Yes it will. Although I have the wood trixie wheel upside down in mine to save a bit of floorspace. Any 28cm wheel will fit standing on its stand, but because the base curves in, they tend to have to take up quite a bit of room..

With the wood 28cm trixie one I removed the screws in the base and the base (not easy - took a saw). The screw holes are still there in the upright stand. I then used to large flat washers and the existing screws and screwed through the top of the bars into the wheel upright stand with the existing holes. That way the wheel is securely upside down and can be set a bit further back.

No. The internal height of the cage is about 36cm but the way the floor is a 28cm wheel is only about 4 to 5cm off the roof height. I did have a 12" Wobust wheel in once - which did fit but no room for substrate under it and very little space above it. So the maximum sized wheel really is 30cm. But means no room for substrate. 28 cm fits fine with a bit of substrate underneath.

I used the cage to my syrian but needed to use alaska cage as I dont had any wheel who were 28 cm. But I have to buy more toys or think if I should buy a smaller wheel.

Is it the silent runner 12" that won't fit in the HH? That should fit if screwed to the bars and taken off the stand. I'ts only 33cm tall on the stand. Of the stand it's only 30 cm tall . You'd need the bar fixing kit.

No, its a wood wheel from zooplus After I did give him the alaska cage he have started to be a little nervous again. When he had the hamster heaven cage, it seemed like he felt more safe.

They have
He were more active in hamster heaven then the alaska, so maybe I just should buy a 28 cm wheel, and find out off it.
