It seems like every single new bike tool has to come with a beer-bottle opener built-in. This is fine, and as beer and bikes go so well together, a rather useful development in tool technology. It is also rather wasteful of resources: Almost every tool in my saddle-bag can be used to pop open a cold one.
The Road Popper from designer Pick makes all those tools redundant. It adds the bottle-opener direct to your bike, clamping it to the rails on the seat, meaning you can hop off the bike, buy a quick beer and cycle off sipping the suds without even opening your tool-roll. The Popper comes in two parts, both stainless-steel, which you clamp onto the rails yourself (screws and nuts are not supplied).
The opener is fabricated at Shapeways, the 3D-printer people, and as such takes around two weeks to arrive and costs a rather expensive $40. On the other hand, once you have this, you can save a fortune by not buying specialist “fixed-gear” tools and just pick up your wrenches from the hardware store.
Available now. Don’t drink and ride. Well, not too much, anyway.
