    SPD's and beer

    Holy crap! Did you know you can open a beer bottle with SPD pedals? It was in this months issue of Mountain Bike. I can make my camelback 50 grams lighter now.

    Why didn't anyone tell me?

    50 grams saved on the bottle opener but how much gained in all the extra beer you're going to be carrying now?

    Apparently you can also just use the spokes of a spinning wheel as well.
    It really sends the cap and makes a cool sound.

    There you go. The next time someone asks which is better , CB, TimeAttack or SPD, tell them SPD due to this built in feature.

    Be a man and open it with your teeth, problem solved. No but seriously if you think about leverage and put your mind to it you can open a beer bottle with just about anything. You ever seen someone open a beer with a piece of paper?

    A flat rock or tire tool works as well.

    Take one newbie on SPD's, one cold Arrogant Bastahd on an empty stomach, one 20 minute hog fat chewing session, and then one lap around the paved parking lot, and you will end up with one Sore Bastard. Been there, Done that.
