    The MTBR Man Cave Thread

    Let’s see the man caves!

    My man cave is full of auto racing, cycling and aviation art, toys and memorabilia. Not seen in the picture are a reclining overstuffed chair (Power nap spot), a 55” flat screen and shelves full of toys and memorabilia. We store our road bikes in the room as well. They sort of add to the the theme.

    Looks like what my wife wishes ours looked like.

    Mine hangs way out off the side of the house in what was a shed at some point in history. (Original structure is pre-1800, it's closest to the garage in the pic.) We call it the Cabin Room; it handles dirty and drunken mountain bikers well and often. 51" TV, gaming and sound system, etc. It's far enough from the civilized parts of the house that you noise isn't a concern, has easy back porch access, and you don't have to feel bad about splashing a little beer around.

    Nice! That looks like some quintessential American dream living right there. Belongs on a magazine cover.

    Thanks man! It's a good old shack, we like it.

    Best thing (IMO) is that I'm standing 10' from our trailhead while taking that pic; moto, snowmo and mtb trails right out the door. Hence the need for a mantown that can handle post-ride festivities.

    Nice caveman !

    The Yeti on the wall is next build or on display ... broken never forgotten? Can a guy who lives alone have a man cave or is a woman nearby needed to play on this thread? Attachment 1125734 Living room has a marine tank being set up now and kitchen has a small jail tank with 3 fish ... 3 bikes and a treadmill. I'm a coffee drinker so the carpet color is just what the caveman ordered! Dirt colored ... perfect!

    Guess I have a different version of a man cave, I've always thought of the term being a place where I build things and make stuff happen, with the exception of 5 gallon buckets there isn't even anywhere to sit down in my garage/man cave.

    I'm a bachelor, all 1500sq ft is a man cave. As is the garage that I need to get off my ass and clean and organize.

    I consider my garage/workshop/sheds a little differently (besides the lack of heat and insulation); the man cave is strictly recreation-based where the others actually have some utility in that they're used to store and work on things in addition to drinking beer.

    You cannot have a man-cave if you live alone Unless of course you spend some of your time pursuing activities with a decidedly feminine bias e.g cross dressing. Then in that case you definitely need one to cater to the rapidly dying man inside .

    Since we have a garage, it was determined by the wife that that was my space and the media room was the girl cave. Yes Dear.

    Best suggestion I've seen from Net yet, put Iguana Del-Ray in a cave.

    One in Afghanistan preferably.

    Get this back on track.....

    Mine is a garage, atm there is a pile of rubbish on the right from some reno-work lve been doing, and it does need a bit of a tidy up , but to drink beer and oil bikes it doesnt need to be too tidy, no heating but in winter its always about 10 C in there which is enough, beers are in the cellar next door , music can be loud enough without annoying the family.

    Normally 11 bikes in there, but one is upstairs on the trainer, and my son is currently out on the other

    I don't think this qualifies as a man-cave. This looks like a living-room with bikes in it!

    Mood lighting? Ok, we need rules here. You can't put a bike in a living-room and call it a man-cave. A man-cave cannot be a room that looks like your wife decorated. Or one she would even approve of perhaps!

    My man cave is in transition right now since I am moving, but it normally contains my drum sets and bass guitars on one side, and my sports card collection on the other. Bikes stay in the basement so I can wrench and not worry about getting things dirty.

    Womenfolk and the effete are supposed to walk in, look around quickly with a bit of evident disgust, wrinkle their noses and beat a hasty retreat. I like to keep a mix of sweaty gear, stale beer and just a touch of 2-stroke fumes in the air at all times to keep out undesirables. It's a man-cave not a metro-sexual-cave dammit!

    Zactly. I have a giant spider hanging just inside the door, because my daughter hates spiders!

    So, man-cave rules then?

