Received the BOC today. Here's what teased me when I opened it:

(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:


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.

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 !!!
