Looks like some good crap - I especially would have snagged that Cuissi bottle cage

Finally here in WA for a few weeks, so I have connectivity and will be adding updates to page one regularly until I head back around the 25th of July.

Again, for those that want to join the queue: please check into the thread and make your intentions known publicly vice via PM - oh, and read up on the rules contained in Post 1/Page 1 so you know the expectations. Thanks!

And read about the epic fails and the collective stink eye aimed in the direction of those few people who think it's fine to break the rules. It's not nice to mess with a bunch of aging C&V types!

I just went back and did this, and then read some more, just for my own entertainment, and I'm left with this one question. Why isn't it being called 'Box O Crap Game Take 5. That's Right 5'?

It would be higher than 5, and we've grown lazy.

In particular, the thread name would have to be changed (nobody would be able to find it) or a new thread created. Way too much work on either count.

It was delayed; I'm in the process of purchasing a house and it ate up what little free time I had last week.

The box found its way to the post office on Saturday. I put a couple special goodies in there by way of apology.

Shoota: you've got it

Nice to see the box is moving right along - I'm off to Page One/Post One to update progress once again! A labor of love, no doubt...

My haul!



Everything is going on my daily drop bar mtb commuter. Can't wait to get a solid set of cantis on it!

Added a few nice bits that I hope go to a good home. BoC went out today at 4:45 en route to GordoTrek!

No kidding, right? That saddle looks pretty un-crappy, too!

Who knows, though - you pays your chances, you rolls your dice...
