Let’s see your pain cave

I’m in the market for a rolling, easily adjustable, flat screen tv stand.

Here’s the use case: a treadmill and Kickr in the same workout space, facing head to head. I’d like to be able to mount a TV on a stand, then roll the stand into position and adjust height + tilt for either machine, as required. Ideally, the stand would have some kind of lower rack. This is an opportune time for me to replace my Mac Mini, so I’d attach the Mini to the TV, install WiFi Mouse on our phones, and use that as the interface.

Background: My wife loves the treadmill and dislikes the Kickr. I love the Kickr and dislike the treadmill. We’d each like to upgrade from the phones and tablets we’re using now. This strikes me as an elegant solution. My Google-fu has turned up some options, but I thought it’d be wise to ask you, smart folks, before pulling the trigger.

If you have a better idea, I’m all ears (and eyes).

Following with interest …

I built my own but you’d need something lighter and with wheels. I was looking at this one myself before. Whatever you get make sure you can lower the screen enough so that you don’t have to crane your neck to see it. You’ll notice the one I built is very low, but you don’t have to go as low as mine.

There’s a few options on there, you may need something with a mount that is more adjustable.

A little nicer, would be better for you I think.

Thank you, Jlopes. This is very helpful.

I didn’t realise with a no vid playing you can watch something else at the same time on the same screen, I could watch repeats of this years big races from GCN if you could

Got it sorted, didn’t even think to try this but now see that instead of maximising the workout, I can minimise it then pull the workout down to the bottom of the screen, now I can race MVDP in my own way :joy::rofl::rofl:

Have me inspired too. Considering this Steel TV Mobile Cart: AVA1500-60-1P Black - North Bayou

Now, how to sell the concept? Over a morning coffee, glass of red, romantic dinner …

Now that’s a great angle😎

Only on a laptop platform, unfortunately. Not an option with my tablet. Not YET, anyway…

I love the double use of that…COOL!!!

I have been doing some work to the pain cave for the upcoming winter season. Wall now boarded, TV on the wall, cables tidied. Add lights around the TV which react to the screen. If I could show a video of it I would, but the photos give you an idea.

I’m quite happy with it!



Next step is upgrading the Direto to Kickr. I may wait a couple of weeks to see if Wahoo give anything extra away for Black Friday (hint hint if anyone is reading this who knows!) but not expecting any discount as trainers are in such demand still.

The world is my pain cave. (Today, anyway.) Beautiful autumn day in New England. Moved everything outside for the day, though chickens attacked my cables.

Umm……I don’t think that’s a cave. It’s the place where you ride a bike without attaching it to a cave anchor. I’ve heard it called the Outdoors.
