gotta love bike tools

I recently bought the most useful bike tool yet... not cone wrenches, not a workstand, not even allen keys, but a Pedro's bottle opener. I even rigged up a cap catch bag from a Crown bag and an old spoke. I'm pretty psyched about the setup, now cracking a brew is a one hand operation with no messy cap. What can I say... you flip through the big catalogs all day at work and you start to buy stuff.

I got a pedro's bottle opener, and it doubles as a tire lever.

I love all tools. You gotta have tools. He who dies with the most tools wins.

In the event of a tie, he who has the coolest tool in the pile wins.

I was all ready to boast, but you've got a nice bottle opener. Mine's just a Park hand-held. Gets the job done, tho.

My dad says he wants to be buried with his tools.

Last night I could have used an allen wrench to adjust my brakes. Front brake was dragging against the left side. Caused my to be an hour late most of hwich was ridden in pitch black along side 1604. Not the funnest thing to do.
