The Jerker was discontinued over 15 years ago. You wont find one in store, even if they were open.
yes a sad day i had one
He probably found a used one. But not local.
rarely find them local, always hours to drive
Possibly, but in that case, why doesnt he just simply contact the seller and ask?
i do but most people don't care to measure or don't reply at all. i just want to prepare if i find one someday.

Ikea faux black wood desk and drawer. Two legs on other side. I moved the Jerker/whatever it is to the other wall. This is my gaming side now.

You watch your mouth, mister! It's not a whatever! :ROFLMAO:

I'm just not 100% sure it's a Jerker. If so, it's a great desk. If not, it's a perfect clone.
The guy I bought it from locally sold it for $40 (I think it was) and said he had it for many years.

Not a single ding or scratch though.

Also has pop out access on the top left and right and side legs for cable management. Not sure if Jerker's have that. I'm ignorant in that subject.

I actually don't remember if it did have cable management or not. I'm thinking not. My old Jerker is somewhere in Maryland being used on a DAW. They were really good for that. I do miss it sometimes.

What's that galant curved desk on page 1. Cannot find that. All current Ikea desks seem small and pathetic in comparison.

Just came to say I miss this thread and this entire sub-forum. At one point it was so largely populated and new posts appeared every single day. Where did you guys go? I'm responsible as well as I left the forum a while ago and haven't come back.

Blame IKEA. They discontinued the Jerker and Galant, years ago. I've kept my Galant for 20 years because there's just nothing better, IMO.

It's pretty good, but not in the same class as the Galant. You could add several different sized pieces to build a truly customized Galant desk. Can't do that with the Bekant.
fair enough. i acquired my Galant abut 10 years back and never looked back. picked up an opposite corner piece in the clearance/return bin 8.5yrs ago and have been good since then.

Sure does! Mine is 20 years old. Still looks pretty good and works great for an old man.
I'm not sure where the desk was used before I snagged it, but it's in excellent shape. I'd say 95 out of 100. Faint ring where somebody left a glass and very small spot where it looks like the clear finish chipped away. I got super lucky.
