    Petty complaint

    The Tallboy Aluminum has a through axle....but loses the bottle opener...not sure if its the same with the LT but c'mon.


    Like I said petty. :beer:

    You don't need an opener for a flask. Just putting that out there.

    Probably better to start a new thread but....are there any features from bikes that have disappeared over the years you miss....some as petty as a bottle opener....maybe some huge tech that never caught on?

    SPD's make excellent bottle openers as well . . .
    Alcohol may lead nowhere, but it sure is the scenic route!

    Prob just the engineer in me talking, but what about a bottle opener being a great bottle opener? I didn't drop $5K+ on a bike with the qualifier that it can do what a $1 tool can to open barley-pops...

    Naysayers never apologize. Critics go to their grave thinking everyone else is wrong.

    Thanks for the pep talk. Hell here i was thinking if Obama could win a second term a whore could also be a winner even though we both "suck". You opened my eyes and i opened another bottle.

    I am gonna half to roll with the Whore on this one...flasks pack easier and no opener necessary. Plus, the times I have portaged beer with me on a ride it was canned.
