BOC has arrived...

Came home from work to find the BOC in my living room Drillium Dude has raised the level at which things are called crap though. I'd call this stuff "pretty good junk" and that might not give it enough credit! Don't worry, I'll be sure to add some craptastic stuff and bring the quality level back down a little .

I pulled out a couple things for my self of course: I couldn't resist the carbon saddle and Superleggeri pedals. DD also included a pair of clips for the Chorus pedals I picked up at the Swap we went to a couple weekends ago.

Sillygolem has not responed to my PM or posted on the forum since Nov and so I must assume he's MIA for the time being. Looks like Glennfordx4 is up next (got your PM w/address). I already had some crap picked out to put in the old BOC and I'll be picking through my "stash" tomorrow and see if I can't fill this box. Should be in the mail in the next month or so . JK, I'll post another pic at the post office in the next day or two.

-Andy

Sure - you have been added

Andycapp: glad to see the box arrived so quickly - and you found some goodies already, particularly the clips I put in especially for you. I figured you might like that saddle, too. I got that on FSOT, but it was just too damned hard and had nothing like the flex of my Flite Evolution. Glad it found a new home

To make things easier, I have removed sillygolem from the list and you are now sending to Glennfordx4.

Don't worry, folks - there's plenty more good stuff in there! Looks like Andy only just scratched the surface...

Nice work guys! I'm very glad to see this thing in play again, for sure. Because you got this thing in play again, your bike karma has risen significantly!

^ I guess I'd better head out and visit some garage sales this weekend - might find a Confente for $50

Seriously, though, I had some stuff to get rid of and all the swap meets are over with for this year; what better way to get shut of it, right?

Over? We still have this one that I know of. It's right in my 'backyard' so I'll be checking it out.

Frantik, I'm glad you took my cantilever brake from the old box before it got lost. That was by far the best thing I put in, so I'm glad it didn't go to waste.

Cool, I'm after Glenfordx4.

So how about an exploded view of the box. Just curious what all is in it.

I think that DD's idea is that we don't get to know what's all in it, just what gets taken out and maybe a little bit about what's in it. To keep the surprise factor going.
