I spent very little time looking, but I came across these which don't seem to have such a large distance between the shaft and wheel.
I initially purchased an Areon chair, but my partner who has a bad back and a hip replacement fell in love with it and I gave it up. Then I bought this, which has been just fine. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07PKJDMDS/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apap_vW2haVJlUrMkm
Lens says it's an Eurotech Fuzion / Wayfair Argonaut / some other variant of the same licensed design.
The height adjustment is the lever on the 4th picture.
The good news is that since it's a generic chair, it probably uses generic parts so you can get a replacement gas lift off Amazon or a local repair shop. No special tools needed, just a rubber mallet (or a hammer with a piece of wood as padding) and a (pipe) wrench.
There is a chance that the lever itself is broken, that's a bit more tricky.
Licorice is the color. I just ordered this exact config from amazon- simply for the fact that I was looking for relief and could have this delivered in two days:
If I had more time / less pain I probably would have gone with the leather/brushed-metal frame, but like I said I was that happy to have the chair sooner.
Stealtho brand is my recommendation:
STEALTHO Patented Replacement Office Chair Caster Wheels Set of 5 - Protect Your Floor - Quiet Rolling Over Cables - No More Chair Mat Needed - with Brakes - Blue Polyurethane - Standard Stem 7/16 https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07KSDKZPD/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_glt_fabc_46541FEZESE2GQKTVF37
These have been great so far after 3 months of daily use. No noise that I can recall and no complaints from me either.

I have a leap v2 at my work desk. I’ll take a look.
Here’s a comfy solution I recommend:
Aloudy Ergonomic Memory Foam... https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01M8F9IYC?ref=ppx_pop_mob_ap_share
Clatina Mellet is a decent leap impersonator. Of course long term durability may not be as good but has been great for me since 1/2021 and mostly comparable to the leap v2 at work: $230 with headrest on Amazon. Also Walmart and eBay I think
link to info dump comment on Clatina Mellet
Edit: this Amazon link is cheaper for some reason:
CLATINA Ergonomic High Swivel Executive Chair with Adjustable Height Head 3D Arm Rest Lumbar Support and Upholstered Back for Home Office Gray https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07DVLWZSK/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_glt_fabc_71SM47J4A2XMV1YRM2QJ
np. Also - I just got this https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B08GST514D/ that seems to be helping.... not that you should need an extra pad for a $1000 desk chair but still.
Most office chair wheels use a standard 7/16 in diameter 7/8 in long grip ring. Try pulling your wheel off the chair. If it looks like a rod of metal with a small ring near the top, nearly every office wheel you see on amazon will fit. You can even measure the width with a ruler to make sure if you want.
For carpet hard double wheels are preferred. Something like this https://www.amazon.com/CLATINA-Replacement-Protecting-Universal-Standard/dp/B07X4BYYYD/ref=sr_1_74?dchild=1&keywords=office+wheel&qid=1615581139&sr=8-74
I do not like single wheels like the normal Rollerblade wheels on carpet. Moving the chair back and forth is difficult because they pivot on one point and for my carpet specifically, can catch the carpet when turning. There are double casters with plastic wheels using soft covers or even a double rubber wheel like this one https://www.amazon.com/casters-Bearing-Replacement-Computer-Protection/dp/B08DY1XT77/ref=sr_1_29?dchild=1&keywords=office+wheel&qid=1615581563&sr=8-29
If you want soft wheels that can be used on hard flooring then use whatever you feel like. For me double casters is a must.
I second the Clatina Mellet. Does a good value impression of a steelcase leap.
here is another comment of mine with an info dump of Clatina info
Also big fan of these arm rest covers
Oh, one of these for goofing around on the phone while eating dinner haha
Oh and it’s not a footrest but that’s funny a custom one imagine! it’s an Amazon thing to hide cords and I just half heartedly rigged it up. This doohickey
2 Pack Cable Management Box -Space Saving Wooden Style Cord Organizer Box Hide Power Strip for TV Computer Big and Small Surge Protector for Home and Office (Black) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B08923LXSF/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_fab_3M7FFbTVZ5Y46
>I'm thinking about placing some sort of pipe on the bottom of the chair that blocks it from sinking, but has anyone ever had success with this sort of approach? I'm happy to keep it at its highest height all the time.
