Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

You can open a bottle with anything. My favorite party trick is opening bottles with rocks, that's how I sup girls.

Yeah that's cool and all - especially because if you have to open a beer bottle it likely means you're not drinking s*** beer. But I just have a bottle opener on my keychain, so meh.

Someone should make a bottle opener with a bottle opener attached to it. Ultimate coolness.

My girlfriend sups girls by opening them with her teeth...

also I am sad to see a less nice copy of the trixie tool, which can be made into a chain whip too.
