I'm a weight weenie, and therefore use cans instead of bottles, anyway.

Your bike already has 4 built-in openers-the dropouts. You didn't see the resemblance?

You may not be able to afford a Richard Sachs frame, but his bottle openers are only $22.

First of all, these Sachs bottle openers are not truly custom. In fact, if you look at his web site carefully you'll notice that he makes only ONE size bottle opener. What's up with that? I have more sizing choices in bottle openers buying off the rack at the Safeway.

Second, although the devotees swear otherwise, it is a bunch of mystical hogwash to state that Sachs can fit you to a bottle opener that will enable you to open a beer faster than you can with a 1 buck church-key opener (which will have zero weld (or brazing) imperfections, as it will have zero welds). The church-key is the result of ages of design evolution and is rarely improved upon by new-fangled tinkering. Go retro.

I'll give him this: it's more comfortable than using your teeth.

The new version has a bottle opener on the rear dropout.

... the public perception of bikes generally tends towards toys... and since they're accessed by folks of varied abilities, drivers sigh could make the same claims against us (in my area, you'll see several near misses a day during warm weather).

I guess I'd rather see a united front... society against dumb drivers!

Be the bike.
