.

Do you need the wheel urgently? If not I'm sure the sugarglider shop will have stock again soon. Just looked on ebay and it's Barum Bazaar that are selling the glow in the dark one. Looks like that's the only version they are selling at the moment, but you could maybe message them and ask if they still have the standard one.

The Silent Runner was a massive improvement over the Wobust wheel - it spins a lot better and has a really safe, sturdy stand.

I do need the wheel urgently as hers recently broke and I'm not surprised as it was a second hand one.

At the moment she has a DIY wheel but I'm looking for a more permanent one.

The glow in the dark wheel is not bad to me I'm just wondering if it will disrupt the hamster mentally and/or physically like how artificial light when they're awake can cause depression issues if on for long lengths of their awake time.

Try emailing them to ask - I did about the 9” being out of stock and they put it back in within a couple days.

Nightmare. I had to get a wheel quick when one broke once and in that few days our hammy went quite bonkers. My replacement wheel was going to take too long and the quickest thing I could get next day was a 12" flying saucer or a trixie wheel. Sent for both and wasn't keen on the Trixie wheel so sent it back. The 12" flying saucer was a stop gap until the new main wheel arrived. It arrived broken. So it was good to have the flying saucer until I could get the right wheel sorted for the long term - and then used the saucer for out of cage time.

So if you really want the silent runner - the standard one, that might be an option - get a 12" flying saucer as a stop gap.

This is the one I have.

I am not sure about the glow in the dark one. I think the idea is it's for owners - whether it would bother a hamster or not, I'm not sure - they hardly needhelp finding their wheel in the dark!

I found an American shop that sells them called Otto Environmental. The standard 12" are $20 which translates to around 15 however, I can't find any info on shipping costs to the UK.

I've emailed the sugar glider shop and hope to hear a reply soon!
