The box has landed in sunny Wisconsin!
@RaleighSport was right, this thing is the lightest I've seen (felt?) it be!

A few teaser shots, as I'll be digging through it and deciding what to take/add tomorrow after work:

I was torturing myself looking at the local CL today - there was a guy selling six half-decent frames for $100. It made me wonder, has anyone attempted to build most of a bike out of a single round of BOC? I see all the usual bits in there. Clearly not frame, fork, or rim, but photos have shown nearly everything else. Might be a lark to try it.

Update for those eagerly awaiting the box: I've been in touch with RaleighSport, who seems to have a few extra bits that should be in the box. Currently waiting for those to arrive so I can toss em in before sending the box on its way.

Just so's everyone knows: I'm not dead, for one, and for another, I'm in the loop regarding the delay and we'll be back on point shortly. Since the delay will have a positive knock-on effect, no problems here. Personally, since I've retired I have a whole new perspective on the meaning of patience

Don't worry: the Box has NOT gone south again!

Secondary box is deployed and hopefully will catch up with the true BoC ASAP, as it turns out there were only two items I would consider as losses from the box that I had forgotten to put in.

Delay should be over in a few days, I apologize to everyone for this minor setback but on the positive side a lot of good stuff is migrating into the box that wouldn't have otherwise.

As we say, craps away.

Yes. Unfortunately the build didn't work out so well, I'll see if I still have pics of that bike somewhere...

Just an FYI: @rotharpunc has requested that I move on to the next person down the list, so the box will be going to @nuron as soon as I get it.

Erm.. shouldn't you look through the fresh pile before you pack the two boxes together? You might want something...

Well of course, that was my intention. I just meant that I'll look super fast Suppose it might take me a bit of time to make everything fit, but I shall be swift as possible about it.

Was going to say add me to the list again, but I see a couple of pages back that the post ante has been upped to 150. Guess I'm waiting for a bit:-)

Seems like a while since @RaleighSport was going to send those few items to @awfulwaffle. Any updates? Is the BOC back on track?

Entirely my fault gentlemen! I did indeed get the second package off to the Waffle, and discovered I boneheaded yet again.. there were a few items that absolutely need to catch up with the boc that didn't get put in. Then my work and class schedule EXPLODED! The good news is the term paper is turned in and I'll get the next and last set of crap off to Awfulwaffle, again any anger hostility etc, please direct at me as this is my bad.

Ah, I was just thinking I should post another update or something, but it looks like @RaleighSport relayed everything already. The contents of the box are neatly sorted by item type, with the incomplete parts waiting for the final bits to get here. Everything will be sent out within a day of my receiving the rest of the stuff.

Touching base real quick here, final package is off to Mr Waffle as of today I was stalling as I was trying to find some hardware to make a few pieces that were already in the box fully functional. I said to heck with it today and just added some more "nice" stuff and sent it off. BoC entering rotation shortly. Sorry again all for the delays.
