A small vintage cycling mancave in Saigon - Vietnam

Hello from Saigon - Vietnam!

Today, I would like to introduce my small vintage cycling mancave.

The clip is done by my brother. It's a bit too long. Anyway, hope you all enjoy watching!

Cheers,

Congrats to both of you. I really enjoyed seeing your collection and how beautifully you've restored and maintained the bikes. And the cycling related items are great too. Love the component filled fish tank. Even enjoyed your organized parts shelves.

And I appreciated your brother's camera work. I see that there is a popular style lately where the camera work is all rapid movements and herky jerky shots of things, jumping around. I suspect it's just fine for folks that grew up on video games. Not me. Your brother's camera movements are just right, smooth and even. He lingers nicely on details we want to study and appreciate. He gives us the time to look. It feels like the way I would move around your room if I was there in person. Thanks for posting. Oh, good soundtrack too!

Nice presentation great job with your bikes to. I like the parts tank, for some reason I feel like you planted a ball bearing and it sprouted a group!

Thank you! I like everything about the room and the art of making this film.
The word "Cave" doesn't do your room justice.

When Captain Willard opens Coppola's epic, "Saigon. $#it. I'm still only in Saigon," it's obvious he didn't awaken in this beautiful room.

Cool bikes and nice, fluid camera work. Is there a Steadicam effect available for smartphones these days?

I liked that Simplex-In-Gipemme-Clothing rear derailleur early on. Never seen one of those before.

Hi Prowler! I am glad that you enjoyed the clip. Your compliments & comments are really encouraging to me, myself & my brother. You made his day!

As you may guess, we are of early 60's generation. That's why, we love everything slow & smooth like when we were just kids...so no herky jerky shots at all. My bro just did filming like he is eyeing the things with enough time for observing, no jumping. What you said was exactly what he did, so he does appreciate your comments.

Cheers,
