Default Lightweight cage?

I'm looking for a good cage appropriately sized for a robo. It has to be lightweight so I can move and clean it easily, as I have some health issues. I had a DIY bin cage before that I liked, but I gave it away and don't really want to make another. I prefer the look of a tank or bin cage to a barred cage, but don't know if there's anything similar that's lightweight. Suggestions?

I don't know how heavy they are, but Niteangel makes great quality cages on wheels so they can be moved around.

I'm not sure about lightweight, as all the stuff in the cages can make even a light one heavy, but what about a front-opening cage that doesn't need to be moved to clean it? There's the Nightangel cage, as meganm suggested, but Bucatstate also does a cage that's, erm, 'inspired' by the Nightangel stacker cages for around 30% less, plus it's has a bigger option (linked). These are heavy cages by themselves, though, being metal.

Otherwise, the only thing I can really think of is the ZooZone2, which is a 'tank' plastic cage that opens from the top. The ZZ2 has very large bars at the top, but I've been using mine for years with my robos and have never had an escape (because it's too high; would probably need to mesh it if I added levels). There's a similar style that has smaller bars, but I can't remember the name/brand.