Yes. This is one fix.
You can also use either a pipe clamp or a hose clamp. A pipe clamp is likely more suitable for this type of application due to the forces involved.
Ugh the Ignite is maybe borderline too low, idk. I believe Wayfair has free returns so you could give it a free try.
There's also the Steelcase Series 1 selling on Amazon for CA$544. It's not quite on par with the quality of most other Steelcase chairs, but it's still pretty good and a good fit for you and your desk. With its 12-year warranty, it's maybe the best value in Canada (?).
If the Teknion Around is true to spec, it should be a good fit for you. I have a code to get one for just under CA$500. Unfortunately I haven't managed to test one in person, so no guarantees. And they charge a restocking fee for returns, so consider it a last resort option.
So far I am really liking it. I came [from this](https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B092D2NMV9/ref=ppx\_yo\_dt\_b\_search\_asin\_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1), which I absolutely hated. The headrest pushed my neck out way to far. and overall quality was just crap. But hey, it was a cheap Amazon chair.
Thing I like the most about the Fern so far are the arm rests. The other chair I could never get them far enough back. These position perfectly for me. Another thing I was nervous about was the lumbar support. Reviews said it was quite aggressive and hard. I find it perfect. It's actually quite soft.
I'll chime in a couple more days if my opinion changes. But so far, 5 stars from me.
Repair manuel is located in this App
One of the mods suggested a less expensive model of this chair. Only a few reviews, but is shipped 2 day from Amazon with 30 day free returns.
The CLATINA Mellet is a decent option for 2 and 4. It's one of the best budget chairs out there right now, and BTOD rated its headrest unusually great for the price. Costway currently sells it the cheapest at $180, just under a different model name: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0B17ZRT6N/
>How much to get 1,2,3?
Whew. So unfortunately flip-up armrests are considered a gimmick by most high-tier office chair manufacturers; flip-ups are either not offered at all or offered as an option on pricy, non-returnable custom chairs. We're talking at least $700 if you're lucky.
Most people who want this type chair are willing pay for new. If you removed the light block fabric on under side of chair you may find a brand name, but that's a lot of work unless you have the proper tools.
This mechanism looks similar. https://www.amazon.com/10-Antique-Classic-Mechanism-Keyworth/dp/B00W675FI2
sorry forgot to link the image that I was referring too, have a look at it in the first reply and I think it will help you understand the parts in question.
I think those parts are probably either broken by now, or some of them missing in the first place, if the metal washer are actually missing that mean the seller just sold you something that they broke, as for fixing it, you would basically need new set of those parts, for example like this.
This £425 Office Hippo Twenty Four 01
chair looks 90% like one of my favorite mid-range chairs, the 9to5 Seating Strata 1580. Should be a good fit for you unless you have a disproportionately long torso. My only concern is that I couldn't find Office Hippo's warranty terms online; you may want to contact them before purchasing.
I need an office chair that has arms that can easily move out of the way to support playing guitar. Sitting on the edge of my seat to play guitar at my computer is killing my back. I'm thinking of going for the one below since it's mesh which is a plus but I wanted to know if anyone else had other suggestions for less than 350.
Mine are not the same ones but these are the closest ones I could find: https://www.amazon.com/Aloudy-Ergonomic-Armrest-Forearms-Pressure/dp/B01M8F9IYC/ref=sr\_1\_5?crid=62NG0K0NZ69H&keywords=office+chair+arm+pads&qid=1661623434&sprefix=office+chair+arm+pads%2Caps%2C155&sr=8-5

I'm having a similar problem with office chairs at our house. We have colored concrete and the wheels are starting to pit the floor. I was looking at those rubber wheels too, but see some bad reviews that they fall apart & break.
