    Received the BOC today. Here's what teased me when I opened it:
    BF BOC.jpg
    (I still haven't a clue what the stick with the pad is. Probably goes to some type of equipment I don't have.)

    And here's what I'm keeping:
    BF BOC 2.jpg

    52T Campy chainring
    Grips
    Sealed bottom bracket
    Origin 8 road stem

    I'll find some more craps to put in it over the weekend and it will go off to Shadoman early next week. I'll try to add something a little different from what is already there.

    The stick with the pad is a rim polisher.

    Is that just a scouring pad glued to a paint stirrer than someone McGyver'd themself or an actual commercial product?

    It's now on the way to Shadoman. The weight should elicit some squeals of joy from the mailroom staff.

    If a skinsuit gets in there, I think we'd need to change the rules so that EVERYONE who received the box should have to pose in it...

    Being an avid thrift shop/estate sale addict, I have to say, there's nothing more fun than looking through other people's crap !

    One man's crap is another man's good 5hit, Man !!!!

    I'll be rejoining the list at a later date to do it again !!!
