I think this has been covered up to a point in your other two threads really, if you have the tubes either vertical or too steep your ham won't be able to access them & if you have the tubes at an angle that's easy to climb then it will take up quite a lot of space in your detolf which being fairly narrow anyway is going to make it hard to create a really good set up for him or her.
I think you'd do better to just stick with the detolf which is big enough, if you do go ahead with the additions on top I would only put non essential things up there as your ham may not be able to or not want to use them.

Agree with Cypher. A tube going through the top might end up being an escape route too as difficult to fix securely and safely. It's not impossible It's just the one big open space of the detolf would work better.

The detolf if a great cage on it’s own. No need to add any habitrail.

I too agree with cypher, a detolf is a great size cage. Especially if I remember correctly from your other thread that this cage would be for 2 dwarfs than an add-on can lead to territorial behaviour or fighting. However it does all depend upon what will best suit your hamsters needs as each individual is different.
