    Need a Cycling 'Tavern' Name

    I am moving into a new house in the next month. It has a very nice 'mancave' basement. Complete with a very nice wet bar, will have a projector for winter trainer sessions and other manly things. Bikes mounted on the walls for storage, cycling related photographs (of myself and my wife) etc.

    Now i just need a name for this place. I am having a hard time thinking of one, i ride everything from cyclocross to triathlon.

    and go...

    You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich.
    You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong.
    You cannot bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift.
    You cannot lift the wage earner up by pulling the wage payer down.
    You cannot further the brotherhood of man by inciting class hatred.

    The Vicious Cycle

    (not my own idea, but I thought it sounded cool when I heard it)
    I stop for people / whose right of way I honor / but not for no one.

    I'm pretty sure there's a bike shop in SoCal with that name.

    Near my work in Portland there's a branch of Hopworks Urban Brewery: HUB for short.

    Plenty of pubs over here that have cycling connections such as the "Bicycle Arms". But going a bit more appropriate

    The "Cranks Rest" Or "Phsyco's Inn"

    Does the winner get anything?

    "Handlebar" might be a good name. "Off the Back" would be appropriate at our house. "Arrivee" (check that French spelling) could be good.

    Winner gets free beer if they stop by my house after a ride

    The only thought I could come up with last night was "The Bottom Bracket"

    I like the Broke Spoke though

    I worked at a cycling theme bar in Pensacola FL back in the 80's and it was called "the HandleBar". It was a wild place with 25 cent drafts.

    While others have labelled me antisocial at various times, it's actually not true. I just don't like people.

    Rusty nipples, Rusty spoke, Spoked nipple, Wobbly wheel, Cycle cellar.

    You could make bar stools out of some of those wide springer saddles, and a cycle powered blender.

    This. Because naming your basement seems lame. "Man cave" is even more lame. In the remodel end of my industry I hear this term a whole lot. It never gets less lame.
    Whether you think you can, or think you can't, you're probably right
