I currently have the Silent Runner wheel from Exotic Nutrition. The girls love it but I think I want to get a different wheel after reading that it detatched and killed someone's glider. I've been looking at the Raptor mostly. I'm being ADHD about the color choice. Green with black back or blue with black back. Indecisive people problems sigh. Would anyone recommend the Raptor over the Stealth? Also, anyone have pics of their wheels? Mine will be attached to the cage.

I have a raptor. Green with black back.

Love it and the green for me keeps it with a nature scene.

I have had only Fast Track wheels from SpinZone Global I have the Apollo (had two, but gave one to someone) in the regular size and one travel "voyager" . I first ordered an all green one (one I gave away) and then got one with a green/black that came with my Ollie boy. I have since changed the front to red, so now I have red/black, but I have the green still so I can change back if I want to.

She also makes cozy for them, so they can match cage sets/colors.

I love these wheels! For so many reasons. There is also the Titan wheel, which is most likely an upgrade, and a treadmill, which I may try (treadmill) one day.

Almost forgot pic, lol. This is current set up of wheels. I had the cage mount on the side but moved it to back. The travel size wheel is on the floor stand, but sometimes I swap wheel from one mount to the other, or just move the the floor stand to another location in the cage, other floor placement or even on a shelf, which I also may relocate from time to time.

We do have one. The girls use it a lot. While we are Rving, we use it for play outside the cage. At home, they get to use it more.

It's also great for tent time. Easy to clean. I wash cover and put it back on to dry. I can't get over how fast they can get it to go!

We did have a wheel (I made the wheel per tsuggie instructions online and youtube, its sturdy and works great) mounted in one of our cages as well as a treadmill (also made from tsuggie instructions) on the bottom. That worked out great for the two I had in the cage, both could be running without sharing and it was an extra way to exercise or play.

As of right now we had to separate the two due to Falcore aka Bighead overgrooming Smores where she had a grooming/mating wound from last fall and balding the area and scratching it again. So we have the treadmill with her and the wheel with him. I need to make another wheel, but hopefully in 2 more weeks they'll be back together. Fingers crossed.
