    ever step on a broken bottle at the beach? drove over one leaving a concert and blow a tire? i would be happy if all beer came in cans. Than you stick your tire lever /flip flop bottle opener where the sun dont shine.

    Oh sure, first they take away our long lived wheel size, then they take away our old world frame geometry, now you want to take away our bottle openers? Whatís next, our first born?

    Though you'd think cans are a better choice, I've never had a bottle leak and fill up my pack with beer. Happened enough times with cans that I avoid bringing them along if possible. Maybe sticking them in a coozie or something would help protect them, but being a man, I don't own any.

    Yeti makes a waist pack you could try- it will keep your beer cold and foam-free for two days, and it's only $1,599.00

    I love having a can of Irish Death at the top of a long climb. It seems to give a good boost of energy for the descent.

    Waist pack? No can do.

    Pack beer is pack beer. Bottle, can, warm, or cold, I'll find a way to open it and enjoy it. A vista or riverside is nice but not mandatory. Lets not get carried away here folks.

    I like to think of them as things built into bottle openers.

    It's healed up nice and looks pretty now though.
    You ought to rethink that, It's the qualities of the beer/ale which provided for the excelent healing.

    same way you use a lighter to open a bottle, you can do the same w/ disposable chop sticks. On the trails, plenty of small branches avail.

    I rode my fixed gear today and forgot my nut wrench. It has a bottle opener but I had neither a flat nor a bottle to open.

    I blew out my flip-flop and stepped on a pop top.

    lol

    It's rare that I'm healing from anything although less rare that I'm enjoying a good beer. This ratio works fine for my threshold of excitement. Just a bit embarrassing my crash happened to "coincide" with a really good beer. I think I downed it a bit too fast.

    I'm thinking about starting a gofund me to develop a wedding ring that has a mountain bike attached to it. Feel free to start PMing me some cash.

    If they have to cut off your finger, are you going to save it and make fajitas for your friends?

    That is going to be a skimpy plate of fajitas. Have you seen Scott's fingers? They put Trump's Vienna sausages to shame.

    Disposable chopsticks are pretty much last on the list of things I have lying around nearby.

    Sounds hellish were that to happen. I hope the Doc takes off the correct finger though. That could suck too !!

    HINT- Don't tell them it's that tungsten carbide and I'll bet the power of positive thinking will get them thru it unless they are just lazy. A finger would be the quick and easy!

    I see that as a crash you earned though.
    Reasoning beer as a contributing cause just makes me feel stoopid.

    They don't have hammers in the ER? Easy to shatter TC.
