    Yeah me too, the box isn't nearly as cruddy ATM as when I normally see it.

    A pie plate or two.. some weinnmans with turkey arms... etc. I'll take a pic of the pile and let anyone who want the stuff have first crack before I haul it to the coop.

    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.

    About to be much much much fuller...

    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:-)
