Kickstart a Seat Collar Bottler Opener

Swarm, a small design firm in Salt Lake are cyclists who like beer. Well that’s familiar sounding and they had this idea for a new product. Don’t know Swarm, but we’ve got much in common with bikes, beer, and making products. So Swarm decided they want to combine a seat collar with a bottle opener and then figured how much time and money it takes to bring a new product to market.

15K is more than they’d make passing the cycling cap around the pub, or likely find with a bank or investors, so they launched a Kickstarter campaign.

They’ll want to test these and I’m sure they will. A novelty seat post collar isn’t something you want to snap on your bike. I had a collar snap once and rode for miles standing up. Seat posts collars are a necessary function of a frame and when you decide to make it open bottles too, let’s hope its primary function is to hold the post.
