Instaled

Advertised as: Mountain biking and beer go together hand-in-hand. The WiseCracker bottle opener is your key to opening pure liquid enjoyment after any ride. No need to fumble around looking for your keychain opener…just use the opener that’s clamped onto your bike!

Installation of the WiseCracker took less than a minute. Simply remove the seat post from the bike and slide the WiseCracker in place then tighten.

Just like what Ahrens Bicycle said “mountain biking and beer go together hand-in-handâ€?. There’s nothing more relaxing than a good ride and a great beer to follow. Ahrens Bicycle’s WiseCracker simplifies this process. It’s a great addition to my bike. It’s a shame this feature doesn’t come standard on all mountain bikes.

cold one

If you love to ride and love beer just as much as I do, you have to get Ahrens Bicycle’s WiseCracker. Having the convenience of a bottle opener on your rig is phenomenon. Needless to say, the WiseCracker would be staying on my bike for good.

Strengths:
The hard black anodized finish did not crack or chip during the entire testing period.
Extremely light
Affordable
Does not get in your way
Fits perfectly underneath your saddle bag

Weaknesses:
There is one major weakness with the WiseCracker. I found myself buying more beers more often. Other than that, it’s flawless.
