Just Plain Mean
- May 18, 1997
The seat is flaking on my dx racer. I should just splurge and get a Steelcase or something.
You will like our video today then. https://hardforum.com/threads/noblechairs-icon-desk-chair-unboxing-and-build.1941088/Having done 3 discs in my back a couple of years ago I went looking around looking at chairs (I work from home).
I eventually bought a Noble Chair from overclockers.co.uk, I think it's great and would be worth you reviewing.
Just a bit of an update on the chair - I got some upgraded casters on it, these puppies right here:
And it basically killed three birds with one stone - no more wobbly off center caster drag, it raised the entire chair about 1/4" higher, thus eliminating the low dragging cylinder when you are sitting in the chair, and bonus is the fact I can now roll around on my wood floors without having to worry about scratching/marring with these clear rubberized wheels.

Looking at the Champ Chairs website you mentioned, I would have chosen a chair from the DXRacer Big Boss Series. But whatever. (Written while sitting in a $400 OFM 810LX chair).
If anyone wants this fail of a chair, it's on Mass drop right now...
(Also, I still do the understand why anyone needs racing chairs with side bolsters infront of a computer. Taking tight high G turns?)
