    So you set the back angle to 101 degrees and added 1/2" of more dump? Am I following right? So the chair is now 19.5 stf in the front?

    Just something to think about when choosing a limited adjustability model.
    I assume you mean if you had a ZRa you could lower the rear stf?

    The STF is indeed 19.5 in the front. I'm guessing the backing was 101, but it seemed to be less.

    I could easily slide into that chair. My back is currently set at about 100 degres. In experimenting with getting me lower into the wheels I have lowered the back of my chair, which tilts the whole chair. The back isn't adjustable so I can't bring it back forward. Unfortunately it tilts the feet more to and I was already a 60 degree front.

    I recently broght my chair back up a bit, concerned I may get too used to the 100 degrees, but it hurt my lower back when I did so, so I dropped it back down.

    Looking back at this chair SCI_OTR, it seems to have the same amount of bar out front of the upholstery as mine.

    This led me to look closer at my chair and I am thinking it is indeed 16 +1. If I look at the bottom side of the frame bar, I can see where the indention of the bar is for the start of the bend and it is exactly 1" past my upholstery. (If they used mandrel bending this would be much harder to determine.)

    Also, from revisiting this, I read where you say to measure for COG on the TR, I have wondered where I settled on, it appears to be about 2.5".

    Old posts like these are so helpful.

    If doing it over, I would either go with an 85 degree front, being I have the +1, or I would stay with 80 degree and not add the +1.
