    Bringing bikes and beer together, at last!

    A couple buddies and I have decided that it is time to bring together the two greatest things in the world- biking and beer! We've designed a seat clamp that has an integrated bottle opener. We want to know what you guys think. We have 2 designs- Nectar is a fixed collar:



    And Elixir is a quick release:



    If you guys like them, check out our Kickstarter project here.

    so you have to open the bottle sideways? there could be a little spillage in the village.

    That's the beauty- you are off your bike when you are opening the beer (hopefully!), and you naturally tilt it toward you. Here's a three part image showing the sweet opening action.



    You can go to Kickstarter to see a video of the prototypes in action here.

    Nope. Joking around is COMPLETELY necessary.

    And the words aren't bitter when there's a smiley on 'em.

    Now the picture on the other hand, that was pretty harsh

    Imagine: biking back to your favorite camp spot, towing a cooler of beer and snacks, and sitting around the fire with your buddies kicking back some beer.

    Why add all that weight to the frame when this is an option?
    "Oh, how one wishes sometimes to escape from the meaningless dullness of human eloquence, from all those sublime phrases, to take refuge in nature, apparently so inarticulate, or in the wordlessness of long, grinding labor, of sound sleep, of true music, or of a human understanding rendered speechless by emotion!" -Boris Pasternak, Doctor Zhivago

    Hard to argue with that, but if you learn to use this opener quickly while seated, it looks like you opened a bottle with your buttcheeks, how rad is that?

    As posted, there are several options already. Some without even having to bolt any thing *extra* on your ride.


    Or bring an option that requires no special tools.

    I think it is a novel innovation. I need one. New Belgium Brewery is all compression caps. If that orange is Bronco Orange, my shopping is done.

    I've been told my return to fat tire riding is maybe the middle to late May. About the same time the temps break 100.
    I think its disgusting and terrible how people treat Lance Armstrong, especially after winning 7 Tour de France Titles while on drugs!

    I can't even find my bike when I'm on drugs. -Willie N.

    I put my 1960s bottle opener on my downtube. It even has a magnet to catch the caps so that I don't get any flat tires.

    BEER RUN is the name of my entry into this years build off at www.RatRodBikes.com.
    It has over 80 beer parts on it, including a flashing COLD BEER sign.
