Bikes and beer have a magical relationship. Wherever you find one, the other is likely nearby. Sometimes they combine and turn into a metaphorical Megazord of awesomeness. This bike rim bottle opener is one of those combinations!
In this Instructable, I demonstrate how I made 14 bottle openers out of a bicycle rim, spokes and chain links. Since the process of making one of these bottle openers means destroying a rim, you might as well make several of them because they make awesome gifts! Let me know what you think in the comments section.
You could just cut up a rim and call it a day. However, extra style points are earned by reusing a chain link and a spoke to create a hook to hang the bespoke tool on your bar/workbench/wherever. The process of installing the chain link on the rim was a serious challenge, but in the end I think it adds tons of style/character and was well worth it.
