    Does it fit well with Logitech G27?
    It's particualrly space saving?
    Can you bend it someway if you wanna put away for some time?

    The wheel and pedal plates come with various holes pre-drilled for the different wheels including the G27.
    It doesn't fold but if you take the wheel and pedals off it would be easy to split the frame into 2 parts by unscrewing a couple of bolts.

    Ok, thank you!
    Sorry for answering late.
    Can I still ask if the seat is high enough for a mid tall desk?
    Or is it possible to height someway?
    I alwasy fear with a seat like that I would see no more my monitor...

    I think the section behind the steering wheel would fit under a desk.
    I use a monitor stand - the bottom of the monitors is about 80cm off the ground.

    Ok thank,
    So you would suggest this seat to me, or you would rather prefer to suggest another seat?

    I'm really happy with the CSL but I don't know how it would work together with a desk!
    You could also check out the GTomega rigs which I've had good experience with too.
