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.

Things You'll Need for Installation (not included with purchase)

2 - 3/8” long #6 flat head (countersunk) screws
2 - Nylon locknuts
1 - Screwdriver
1 - Needle nose pliers

Bike Requirements

Conventional bike saddle. If you're not sure if your seat is standard or not, give it a measure. The rails should be 7 mm's (0.275 inch) in diameter and roughly 44mm's (1.73 inch) apart.

At least 228mm's (9”) of space between the underside of your seat and your tire.

9mm's (3/8”) of open rail behind where the seat attaches to the seat post.

*Because this product is fabricated to order it is more expensive that it would be under normal manufacturing conditions. For this same reason it takes about 14 working days to arrive. The cost of shipping (via UPS) is included in the list price. Please note that duties and taxes may be applied to your order when it enters your country.

dumb idea, you'll spill beverages on the back of your bike. tattoos indicate alcoholism and hard drug use.

My bike came pre-fitted with bottle opener :-) turns out that most SE fixed gear bikes have this. Nice design though!