These have 2 rubber wheels like the typical chairs:
Sytas Office Chair
KOLLIEE Mid Back Mesh Office Chair
Should I just order this chair?
Is it okay for my height? Thanks so much. Some people just say it doesnt have enough lumbar support but I could just buy a cushion right? Thanks
Update to the update: the problem came back. What ultimately fixed it applying some synthetic grease (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000XBH9HI/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1) to where the cylinder meets the base and now the problem is gone for good.
If you don't mind not having a headrest, I've had a good experience with the Bowery. Nice padding for sitting. You could also try the Clatina Mellet if you really want a headrest.
I would recommend purchasing some wheel replacements if you want to do something like this. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01G643EU6?ref=ppx_pop_mob_ap_share
I bought these recently and they were alright, I wasn’t doing anything like this though, just using them normally. I would look around at the related products and see if any wheel replacements will work for what you are doing.
Looking at the review images, for gaming chairs like this, go for large.
The "leather" version from your Wayfair link is called the Boss B305 Black Posture Chair, sold at least on Amazon - https://www.amazon.ca/dp/B002FB6Z2O
The fabric-upholstered version is called the Boss B315 Perfect Posture Deluxe Office Task Chair
Ah, right. The Mellet is probably on some site with some name, but it is probably not so simple as getting it in the US, and maybe not as cheap. The T50 seems to be on Amazon Spain/Portugal, for what it's worth.
Try searching the sub (maybe using the site:reddit.com/r/OfficeChairs trick on google) for Sihoo or maybe a broader search for what folks are looking for in your location and price range. In the end, bodies and use cases and expectations vary. The Sihoo may well work for you. Hopefully you get some more feedback soon!
Oh wow, nice find! I found that this chair from Lorell is very similar as well:
It seems the chair base is different with that tempurpedic. So I guess a lot of these manufacturers are just getting parts from china white-box part sellers, then creating "their" chair? I took a gamble with ordering the link above + the head rest. I don't expect much quality, but I have been disappointed by other "high end" brands, so unfortunately it's this way for now I guess?
You can get locking ones, which lock when there is weight on them (e.g. https://www.amazon.co.uk/noblechairs-Hard-Floor-Casters-Automatic-Function/dp/B06XF6QW6C). Probably easier to get a rug to put on your glass matt though.
Damn. This is why you always test every adjustment yourself before agreeing to purchase a used chair.
A reviewer claims this replacement cylinder fit their Hyken.
Bro, let me thank you from the bottom of my heart for this.
I have neck issues and this really does help combined with my leap v2.
guys; make sure to order bulky zip ties.
these are the ones I use:
24 inch long, 0.49 inch thick. it fits like a glove. but don't go beyond 0.49 inch thick.
Okay so I spend 3-4 hours in the chair I planned to buy, per day. So I'm not living in it and I don't need a Lambo or friggin Ferrari like these people in their chairs for 8-12+ hours. This sub is kinda filled with office chair elitists that can easily afford $800+ chairs.
That being said, there isn't a lot of info for amazon chairs or any chairs sub-$400. Most are manufactured by the same 2-3 companies and rebranded/customized with trim/colors, etc.
If you spend 8+ hours in it and can afford a ferrari for a chair, get a Herman Miller from what I've read. If you're like me it's a PITA top do a couple hours of research. Nobody on this forum will give you a good direct answer for a solid chair that's sub-$400. You kind of have to DYOR and decide what what fits your needs best.
I started on amazon with a search and whittled it down to chairs that had at least 500+ reviews, min. 4 stars, and had the particular features I wanted. Then I used Fakespot to whittle it down further. In the end I went with this. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B09X33GM52/
I got one of these and it didn't mess with ergonomics at all.
