    Bottle opener

    So I finaly got my hands on an old road frame to build up. It has semihorizonal drop outs. I plan on welding on trackends.Should I use track drops with a built in bottle opener,or mount a traditional opener on the down tube for the seat?

    So your vote is for the traditional seat tube mount?

    Are you for reals? You can find that at any grocery store here.

    p.s. that's the best idea ever.

    how good pbr tastes is directly proportional to how big of a container you're drinking it out of. It tastes best in metal, then plastic then glass. From best tasting to least best tastin:

    Kegstand
    Tallboy
    12 oz can
    Solo Cup
    Beach Friendly Plastic Twist off bottle
    40 oz
    Pub glass
    glass bottle

    you should mount a tap on it, then your bike could host keg parties.

    Yeah, in Philly, if you want to bring beer home, you have to go and buy it in a bar.

    I was watching "The Greatest Show On Earth - (The Story of The 1974 Giro d'Italia)". In that race, the "Water Boys" are allowed to raid any of the convenience stores on the route, and make off with whatever soft-drinks they can carry. There followed a sequence when one chap was riding along, attempting to open a bottle by trying to knock the cap off using the top of the stem as an anvil. After many unsuccessful attempts, he eventually opened the bottle with his teeth! Arrrrggggghhhhh!

    you should weld a bottle opener to a barend plug so you can pop the top while you ride.
