I have a lot of gerbils and I needed to find away to keep them all fit and health so I brought a standard plastic wheel for each of the tanks. the four wheels I brought soon become nothing more then a chew toy for them and so I looked for other things to keep the happy but they become a little round lol. Then I saw this mesh wheel and thought why not it don't cost the earth and maybe they will like the open view and enter at both sides. So I brought just one 17" wheel and put it in the tank with the fatty's and within a week the boys where running like crazy on this wheel. They have lost weight and looking more happy, so I have gone a brought more of the same wheel for the other cages and everyone wheel is being used.
Just one thing about the wheel is that is does make a little noise but if you rub a little sunflower oil on the joints it will be noise free for around a week.
Hope this review helped! if you are buying for a gerbil I would not go smaller then a 17" wheel.

I brought a 3 storey hamster cage with a wheel already attached to the side of the cage. I thought It was great but my Sybil stopped being happy and started chewing the bars. She couldn't get the wheels to work and was depressed, So I purchased this one instead and brought a bigger cage.Result, one bloody estate hamster. End of!

We had to buy this wheel for our very silly hamster George. He use to run on top of the wheel and in turn took most of the fur off his back side and legs. We had to do something because he did look very scruffy and unloved. So we've bought him this wheel as he has no option but to run inside it. It was quite squeaky but nothing a little butter didn't fix. A great buy for us. Now we just need to wait and see if George grows his fur back.
It's perfect at 17 cm aswell he doen't look uncomfortable when he runs as the small wheels tend to make them look cramped. Highly recommended.

Best thing I ever bought for my rodents especially as they go potty running in it day and night. Keeps them fit and occupied. This "close-meshed thread" I feel is far better than those flimsy plastic wheels out there that would just get chewed up eventually. Solid metallic ones exist but are difficult to get hold of and on the pricey side. These are good value and I have bought many for my current "zoo". Beware however: this size 17 cm is the smaller one available, suitable for hamsters and gerbils. 17 cm refers to the diameter of the wheel itself but doesn't take into account the frame which makes the overall dimensions 22 x 20 cm although this probably would fit most wire hamster/gerb cages. Can squeak which others here recommend greasing with oil/butter to curb - maybe I'll try it but I admit I like hearing the noise faintly in the background knowing my girls and boys are up and active.
Degus would also use this (delightedly) but I feel this size is too small for them - the angle is bad for their spines - they need the next size up which is the 22 cm one (inclusive of frame 28 x 23cm). There is also a next size up which is suitable for the chinchilla. Despite the metallic tread my degus do not seem to suffer from bumblefoot (gerbs do not suffer from that anyway). They need a bit of grip - once I considered putting a strip of flexible stick-on vinyl floor tiles around the inner perimeter but not sure if they would lose some grip and anyway again it would be chewed up. Sometimes the wheel falls off the frame (easy enough to put back, pinching the frame tighter) but the degus are so keen they hop on and are trying to run on it before you put the spoke back in!

The hamster loves this and spends a huge amount of time on it getting valuable exercise and enrichment. It does squeak intermittently so I put some olive oil (presuming safer than a chemical oil) on the joints which works a treat. It gives me pleasure seeing a happy hamster!

My hamster's cage came with a fairly decent plastic wheel, so it was surprising that my very energetic hamster never used it! I tried to entice him to get on it for months, as he looked restless, but it didn't seem to appeal, so I thought he maybe wasn't a wheel kind of hamster.

Enter the Trixie wheel. It took my hamster only a few seconds to get it figured out, and he uses it for a couple of hours everyday, which has resulted in a considerably happier hamster!

Other reviews are correct in saying the wheel is squeaky, but any kind of lubricant will solve that immediately, to the point where you can barely hear it.

Very good hamster wheel, I bought it for my Syrian hamster after she was too big for her old plastic wheel that came with her cage. It took her a while to start using it, maybe cos it was harder to run in it? But she loves it now. It's much quieter and only squeaks sometimes, which I'm sure could be sorted with some lubricant, but we're not bothered. And it's plenty of room for the hamster, so she doesn't have to be bent in half trying to run in her wheel!

I bought this for my degu's as they will destroy anything plastic.
Sadly the wheel detaches from the frame far too easily and I am having to put it back together on a daily basis.
It is also a bit too small for a degu.