    A man-cave cannot be spotlessly clean. Chairs should not have cushions, although you can get away with it if they do not match. It should not have curtains, no exceptions. Keeping your shoes on is mandatory, putting them on the table or chairs, encouraged. If the cave has carpet it must look like a carpet no one else would want. Non-matching rugs on bare floor is better. Horrible colours, better still.

    A man-cave is a two-fingered salute to the rest of the house and as such should be as self-sufficient as possible. It must have its own music system, preferably vinyl, and a well stocked supply of snacks and drinks. A dedicated toilet is preferable but a bucket or hole in the wall will do.

    To further the isolationist theme, the man-cave should not be easily accessible to the rest of the family. A completely separate building is preferred but if this isn't possible, it should at least be in a room or space as far away from the main part of the house as possible. A part of the house no one else wants to visit. A room between the living-room and kitchen will not do. I should be a space that men like, everyone else is slightly afraid of. Children should cry.

    Man-cave decorations should be manly themed, like rock music, cars, bikes and sports. Other decorations are ok but should be as obscure as possible. Any shelving or furniture should be roughly made of wood or metal. A simple way to ensure your furniture meets man-cave standard is to limit construction tools to a saw, a hammer and some nails. If you don't trust yourself to get it right, have the furniture built by drunk gypsies.

    Keeping your tools and hardware in the man-cave is fine, but they must be positioned in a way that allows them to pose a danger to children. Pipes and electrical cables should be left exposed if possible. Everything possible should be done to justify the exclusion of all kids and sensitive types from the cave. You don't want them there and they should not want to be there. This is not a family room, it is a MAN-cave, get it??

    I know that and I knew that when I posted that.
    It's still mood lighting depending on what mood you're in while kicking back in there. I bet it could change your mood.

    You're not getting this at all.

    Things that are in the man-cave, by definition, aren't worth money. The cave should contain only used, worn and scavenged items. Bikes should be dirty and look well ridden. If your cards were worth money, they turn into plain oil bits of card with pictures on once they're in the man-cave.

    so the cards would live in a different place...sort of like the living room!! I love it. I am sure my fiance will love it too.

    I would definitely try to recreate CBGB's then in my man cave...CBGB's with a punk rock bike shop next door...

    The new "CB's" is a focking embarrassment. I saw GG Allin eating raw chicken laying on trash in an alley after a show. I have a picture of it laying around somewhere.

    Epic.
    I love tormenting people with GG footage, then maybe segue into some Mentors to lighten the mood. Sometimes people see things they can't unsee in the cave.

    I never realized how many rules there were in the construction of a man cave. It's a no wonder I never went through the trouble. Hell with permits and such it must be quite a hassle.

    Yes...The Mentors!!!

    I can't even look at what Bleeker and Bowery has become...

    my friends band played CB's in 1991, and I was running lights. Got to meet Flavor Flav and Terminator X that night as they were cruising the city and had stopped in to CB's. Also met and hang out with Tommy Victor of Prong who as running sound that night. It was one of the best nights of my life!

    Me either. Hell, I'd have to buy more stuff just to make the garage an acceptable level of dangerous apparently. I guess I could all my loaded guns from sketchy nails precariously. I wonder if that would count?

    This man cave thing is over rated. Can I just hang out on my couch with the t.v. and a computer close by. Only steps from a beer stocked refrigerator and a bike leaning against the wall?

    That's all great but the rules put forth in this thread make it seem like it's a HOA community.

    That's what I was doing. But I was informed that doesn't count. It's all given me a cave inferiority complex.

    I don't have a man cave, but I do have my office where I work on my productions and have all my tech gadgetry, CAD station and desk... the cats have beds in the window and on top of the closet in there, they wander in and out, but my wife asks before she comes in... If I close the door, one of the cats will get pissed and jump up onto the door handle and come swinging in with a bad look... On the flip side, my wife has her studio room where she paints and works, and I ask before I go in there.
    Bikes live in the garage, I have a small work area there, and I love spending time tinkering in there when I get sick of being indoors in my office. If I want go lay on the couch I do that too... perfect setup for me!