Yeah go as thin as you can handle. If you have access to Purple cushions, their portable or simply cushions should work well too.
Also what's the difference between that one and this one besides color? https://www.amazon.com/Steelcase-Platinum-Standard-Carpet-Licorice/dp/B01F7B2270/ref=sr\_1\_3?crid=B3IU4S42VR2U&keywords=steelcase%2Bleap&qid=1656559116&sprefix=steelcase%2Bleap%2Caps%2C60&sr=8-3&th=1
I would highly recommend the Clatina Soria. I am 6’1 and 195 lbs and I am able to comfortably recline and sit cross-legged in the chair. It has some pretty spectacular quality as well with a metal base and solid arms.
Here is a link: https://furngo.com/products/clatina-soria-big-tall-executive-chair?variant=31168972881989
I saw some people recommend buying some additional padded armrests and I went with these: Aloudy Ergonomic Memory Foam... https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07K528PHV?ref=ppx_pop_mob_ap_share
The color matches and they fit the arms perfectly.
As a final note, I linked the “Furngo” site because that’s where I bought the chair from since it was on a significant discount compared to Amazon. Shipped with FedEx and was 3 days early. Still on sale right now. I’d buy it wherever it is cheapest, I can personally vouch for it being one of the most comfortable seats I’ve ever sat in. Ironically, I actually returned another desk chair because I couldn’t sit cross-legged in it.
These were suggested for the Gesture by this reddit
apologies I was unclear. not the paste like substance sorry a spray lubricant like this: https://www.amazon.com/BLaster-Aerosol-White-Lithium-Grease/dp/B009JDS25O/ref=sr_1_18?keywords=white+lithium+lubricant+spray&qid=1655403026&s=hi&sprefix=white+lithium+%2Ctools%2C156&sr=1-18
I also use CLP which has had pretty good effect
Crandall offers a thicker added seat cushion with their remanufactured Leap V2 and BTOD already adds it in their base model.
I'm not in the US though. And I have this same exact cushion. https://www.amazon.com/Cushion-Breathable-Honeycomb-Wheelchair-Non-Slip/dp/B09VK6H7FY
Worked great for my Sihoo M18 with hella firm seat and also with the Fursys T50 I mentioned. I'd definitely use it on the Leap but right now I don't feel like it needs it.
Might also consider the Leap v2 Plus, which has a bigger seat than the normal one and 500lb weight rating. It's not quite full-back, but it is a very well regarded chair. It has recline stops, but not full locks.
If you're determined to go new, and if you're willing to go in butt-blind, the Clatina Mellet at $200 has got a few qualified but overall-positive reviews on this sub, and it's a pretty tough audience.
The fact that your desk is so high makes this difficult, because you won't be able to take advantage of chairs that adjust really low. You'd probably be best off buying a footrest and using an average height chair. Does the Clatina Mellet ship to you in Mexico? You can also get it with a headrest for a little bit extra.
For that price at IKEA, I think the best chair for you would be the Matchspel. It's like a cheaper version of the Jarvfjallet, but with softer foam in the seat, which makes some people like it more.
I wonder if there are any used Steelcase Leaps available near you. It's a pretty ubiquitous used chair to find in the US at least, and it adjusts to a really low height.
I covered mine with this https://www.amazon.com/dp/B08SJYD5N9/ref=cm_sw_r_apan_i_V19WM86VN98915969F9N?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1
10 bucks for 2 seat covers, and it's thicker than other brands I tried.
I also bought a purple foam since I like a softer seat on my zody. Mentioning just in case you find yourself in same situation
Yeah by fee i meant everything. Shipping alone it's like 104€.
Might just give the T50 a chance at this point, so i have a decent base to start from as what kind of feautre i like or don't.
Model is indeed the white one and kinda fun that it's from the UK amazon store so i end up paying the 60€ deposit fee anyway lol.
