What's Your Favorite Tool & Bike Part to Open a Beer?

Edited Date/Time 6/22/2017 11:16am
Bikes and beer go together pretty well I think. But sometimes you forget your bottle opener on the trail... and that sucks. Post up some different ways you've figured out how to pop open a cold one without using a bottle opener.

Here's four we've used for a while... and a couple of ideas that didn't really work out.

The trusty SPD bottle opener:



Chainring bottle opener:



Tire lever bottle opener:



14mm open end wrench:



Things that didn't work...

Using the side-knobs of a spinning tire:



Anywhere on the seat // seatpost:



The rear axle QR:

I dig the spoke trick, just watch your eyes as illustrated by Hans Rey:

We were too scared to try the spoke method... only two beers each to get those photos. Still a good excuse to have a couple before 5pm.

I run Time pedals and it's a battle compared to SPD's.

SHOTGUN... or a BIG ROCK!
.
Unfortunately, I cannot get through a whole bottle/can/glass of beer before it actually just starts tasting bad!
FruckedUp taste buds? My Father's fault? My Mother's? Damn them all!
.
So I gave up drinking... seeing as how it's more frustrating and wasteful stopping halfway through the effort (that's what she said!)... than not starting at all!
.
So I sit there and make loud noises about how, "...GREAT THIS ROOT/GINGER BEER IS! WOW, IS THIS GOOD! YOU GUYS DON'T KNOW WHAT YOU'RE MISSING! Wanna try some? Get your own straw though... I don't like coodies!" Wink

Definitely the SPD pedal. Even though I ride flats, there is always someone else's bike leaned up near by that I can use. And that way, theirs is the one to get covered in beer!
