Default Wire cage add on to Rotastak?

For my Syrian Pumba, i have a big Rotastak cage, which is made up of 3 sets of cages (all the pink ones from rotastak) i attached them all, but only one small part of it has wire/bars and he hasnt really got an oppertunity to climb apart from going up the tubes, i was wondering is there any sort of cheap cages that would add onto my Rotastak collection for him to swing from the bars and be happier lol. Im looking like an average square barred cage, with maybe a hole on top to attach tubes.
Please send pics/links/ideas etc
thank you

Hamsters don't need to climb bars, in fact they aren't good at height perception so often fall and hurt themselves.. I think running space is more important, and would make him a happy pumba
I'd personally attach a bin cage to your current set up, and have that for running around, it stops you having to mess around with cutting wire bars, as I don't think there are wire cage adapters for rotostak..
Lots of people add a bin cage onto a rotostak so their hamster has room to run, and tunnels.

(btw a bin is just a big plastic storage box, you can get them from most hardware stores)

If you're really wanting a wire barred cage, there are loads of unbranded and branded ones, I'd look on ebay as I'm always seeing them come up on there.. you can usually get them very cheap (usually pick up only)

a bin cage would be a good idea for a add on or even better you could just make your hammie a bin cage and forget about the rotastak? sorry i really dont like them cages!

Attaching a wire cage to rotastak could be quite tricky, as i don't know of any tube adaptors that fit to rotastak tubes.
Like said a bin cage would be easier, you could put mesh or bars 9either bird cage panels or from an old wire cage) on for him to climb, or even a variety of climbing toys

thanks for the ideas everyone, but for now ive found an extra cage that i had for previous hamsters. i totally forgot about it! it was a dwarf hamster cage with holes for tubing, i took everything out of it (the smaller dwarf things) so it was completely empty. it took a while but i managed to add it on there is way more floor space and part of the top is wire so Pumba is happy ive put in a few toys etc for him i will take a pic later and post Pumba's home