    I had my fair share of sticky floors in the 70s in London thank you very much! And here's a picture of Lemmy I took at the end of our street in World's End Chelsea in the summer of '76 when we shared a flat... I think he is stuck to the sidewalk in this. It was a hot day...

    Hey rockerrc, what CAD program do you use for your productions? I use Vectorworks, Designer version. Everyone else in my company uses the Spotlight version. I use some of the spotlight tools but I don't really get into the lighting design tools. We do corporate events, I just got back from Vegas.

    I'm an AutoCad guy mostly, but that is an increasing part of what I do so I am now getting into Vectorworks Spotlight as it has better tools for the show environment. Problem is that most venues run an AutoCad version of one kind or another, and VW is a relative unknown for them. The designer I now work with primarily is a VW guru, writes a lot of the software that VW uses now, so between us we make it work well.

    that is totally legit!! What a great touch to history you have!!

    I was just a pup in the 70's so my share of sticky floors was had in the 80's with the DC hardcore scene as well as the underground thrash and metal scene too. Early BMX and skateboarding culutre as well, though I never skated. I just rode culverts and half pipes on my bike

    I'm a CAD dork also (ACAD with CADWorx Plant on it, mainly modelling process piping for biopharm. Also use Navisworks quite a bit for BIM coordination) No CAD or CAD talk allowed in the mancave though. I try to keep it as geek-free as possible.

    Argh! You can't have cats in a man-cave! Dogs, no problem. Cats, no way!

    What about big cats? Maybe he's got an ocelot, or a bobcat? Those things will make mince meat out of a dog.

    Grasshopper, if you wish to unlock the power of your constituents, you must sleep amongst and genuinely assimilate in the midst of your constituents. Perhaps you could begin by moving the bed to the center of the room.

    Don't laugh. I know a bike shop that is pretty much this. Ok, there is a wall between the toilet and the rest of the room and there is no bed but the guy practically lives in the place and the toilet looks like it hasn't been cleaned since it was installed!

    I'm certainly not a fighter, but I'd wager that poop could be an effective weapon, so there could be a bit of overlap on a venn diagram for those 2 activities.

    Here's half of my man cave. I work on the tubeless stuff, rear cassette and chain work along with the bang bang hobby.

    My garage is the other half where I have a bike stand and all the tools for after ride tune ups. Women come to the garage, but avoid my basement.

    When GG Allin was involved, there was a LOT of overlap for those two activities.

    Saw him once in Atlanta, we left before the encore, when the sh!t was most likely to literally hit the fan.

    I have a garage, but my moto and a buddies moto is in there, along with all my other bikes, and a bunch of shit I need to go through and clear out. No room to tinker in there really. So I guess if I had to be nailed down to an area, it'd be what most would use for a dining room. I'm closer to the beer in the fridge this way anyway. Spent this afternoon installing my new fork and dropper post, can't wait to ride tomorrow.

    Net, I got a Bontrager Drop Line. Haven't ridden it yet, but I really like the way it's setup with no bleeding and cheap easily replaceable cartridge, how the lever mounts, and super light lever feel. I'm comparing it to my RockShox Reverb Stealth and Gravity Dropper Turbo LP as far as features are concerned.

    I've heard good things about the Fox post. I REALLY dig that remote! May have to add one of those if this one doesn't sit just where I want it. I've been lucky, haven't had any issues out of my Reverb, but I know a lot of folks have, and they're a PITA to service from what I hear.

    I just read up on the Bontrager post. That one seems a like a winner.

    Maybe these manufacturers are figuring out how to make the oil/air sprung one reliable, finally.

    If not, the E*13 one coming soon is a good ole mechanical spring unit (4 positions) in a modern and aesthetically pleasing package. And their remote is said to rival the Wolf Tooth.

    I've never thought of "sh!t hitting the fan" in that way ever before, but from now on that's how I'll always think of it!

