Since I have experience using an exercise ball as a chair, I still sit on this chair with the missing bar. However, a handful of times the chair has shot out from underneath me because the ball started to roll out of the base - and I use this chair at work directly atop hard wood flooring. I would highly recommend this chair for "desk jockeys" as it does encourage good posture and helps strengthen my core and lumbar regions. However, I would wait to see when/if Gaiam begins using higher quality material for the "metal" bar.
Overall not a bad concept on design.. It's just really poorly built and made with extremely cheap material.
I bought this chair on July 10, 2016 and received 2 days afterward via prime. Here I am writing this review with a broken chair on September 21, 2016 - see attached pictures for poor quality material. These low quality "Made in China" bolts & parts have a mean time before failure of ~2 months.
I warn against buying this chair, especially at such a high price point. Yes, I am a sucker.. I fell for it!! They are probably making a killing off of these things while leveraging economies of scale!! Gai-WHAMMMMM! Just got smacked by the profit train -_-
Additionally this chair does not even provide back support as it claims "ergo." When you try to lean back/"butt up" in order to gain a fixed posture the chair back is made of cheap plastic and is affixed to more cheap plastic so the chair just leans back and provides no support.
Overall I'm very disappointed by the quality of this chair. You live and you learn. In other news, I have a used Gaiam chair for sale!!!
Once the chair arrived I was anxious to open it up and get it assembled. It went together very easy and I had it set up in no time. I decided to compare it to my original chair and noticed they were the exact same! The quality seemed to be on par with my original chair. The only difference I saw was a redesign on how the front metal bar attached to the chair. Unfortunately, the bar came broken. I decided to email the company and they informed me it would be 8-10 weeks before they got any metal bars in since they were on backorder but they put me down on the list to ship one out to me once they became available. I am still waiting for the bar to come in but the bar isn't really needed to keep the ball in place.
I see a lot of reviews complaining the ball is the wrong size. What these people failed to realize is the ball needs to be filled up more over time to let the ball gradually expand. If you try and fill it up to full capacity right away than you will pop the ball. It only took me a few days to get the ball to the same size as the one Ive had for several years. Depending on your height, weight, and comfort level will dictate how much air you put in the ball. If you do not put enough air in the ball and sit down, it will put pressure on the metal bar and snap the bar at the bottom. That is the main reason these bars break. Its not because of a poor design but because they did not fill up the ball enough. You will know if the ball has enough air when you sit down and look at the bar. If the ball is pushing against the bar and you see the bar flex than you need more air or you will break the bar and possibly pop your ball
If you sit on this chair wrong and lean back on one of the corners then you run the risk of smashing the plastic causing the chair to bend and break at the wheel base. I took a star off because the bar came broken but other than that I would not hesitate to purchase this item again. I hope this review helped clarify some of the negative reviews you see for this product. Its a great product if you follow the proper steps in setting this chair up!
The grey chair in the picture is the new chair I recently bought on amazon. The black chair in the picture is the one Ive owned for over 7 years. The difference between the two is the grey chair has the leg extenders installed. Other than the redesign of the bar the chairs are the exact same!
