A thread on another site inspired me to photograph my two keyring bottle openers. Here they are. The second photo is the other side of the Yeti opener.

Not especially retro...

...but I've just ordered one and it's a nice complement to my Sola.

Thanks for kicking this one back to the top.

I felt a little sorry for the kid who gave me this opener at the recent Interbike show. I mean, it's cool, although it doesn't go on a keyring, but I had to drag out the Campy and Yeti openers above and show him that I was rarely denied entry to a beer bottle.

Nice! Though I'd avoid carrying it in public as it looks like it doubles up as a knuckle-duster! :?

Moots, along with beer glasses, wine glasses, belt buckles, travel mugs(!), ground coffee(!!) and dog collars(!!!), do a nice keyring too....

Those sandals are cool but there's always the risk of opening a beer having just stepped in dogsh*t! :?

Saw a custom rack-mount in one of the recent bike show photos (can't seem to find it now) made especially for carrying 12 beer bottles and with a built in bottle opener.

I'm glad that people are still concentrating on the more important aspects of cycling... :wink:
