Question Bar spacing

I'm from the US and trying to find an new cage to upgrade my hamster to. Wondering if 0.87 in (2.2 cm) bar spacing is too large for a Syrian?

I'm not entirely sure but I think that would be a bit too big.
Have you looked at the Goran, it is expensive but a good cage for a syrian.

Hmm, I don't think it's best to use that. There's always the Marchioro Cages such as what Cypher suggested, and the upcoming Crittertrail Super Habitat and a cheaper variant is the Prevue Pet Products cage.

Yes that bar spacing is too big. Max is 1cm (or half inch) for a Syrian. There are only two hamster cages big enough that I know of in the US. The Marchioro Goran that Cypher mentioned (usually available from Pet Mountain for just over £$100.) Or the Lixit Mickey 2XL from Amazon which costs more - $130 to $150. Of the two the Goran 82 is the best size for a Syrian. Alternatively a 40 gallon breeder tank or diy cage or bin cage are options.