A great option under $250 is the Clatina Mellet. For $20 over your budget, you could get the Union and Scale Ayalon (made by Eurotech, supposedly some kind of chimera of a Vera base and Exchange back).
Staples Canada has this Raynor chair which appears to be the same as the well-regarded Workpro 4000. If you could order from Amazon USA, you could get the Clatina Mellet. For whatever reason, it's not on Canadian Amazon.
Other than that, if you can find a used office furniture store in your area and your workplace would accept that, it would be a great idea to check one out and see what kind of used high-end chairs you could find.
Headrests are tough to choose without fit testing in person, but the CLATINA Mellet is generally a solid choice - lots of adjustability for the price. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07DVLWZSK/
But over 12 hours a day... that's killing you! Perhaps consider getting a sit-stand desk instead (one that adjusts down to 25" or lower); switching postures between sitting and standing is healthier overall than just sitting, and will make sitting in your Markus more bearable.
I'd go for the IKEA Markus out of those three options. I'd also recommend the CLATINA Mellet - much more adjustable, but worse warranty and customer service than IKEA should issues arise.
Avoid headrests for in-office staff. Headrest fit is tough to get right and a poorly fitted headrest is very uncomfortable. You could buy the Hyken or Dexley and just not install the headrests, however.
The Hyken is designed for petite to average sized people only. Anyone overweight or taller than the average male will probably find it uncomfortable. The headrest in particular is too low for most people over 5'9".
The Dexley is wide and has a rather deep seat. Short folks might have trouble with their knees clearing the front edge of the seat.
The Dexley does not lock in an upright position. It is designed to recline about 20 degrees even while the tilt lock is engaged. This is good for maintaining back support, but lots of people hate not having the option to tilt lock fully upright.
Around that price range, I would suggest either the Alera Elusion or the Clatina Mellet (Steelcase Leap knockoff).
If you're okay with a fixed desk:
Steelcase Amia from Crandall - $449.00
Calico Adapta desk - $76.49! Given your height, set the desk height to ~26" to help you maintain healthy posture while typing and mousing.
I just used this one on my V2, which is an all in one solution if you like it https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B09X45JGCC/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1. It would work better with a small square of non-slip shelf liner folded over, which is what I did. Unfortunately I think there is only one point of articulation (up and downward) and not in or out like the Herman Miller one.
Under $200, the Alera Elusion is a good option. If you can do exactly $200, I'd get the Clatina Mellet.
Serta 44942 Executive Office Chair with Smart Layers Technology | Leather and Mesh Ergonomic with Contoured Lumbar and ComfortCoils | Black & White https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00T07KDL0/ref=cm_sw_r_apan_i_Y829TAW0W7GNM6DP7TXF?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1
I'm not sure I even been comfortable recommending it now. The first one as like a rock for 5 years, but with the second I leaned on one of the arm rests wrong and damaged where it connects to the seat. Tried getting a replacement from true innovation but they ghosted me. Very disappointing.
> the non adjustable arms are killing my wrists and my shoulders.
Sounds more like you need to stop using the arm rest, and get yourself a wrist rest. I type all day for my job, and this is one I've used for years and it's worked great: https://www.amazon.ca/3M-Leatherette-Antimicrobial-Protection-WR309LE/dp/B000X4WCJU
If possible, make sure that your keyboard and mouse are at a height slightly below your elbows, not above. That way both your shoulders and wrists are relaxed when you're using them.

No idea if it's legit.
My cheap Ikea chair just broke so I'm looking for a new one. I don't have any place around me to try out the super expensive ones so I don't want to pay that much for something I never tried. I saw some suggestions for the Clatina Melle, but noticed there's also the Lucia-F which is very similar, but I can't seem to figure out the difference between them:
Two of the best options for that price range are the Clatina Mellet, which is kind of a Steelcase Leap knockoff, and the Union and Scale Ayalon, which is made by Eurotech (supposedly it's either the Exchange or a chimera of the Exchange and the Vera).
