Take a look at your bike and you’ll think it’s fairly simple. Not a ton of parts, easy to understand design, overall nothing that needs delving into. After that, pick up a copy of The Bike Deconstructed: A Grand Tour of the Modern Bicycle and rethink your two-wheeled ride. Richard Hallett tears some bikes apart to give you a new appreciation of the some 200 parts working together when you’re pedaling away. The book is loaded with images, diagrams, and easy to digest information on why the bicycle is a modern marvel. You’ll no longer take your bike for granted.
The Throttle Bottle Opener is a pint-sized beer popper that’s more clever than you realize. While its compact size make it ideal for tossing on a keyring, its miniscule build is only one of the benefits here. Outfitted with a powerful rare earth magnet, each Throttle Bottle Opener easily finds its way to your bottle’s cap. Not only that, you can keep it on the fridge so it’s on hand whenever you pull out a cold one. Then, use it with one hand to open that bottle. Clever, tiny, and incredibly useful.
