Post Alexander small pet cage?

Hey im soon going to upgrade my hamsters 2 level imac fantasy (as i want her to have the biggest cage she can)
And im currently stuck.. :/ The only 2 ideal cages ive found are the alexander (which i am leaning towards) or the 100cm mamble but im a bit concerned about the height
Anyone have any store bought cages that are bigger than the alexander or any point of views over the alexander would be great
(My hammy is a syrian and i will be upgrading her wheel also to a 11" wodent wheel or trixie wheel)

I have the 80cm Mamble and it's around the same size as the Alaska,The Alexander is the biggest as far as I know of that type of cage. Is the 100cm Mamble higher than the 80cm?

Im pretty sure the 100cm mamble is slightly taller than the 80cm,
Not 100% sure though

Looked at some rat cages but most are either too tall or way too expensive :/
And im not too keen on the idea of meshing a whole cage because id be too worried about my hammy escaping or getting hurt

Personally, I would choose the Alexander. I've seen the Mamble in real life and a friend of mine has it too. She is also worrying about her hamster falling from the top. I know you can add hammocks in but they can be expensive. The Alexander already comes with the shelves so all you'll need to do if plati-kote or paint them with pet safe pet to stop urine soaking in

I think the alexander would be the best choice but still i plan on using a hammock just incase :P Also hopefully i wont need to plastikote cus my hammy is potty trained as i aslo get paranoid over paint fumes even when they do say they are safe for children
Thanks all

It always makes life easier when they're potty trained
