    Really love those office racing chairs and I am in the market for one.

    As I am pretty tall (198cm) so i'd need one that will fit my height properly.

    Any suggestions apart from the known bigger brands?

    ...is ****. Stay away. You'll be more comfortable in an ultra-hard wooden kitchen chair.

    However, this...

    ...is much better. FK is well known and good quality, but a tad expensive. I've had one and it served me well throughout the years. I'm 186cm and 100kg. It dosent come with arm rests which is good as you dont need them, and I also dismounted the wheels to stop it from sliding. I chose one in suede since its more comfortable than leather (breathes better).
    Edit: it does actually come with armrests, but you still dont need them..

    My tip: [​IMG]
    The armrests are adjustable in height and you can rotate them into 3-4 positiona changing the angle. You can even screw them off without losing stability. 2 screws per side. What I did is let 1 screw per side, so Im able to rotate them on the inner screw axis giving me more space while driving.
    Also, instead of the wheels I put some rubber pieces for better stability while pressing the brake, no more backwards sliding!
