The Road Popper Aug 8, 2010

You can tell that you talk too much about drinking when you get a dozen emails with the subject line “You’ll love this” only to find a link to this product. That’s the beauty of the internet. The Road Popper is, simply put, a bottle opener that attaches to your saddle rails. Here’s the low-down:

The Road Popper is a bike-mounted bottle opener that we developed for our own use and decided afterward to share. We designed it to fasten discreetly to the rails on the underside of the saddle to help keep your bike looking crisp. So far, it’s worked on all the bottle caps we’ve tried it on. Material options are bronze infused stainless steel. Finish options are plain (on the right in the photograph), matte gold, glossy gold, matte antique bronze, and glossy antique bronze. The Road Popper is not intended for alcoholic beverages. Chromoly does not condone cycling while under the influence of alcohol.

Wanna see how it works? Head over to Shape Ways.

    The snob should put this on his bike with the bottle opener on the stem so He has the front and rear covered.

    Heya Lofi.

    It is being sold thru Shapeways which is a 3D printing site. They do not stock screws/hardware (yet).
    Perhaps they could 3D print the screws too?

    It’s kinda ridiculous how fun biking while drunk is.

    So ridiculously stupid but so so great.

    Bet Outlier could make one for, oh, say, about $240.
