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...

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.

Adam: "The Hub" works on so many levels.

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.

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.

The Twisted Spoke. Actual bar/restaurant here in Chicago, but still a good name.
