The Kaytee Comfort Small Animal Exercise Wheel provides a fun fitness experience for small animals without making loud creaking noises. This wheel features a safe running surface with ridges and a “tail-safe” design. The included heavy duty wire stand lets you use it as a free-standing wheel, or you can attach it to a wire cage with the two-way clip. Choose the 8.5-inch wheel for hamsters, gerbils and hedgehogs. The 12-inch wheel is ideal for chinchillas and rats.

Every Comfort Wheel comes with a heavy duty wire stand and a 2 way attachment clip, so the wheel can be used either free-standing or clipped to a wire cage. For pet hamsters, mice, gerbils or other small animals.
My gerbils love running on this wheel and I'm happy it keeps them active. However the incessant squeaking, rocking & banging I could deal without. The wheel is so lightweight that my guys move it around their tank with ease in a matter of minutes. Then the stand ends up rocking against their wooden hut and causes a banging noise. Add that onto the constant squeaking when they are using the wheel and you have yourself a recipe for a daily headache. I'm investing in a "silent spinner" next. I love Kaytee products but this one is a fail for the humans.
LOUD, LOUD, LOUD!!

We got this as part of a kit for our hedgehog. This wheel is beyond loud. We used to have his cage in the basement, and you could hear it upstairs (split level home). Now it is in one of the bedrooms upstairs and even with the door shut you can still hear it - even over a movie. Insane. Spend the additional $15 and get a silent spinner.
Nice, Large Wheel

Nice, large wheel. Our Syrian hamster enjoys it, and we will be ordering another for his brother. It is a little loud, but our hamsters are downstairs from all the bedrooms, so it doesn't bother us. If it did, I might try adding some olive oil. We did find it a little difficult to get the base off to attach to the wire rungs of the cage, but we are still pleased with our purchase. It is roomy and comfortable for the hamster.
Tips over easily

Bought this for my chinchilla’s playpen. Unfortunately, every time she gets on it, it tips over. Don’t know if it is not weighted correctly. Very disappointed. Back to using the old one that squeaks.
Amazing price and not to loud

It was hard for me to find a wheel under $12 that was this size and had no wire. It was used by my fancy hamster. He really enjoyed it. It did have some noise but didn't get to the point of bothering me.
INCREDIBLY LOUD!! would not recommend

This is a good size for my syrian hamster, but the nose is driving me NUTS!! It’s extremely squeaky and wobbly. Would not recommend buying this. Good price but bad wheel. Better off investing in a more quiet wheel.
Don't buy this

I have nearly every wheel for small rodents on the market, I have 7 rescue hams and they all have separate cages and a wheel and saucer. This wheel is the worst by far. My young Syrian ham still uses it but it's wobbly like a tire missing 3 lug nuts lol. Not to mention super noisey.
It squeaks and wobbles

I got this wheel a few days ago and I’ve been trying to readjust it to try for it not to squeak but not matter what I do it doesn’t stop. So I definitely don’t recommend this item if you care about silence in a room.
Not want I wanted, but what I got

I originally ordered a 10 inch silent spinner. Apparently they do not carry them anymore. I was sent this one at no charge. Not the quietest wheel. I used it until my silent spinner came in. Maybe better for a dwarf hamster, not a larger species.

This wheel is extremely squeaky. Kept me up all night even though this is in a different room. Very wobbly. Also it’s not green. We got a purple one
