Does anyone have any experience with stool or other sort of backless chair? I remember seeing a chair a while back that looked neat, a stool with a flexible seatpost, but I can't at all remember what it was.

Were you referring to this posted on the last page?

What's the heaviest-weight/duty gas cylinder and legs available (individually, not by pallet or something)? At this point I am inclined to build myself something out of a luxury car seat. I work in the car industry so this is not going to be "too weird" (it qualifies as "employee enthusiasm"), but the lightest decent seat will still be probably 80 lbs.

Unlike the chair industry, I can test the hell out of car seats.

Please make sure to post the build and results.

That is a lot to spend on a chair. It looks like it would be comfy though.

They are not bad, but are pretty outdated as they have been around for a long time now.

I'm pretty sure a gold toilet seat isn't comfortable, but it's so expensive it MUST be worth it!

Does anyone in here have either of these chairs? https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B...d=ATVPDKIKX0DER https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B...d=ATVPDKIKX0DER

Looking to get a new chair because the one that I have is basically just me sitting on a piece of wood that reclines.

How many hours a day/days a week are you going to be spending in said chair? Something like that most likely isn't going to put up with the abuse of sitting in it 40+ hours a week.

I don't think I would ever use a headrest on a desk chair, I also don't game if that makes a difference.

I just marathoned through season 2 of Twin Peaks and a headrest would've made a world of difference.

Ah yeah, I really don't watch tv/movies at my desk either. On a side note, just started S01 of Twin Peaks.

Hm, really? Well, Compared to the chairs I've been borrowing, it seems dramatically more ergonomic, has actual armrests, and can move without me picking it up. I've kind of given up looking for a chair I can recline in for any realistic price anyway, and the design seems so simple as to be hard to break. These things probably last forever right?

For example, I've been alternating between my wobbly old cheap office chair which feels like its on the verge of breaking, a hardwood dining room chair, and an old foldable chair that is even smaller than this and wiggles around when I shift. Even if this isn't that amazing, it is still better than what I've got, and probably won't break just from normal use.

Unless there are better chairs for $200 or less, I figure if I'm in this price range something simple and durable is for the best, so maybe one day I can save up to buy an actually good chair.

Edit: And to be honest having sat in these types of chairs for much of my time in college, they are way more comfortable that a lot of chairs used in waiting areas.

Do I even want to ask why you are wanting to recline in a desk chair?

How many hours/day are you going to be sitting in this thing?

Dunno about how good the ergonomics are but the seven year warranty is better than I expected unless there's some fine print involved.

At that price, I doubt many bother with the warranty unless something hilarious (like it literally collapses) happens.

I'm not proud to admit it, but I have been using one of these for a year or two and have had zero issues.

I was going to splurge if it sucked or fell apart, but it still looks and feels brand new.

The 48" wide desks have plenty of space for a single monitor and tower but are cramped with two. If I order another desk I will probably order something wider. Maybe in the 60 inch range.

Swing by the SFF thread, they can assist you in freeing up more of that desk space.

You sure the grease you used hasn't just gotten good and worked in there? I would assume that type of grease would be perfect for this use case.

I quickly started to hate the Staples Hykken I bought from Craigslist for $80. Itís comfortable only if youíre in media consumption mode, i.e. your back fully against the back of the chair and using the headrest. Anything else and the seat area is just too small. Ugh, maybe I can sell it for $60.

Are you of larger stature? I have been using this thing for 40 hours a week and am still impressed with it. Had it for over a year now.

I feel like a broken record, but I am going on 2 years with this thing. 40-50 hours a week. Still feels brand new and great.

Large casters are expensive but a good option if you're using your chair on carpet.

You can get the cool rollerblade casters on Amazon for like 30.

I recently snagged a bamboo floor mat from Costco for like $40. Have not tested it out yet.

I'll also recommend the Staples Hyken. It is currently on sale for $150 (Black or Gray) shipped with coupon code 53644 .

I have been using one for about 40 hours a week for a few years now. Still feels great.