    ~6 years ago I was on a job and had my ipod hooked up to the jobsite radio playing random songs, some city employees showed up who I was talking with, and "**** authority" started playing, I was pretty quick to excuse myself and unplug my ipod...

    I hope so Net. I loved the gravity dropper, three years and not one issue. I did ditch the boot immediately, but not enough drop, and external routing is why I upgraded. I scored the Drop Line with one ride on it for half price, so hopefully it works out. If not, I'll check out that E13 too.

    I loved the reliability of my GD turbo. Hated the remote, though.

    The remote is joke on those things. Stiff and gritty, and half plastic. I was honestly shocked at that for the price I paid a few years ago.

    Hell, it's the OC, I thought we were required to be off topic. But, since my feet are being held to the fire...just to the left of my bike in the pic, my other man cave area hobby. Full sim race cockpit setup, FFB wheel, pedals, handbrake, shifter, including Oculus Rift VR headset. Lots of fun!

    It's the angle of the pic, it's a 32" screen, plenty big for 2D gaming. And it's on a VESA mount so you can pull it towards you, tilt it, etc to put it right where you want it. I do all my racing in VR anyway, so the screen is just to get things setup.

    Thanks man. Yeah, it's hooked in, but not motion. One Aura bass shaker transducer bolted to the bottom of the seat, a SMSL 98e amp (fantastic desktop amps BTW), and SimXperience's SimVibe software that takes telemetry from the sim games and outputs it as an audio signal. You feel every curb, clunk of a sequential gearbox, car contact, crash, etc. With it and VR, it's incredibly immersive.

    Yeah, images shared from Imgur don't show up on here anymore.

    I have an idea...I'll screen cap the white boxes, and post the screen cap on Photobucket, maybe they'll show up then.

    Back to the manhats man cave, like!
    That's what a man cave is supposed to look like. Bikes, beer, urinals a Jeep and grease. A bit of mtb history on the walls and we are complete. A hot young lady serving up the brews wouldn't be too bad, but...

    No prob, man. I just can't believe that worked.

    Here's a screen cap hosted on photobucket on what it would have looked like if it didn't work.

    I'm kinda confused.

    I guess photobucket understood that in my second example, I was wanting to show how it would look if it didn't work, and adjusted it's imagery algorithm to accommodate me.

    Grabbed some pictures of my shed today. It's not usually this untidy!

    Workbench, tools and parts in the middle. Bike storage one end. Seating area at the other. Really cool recent addition is a turntable! :0) Still don't know exactly where it is going to live.

    Big spider to keep my daughter out ;0)

    Take down the airplane and build a floor to ceiling entertainment center (centre?) complete with a giant flat screen, premium sound system, and shelving to hold your record collection!

    Might wanna soundproof the whole building first, tho.

    No way. That Spitfire is great! It's a solid wood display model, I was very lucky to find it. Besides, I don't want a TV in there. The idea is to get away from the world, not take it with you. You can spend hours out there doing nothing at all :0)

    I actually bought that spider for my daughter's birthday, hoping it would help her get over the fear of spiders. Totally backfired. Screamed the place down and called me for everything. I was the worst dad in the world :0. Then she put the spider in a plastic bag and hid it, refused to tell me where it was. Eventually I said that if she told me where it was I would get rid of it.

    So she gave me the spider and I put it right inside the door of the shed! Worst dad in the world :0)

    Nice shed Herr Pig! Perticcerly like the Spitfire! Maybe hang it from the roof so you can bang your head on it all the time? Then all you'd need is a Me109 and you can have dogfights all day when you've run out of things to do on the bikes!
    Do you got some heating going for those cold Scottish days and nights?!?

    Had a lot to do with it. I had two small sheds that were packed full. The bikes were getting damaged and I had to work outside, which was hopeless.

    I've got a little fan heater but it's only needed when it's very cold. For the most part it's fine, pretty comfortable.

