If your idea of a nightmare is being on a bicycle outing with a bottle and no way to open it, a startup called NubNub has your back. Their “Pub-Nub” handlebar-mounted bottle opener is machined from T6061 aluminum, available in matte gray and matte black and will reportedly fit to almost any bike – ensuring that you will never again have to rely solely on beverages in cans or with twist tops.
It started with a cold beer, a bike ride, and “Boy, it would be nice to have a bottle opener.” Maker Todd Lenig realized his cycling multi-tool had screwdrivers, spoke wrenches, and quick fixes galore… But it lacked the ultimate gadget for recreational riders — a bike-mounted bottle opener.
“I thought, ‘Why not give it a shot?’ Now is as good a time as any,” Lenig said.
Beer and bike riding. Two great things that (almost) go great together.
NubNub is also in the process of patenting an upgrade called the “ClubNub” as well as a bike-mounted multi-tool.
