How to open a bottle with your bike?

Notices
Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

he never opened it with the stem. He tried, but the stem doesn't have a sharp enough edge on it to do that. He just uses his teeth.

That was an awesome video though. That looked like champagne they were passing around at one point.

Lol, that's funny. That must be heavy lugging around 5 glass bottles. I like that they share, shows that competition doesn't involve hate of other riders.

I'd be afraid of that accidentally turning the handlebar resulting in a dead me.

Hell, I have a hard enough time taking arm warmers off while moving because I end up shifting my weight around a bit.

Why would anyone want to skip to it.

On the way, there are so many things to note, like wtf do we need power bars for?

Definitely no small feat, but it is worth it to remember that those rigs were steel and had a much more slack geometry making them track very well with little to no rider input. I am always amazed at how smooth older steelies ride when I jump back on them. Ride no-handed for days.