    If I hung the Spitfire from the roof you'd only see the underside. It suffered quite a bit of damage in transit. The guy I bought it off basically just wrapped a single piece of card around it. Had to patch it up.

    Yeah I wouldn't pigeonhole the Spitfire.

    I like the idea of no TV, although I'd like something where I could display instructional YT videos.

    No, not the instructional videos where I need a box of tissues.

    There is something elegant and beautiful about the outline of the Spitfire. From pretty much any angle they are wonderful. In the village where I last lived in England there was a guy who lived in the manor house around the corner who restored a Spitfire and had a private runway on his estate. He would take part in a lot of the Battle of Britain flights and such, and every so often would take it up for a spin around the area. My wife is American, and one summer afternoon we were up at the cricket ground watching our village play the neighbours, sipping pints with a ploughman's lunch by the pub there. As we sat there we heard the Merlins fire up, and soon had the Spitfire doing rolls and lazy turns above us... quintessential England, albeit from a bygone age. She thought we were all nuts...

    I'm not saying get rid of the Spitfire, just move it. And if you don't want a tv, that's fine, more room for vinyl!

    Thanks for the nice story and totally agree. The Spitfire is one of my all-time favourite pieces of design. Another being the Rega RB300 tonearm.

    But do you see what is wrong with that model I have? I saw it straight away.

    Yeah, the way the Spit sounds is amazing too. And the way it moves in the air. It has a grace to the way it moves, fluid and almost organic.

    I have an old laptop hooked up to an old monitor in the shed, just junk that was lying around the house, specifically for looking stuff up on the net. It's a good idea. If you want to know something about the fork you've got in bits you can find it there and then rather than having to go into the house.

    And you can't see it but there is an acoustic guitar in there! ;0) It's a three-quarter size one in bag down the side of one of the chairs. Got it in a charity shop for about ten-pounds.

    Hmm, not sure what's up with the model. It's a Mk II I think, paint looks right, roundels are maybe a tiny bit small, but I don't see anything glaring...

    The spinner doesn't look right.

    It's not pointy enough.

    If it's not that, then i dunno.

    There are a few things wrong with it. You can't see from the picture but it's supposed to represent Douglas Bader's last spitfire, and they've actually got some of the small details right. Like having the bulges on the tops of the wings for the bigger guns fitted to later Spits but not actually having those guns, because Bader didn't want them. But there is one glaring fault, common to a lot of models and illustration of the Spitfire. The wing shape is wrong.

    You can see it clearly in this picture. On my model the curvature of the leading and trailing edges of the wings is very similar, almost exactly the same. The real wing has a leading edge that is much straighter.

    On the earlier models, the Mk1 and 11 which were the models used in the Battle of Britain, the 'A' model wings were used, which did have a slightly more curved shape...

    The MTBR Man Cave Thread-supermarine-spitfire.jpg

    The outline changed subtly I believe with the B, C and then E wings. These configurations were driven mainly by what armaments were used. I was a big fan when I was a kid, and one of my uncles was a BOB pilot who became an Air Vice Marshall. He got me started on my love of these things
    Here's a link to an example, albeit small scale, of your plane:

    Interesting stuff, thank you. Personally, I have no problem with a thread about the Spitfire :0)

    Well?
    Where's the Spitfire thread? How long does one need to wait around here? I'd start it but I'm clueless on planes in general.

    I get in them and travel and on occasion fly with women that are trying to get their hours in to get their pilots license.

    If she doesn't have here license yet, I'm guessing that there's a flight instructor onboard?

    Yes there was. Funny you mentioned that. Many years ago and he was all over it. I however acted nonchalant as I shit my pants with her at the main controls. I won the prize. nuff said.

    More: She received more hours toward her ultimate goal as a licensed pilot. I reaped the rewards of a non suspecting passenger. Just an FYI it was over the Rockies, but luckily the weather cooperated and it was a flawless flight.
