Jingle Bells WiseCracker Style December 08 2014

When you're trying to get your company going your kids are often curious about what is going on. Mike and I are both fathers of young children. Sometimes they want to figure out how they can get involved and help. My daughter Nora loves her carols and enjoyed the "Batman Smells" version of Jingle Bells:

Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas!

Team CoreCo fatbike racer Jeff Herrera Interview November 19 2014

One of our new WiseCracker custom opener customers is Team CoreCo, a fatbike team out of Costa Rica. Their captain, Jeff Herrera, won the fatbike division of La Ruta De Los Conquistadores on a sweet Borealis Yampa. It just happens to also be outfitted with a nice bottle opener as well.

At 2:50 he points out "the most important element" of his bike is the WiseCracker!

Triple In Development October 30 2014

After the success of the double-headed Twinduro and inspired by the big win by the San Francisco Giants, I decided to start putting together a design for the 3-headed bottle opener.

Twinduro in development June 18 2014

Double your pleasure - two beers are better than one! Perfect for double-fisting after your ride or opening a beer for yourself and that special someone you meet on the trail. The WiseCracker TwinDuro titanium bottle openers have arrived. Our new online store is coming soon, in the meantime PM me if you want one since many are already spoken for...

Full article here: We Noticed
You don't have to be a wise cracker to appreciate this bottle opener from Ahrens Bicycles that fits on a variety of rides. Available in selected colors, stainless steel and titanium, one would think that you can find an offering that suits your personal taste and bike theme. We could also suggest a beer carrier appropriate for your bike but shall keep that to ourselves for another edition of What We Have Noticed. We however have not inquired with USAT and WTC to see if they are race approved.