Lorell Conjure LLR62000 is on sale right now and offers a lot of adjustability for the price. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07K7Y22M9/
If you prefer less lumbar support, the Alera Elusin High-Back is virtually the same besides the backrest. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0049UCECE/
So I bought a separate cylinder, the gas cylinder that raises and lowers the chair. I bought this one:
I just took out the one that came with the mellet, and assuming its at the shortest height out of the box, both my cylinder and the stock one start at the same height. Both seem to start at 11 inches. In that case, I can plant both feet flat on the floor on the lowest setting, although my legs aren't bent at a 90 degree angle. I'd probably need to go another 2 inches lower for that.
Unfortunately, probably not, although I've had to work on worse. What's your budget? Could you afford something like a Clatina Mellet or an Alera Elusion?
If you want a chair with a headrest under $350, the Clatina Mellet is a great option with your choice of a fabric or mesh back. It's kind of like a knockoff of the well-regarded Steelcase Leap.
That's definitely a structural part of the chair and that's not a plastic veneer or something. I had a Gesture with a crack in that exact same area and my first thought was oh, it's just a plastic veneer, let me see if I can take off the cracked part and reveal the underlying, uncracked structure. Nope, the crack is in the structural area.
I probably wouldn't want to pay $400 for it.
All that being said, it's not as if a crack up here is going to cause the chair to break in 2 any time soon. It's a brace for the backrest that's cracked. The rest of the chair should be solid, as the mechanism is literally made of pretty thick steel. The mechanism itself on one of these Gesture's weighs about as much as an Aeron, if not more. I doubt that you'll find yourself sitting on the floor suddenly if you purchase this chair. That being said, the back brace is under a lot of tension, especially when you recline, so I wouldn't want to pay 400 for it. I'd maybe aim for $200-250 and make this a project chair.
Since the broken area is subjected to a fairly large bending moment, it should be a relatively easy fix to restore its load-bearing properties.
If I were to buy this chair as a project chair, I would probably sand down the cracked area, prime the area, fill it with a good 2-part epoxy, and finally wrap the area with some sort of fiberglass-reinforced tape.. You're definitely not going to get a factory-looking chair out of this chair, but for a home-use chair where you don't care about how it looks, it's passable.
I know you said you don't want to put down money, but you should seriously consider this great on-sale Steelcase Amia Chair with Platinum Base & Standard Carpet Casters, Rouge https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01F7AZOB2/
It's a really high-quality chair similar to the Soji, but with nicer armrests and comfier seat per most reviews.
I've looked at so many chairs but I can't manage to find a good one at my price point. This herman miller Aeron which would cost me £584 GBP in total with shipping is the best deal I've found so far. Is a refurbished Aeron worth that money? I would really appricate some advice on this.
$840 with alpine and platinum, hard-floor casters......https://www.amazon.com/Steelcase-Chair-Platinum-Caster-Alpine/dp/B01F7B0Y2U/ref=sr\_1\_9?crid=211KHIVQ3ZSLA&keywords=leap%2Bleather&qid=1651626166&s=home-garden&sprefix=leap%2Bleathe%2Cgarden%2C87&sr=1-9&th=1
Possible Match on Amazon
Looks like a $30-$50 amazon chair
Yeah the Aeron does punish you for not sitting right. I use it at work and it’s a mixed feeling sometimes but I really like the build and material. When you want to stay focused and get work done, that’s the go-to chair for me for sure. For home, probably not as I don’t want to sit on it when watching a movie or gaming. It does feel like a $1000+ chair much more than the Leap.
I bought the platinum model and it’s now at $809!! I should probably ask amazon to refund the difference since it’s still within a month lol
For a headrest chair in the $300-$400 range, you could get the Sidiz T40 or if you could stretch your budget to $420, the higher end Sidiz T50. Both are pretty popular chairs.
