Sim racing wheel stands sold in Canada?

There have been a few topics on this in the past, but I don't see anything recent.

I'm looking at stands for a Logitech G27 racing wheel setup, but very few seem to be sold in this country.

The two I've found:
Now, both of those options seem to be a hell of a lot better than a few years ago, when all the threads were horror stories about outrageous shipping costs and brokerage fees on orders from the US and Europe. But are there more choices than this?

I'm really interested in the Wheel Stand Pro or something similar so I can play from my couch instead of migrating to my desk when I want to race but I just can't justify spending almost as much for a stand as I paid for the G27 itself. $179 for a simple stand just seems crazy to me

i've built a full cockpit...i love it but I've downsized to an apartment so I've been eyeing the WSP...didn't bite yet cause there are concerns about left foot braking/heel-toe and the post gets in the way

I almost wanna just buy the DX and try it out...like seriously how can it have practically no reviews online...

pay to play...you should've factored in the cost of a set up whether full or stand when you bought your wheel :twisted:

think of the people that buy the $500 cockpit + eyefinity monitors + fanatec wheels

We come here looking for deals. We use the savings on the things we buy to justify buying more things, thus filling our homes with tons of unnecessary consumer products. Such is the key to happiness.

This is my current desk setup which is OK when it's setup here http://i.imgur.com/pOtLzTL.jpg

The problem is sometimes I move my tower to my living room so I can play certain games on my HDTV with a controller and have nothing good to setup my wheel on there.

I'm using this for my G27; http://www.homedepot.ca/product/flip-top-stand/906077. Cost $60 and doesn't take up much much space.
where does your shifter go?
where do your pedals go? there's so many posts in the way?

The wheel and shifter both fit on the flat top and I straddle the middle post withe the clutch on the left side and brake/accelerator on the right of the post.

Please post a pic of your arrangement including the chair. It looks like the post will get in the way of the chair?

maybe it's the angle of the pic but is something blocking your clutch pedal or can you easily use it?

Also both clamps on the wheel are snug on that tabletop? It's bigger than it looks from the home depot site.

It's the angle. I have no issues getting to the clutch as my foot comes to it from the left side. If you look at the first pic you'll see that the metal post is quite a bit higher than the pedals. The actual stand is bigger than it looks on the HD stock photo and both the wheel and shifter fit. I had to fit a block of wood under the shifter (not in pic) because it's clamping screw wasn't long enough to grab on.
