    I'm not too hard on my chairs and they
    have lasted for over 15 years (not the paint job though) while still performing well. I would just replace all the bearings myself every 3 or 4 years. I...

    It's sad, because they make a damn fine chair with some really innovative options. Less choices is never a good thing. :(

    I've gone through this issue myself with a travel shower seat. It's the same problem. Why can't anyone invent a shower/toilet seat with folding legs that are adjustable in height and lock in place?...