For cheaper options there's the IKEA Jarvfjallet and Matchspel. The Matchspel is like a cheaper version of the Jarvfjallet, but ironically some people like it better due to the softer seat foam.
Only had spray in my hands, but yeah. Possible and looks similar.
I think this Noblewell from Amazon is it. It's possible that it's sold under other brand names too.
Thanks mate, I can see it now. I think its very similar to amazon link but much cheaper
How long did it take to deliver this? and how is your experience. is headrest good enough for reclining? Because if its good, I am going for Zody refurbished
Crandall refurbed Amia is the best within $400 online.
Best within $250 - CLATINA Mellet https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07JJ3S1LQ/
The Staples Carder has the right dimensions for you and costs $150. Pretty strong lumbar support but the backrest slope may not be great for upper back support. Seat is somewhat firm.
The HON Convergence should also be a good fit for you (slight chance the 17" minimum seat depth is too long for you to sit back all the way). A bit pricier at ~$250. Less lumbar support than the Carder but more even support for the whole back. Seat is cushier than average. Nicer armrest caps than the Carder.
A used high-end chair in good condition is better than a new $200 chair. But if you must buy new, the CLATINA Mellet is the best at its price point for most body types.

This is a great chair that I got recently. I removed the lumbar support and replaced it with a pillow and I put some aloudy cushions on the armrests and now it's very comfortable.
In the realm of new office chairs, this is the best value for the price in terms of quality and adjustability - CLATINA Ergonomic High Swivel Executive Chair with Adjustable Height 3D Arm Rest Lumbar Support and Upholstered Back for Home Office Black BIFMA Certification No. 5.1 https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07H9YLLNG
Let me guess, you sit at a fixed-height desk around 29" tall, high enough to force you to either sit cross-legged because it's not easy to plant your feet on the floor, or slouch because it's hard to sit up straight for too long.
With $400, you easily have enough for a solid CLATINA Mellet chair and an adjustable footrest or keyboard tray (clamp-on if you can't screw into the bottom of your desk) that allows you to type & mouse while sitting in healthy posture and getting full support from the backrest and your feet.
I have these and they fit great.

Do you know of any shorter ones? i've just tried this one but it's the exact same size as my current one on my ikea chair (225mm compressed from the top of the top of the metal part to the outer black cover where it starts getting narrower)
Hi all. I just found this subreddit and I am a bit overwhelmed. While I knew that a good office chair is upwards of $1,000 (I know what we paid for our chairs at work) I never really had to worry about it for home. Now I'm in the market for a new chair. Hopefully this link works - this chair is what I currently have. I bought it in 2009 and it has fallen apart at this point. But I figure I didn't pay all that much ($108) so I got tons of value out of it.
I just had a work anniversary and have been gifted around $400 and I figured it would go to great use getting a new chair. I know from reading here that's kind of the crappy point between cheap not so great chairs and middle of the road, so looking for some advice. The thing is, the $400 isn't cash - it's in credit to this catalog that uses Amazon Business, so most of the things on regular Amazon are there. The thing is, all I keep seeing are brands I've never heard of. They do have a Leap which seemed highly recommended but it's like $1000+ in the catalog. I'm only really looking to spend *maybe* $100 over the $400. So I guess between $400 and $500 and it has to be available in this catalog.
I know that's kind of an odd request, so any help would be appreciated.
Not quite yet, but I'll let you know when I find something!
I have been considering this though https://www.amazon.co.uk/BASETBL-Ergonomic-Computer-Adjustable-Executive/dp/B08S3WPWKW/ref=cm_cr_arp_d_product_top?ie=UTF8&th=1
Although it's a 'gaming' chair, most people have said it's pretty comfortable. The thing I'm looking at though is out of the 8% of the views that are 1*, 7% of those are about the casters.
I'm thinking that's potentially a good thing though since I if it breaks, I can try replacing the bottom leg mechanism with the one I'm currently sitting on. Might be a pain but surely it's better than getting a chair where the reviews are scattered about problems with the whole chair in general right?
Hey, sorry I never updated. I didn't like it! I dunno there is something weird about Serta's newer chairs where the seats are contoured in a way that make them feel smaller even though they claim to be bigger.
I ended up getting the same Serta chair I already had again. And that has been a little bit of a disappointment too. Maybe they have started using worse materials or QA has gone down, or maybe I was just really rough on it, but I guess I leaned on one of the arm rests too hard and it broke a little. It doesn't affect the chair overall much, but now the right arm rest wiggles a little.
I mean it's still my favorite chair in this price range so I am sticking with it, but I guess my next option is trying to find a CXO Nightingale and trying that for a ton more money.
Btw, this is the chair I'm currently using:
Sure thing. And yep, went with these guys - https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0897VJ54N/
Centered the headrest, and then looped them around the brackets of the headrest and the arms that support the back of the chair. Make sure to get everything aligned (i.e. zip ties) prior to fully tightening. It obviously won't sit fully flush on the back of the chair since there isn't a lip for it to hook onto, but it's plenty sturdy.
Excellent advise on the refurb brands. This one is remanufactured by CrandallOffice, so looks good there.
The Leap V2 Plus is a absolutely huge chair! Unfortunately I can't find a refurbed one currently, but it's looking like one linked above might be a winner.
Hmm it's between this or; SIHOO Ergonomic Office Chair Mesh Desk Chair with Adjustable Lumbar Support 3D Armrests Breathable High Back Computer Chair (Grey) https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B085GDG45B/ref=cm_sw_r_apan_i_1H99QC2EHN96KPV06GFX
I like the fact its brand new, also has a good amount of reviews, YouTube videos on it look good too
So, the problem is that I bought a headrest that is not attachable to the chair. I tried to look for one attachable but without success. What I did is that a bought 2 C clamps and the head rest where I managed to put it together with pressure. You can find the links below:

What I did is that I attached the clamps with the head rest so I can put it together with the chair, the only tricky side is the pressure that it needs to keep with the chair so it doesn’t get misadjusted. Hope it works!
You can have a look at mine. It was first priced 269 bucks on Amazon but I waited and bought it at $199 lol. In case you need the link: https://www.amazon.com/Ergonomic-Rolling-Support-Computer-Executive/dp/B096SCC252/ref=cm_cr_arp_d_product_top?ie=UTF8
I really like it. It leans back so nicely and gives enough support for me. The head rest feels great too. Been sitting on it like 3 weeks now, all good.
Yeah, the bearings in the rollerblade wheels are very rolly!
Standard hard floor casters look like this -- normal but with rubber wheels. (I'm pretty sure I have those exact ones.)

This is the chair im referencing.
It's listed on Amazon but seems to be unavailable so I'm guessing they don't carry it anymore either.
I guess what I meant was I liked how wide the seat was and how much padding it had. Also the length of the seat. Since I'm tall, the cushioning went all the way to my knees, where as most big all tall chairs I try, the length of the cushion stops around my mid thigh.
Walmart says the chair is 27.95 x 26.77 x 47.24 inches and I'm 6'1. I was able to lean my head back over the top of the chair and I found that to be comfortable. I've only used a few office chairs so I have no concept on what is good so this is my only baseline; the chair I didn't like was this https://www.amazon.com/GTRACING-Ergonomic-Backrest-Adjustment-Computer/dp/B01N2RJ0HI/ref=sr\_1\_12?crid=3APOY0DSOMU18&keywords=gaming+chair&qid=1647147203&sprefix=gaming+chai%2Caps%2C179&sr=8-12
I used this Lorell headrest from Amazon
Literally drilled holes in the back, got some nuts and screwed onto the bolts that came with the headrest and voila
