Time for an update folks! I showed up from work today to find the last box from @RaleighSport . Added my contribution and got everything packed up, as usual this thing is full to the brim.

Here's what I took:









Unfortunately, the post office was closed by the time I got home today. Here's the box, all strapped to biketruck and ready to begin its voyage back to the west coast and @nuron 's house tomorrow morning:

The box is off to @nuron ! I really liked @BluesDaddy 's idea of taking a photo of the box on a bike near a landmark, so I did it too!

Here's the box enjoying a nice view of Lake Michigan:



And here it is being cultured at the Milwaukee Art Museum:





Oddly enough, I found the handling to be more stable with the box on the back of the bike! Maybe it's because my frame is way shorter than BluesDaddy's , but when riding no handed I couldn't get the bike to wobble if I tried (well, I could, but it was way more difficult than when I was heading home).

Ohhh the threads coming back to life. Thank goodness, I was afraid I might have killed it. So Mr Waffle, looking better than it has in ages? (The box)

@RaleighSport Absolutely, I actually had to pick what I wanted. Last time, the only thing for me was some headset bearings I've added some nice goodies, let's hope the box remains this way!

Box sent to ramalalag. I didn't see anything worthwhile at the moment so I didn't take anything and just resent it. Please remove my name from the BoC for now.

Everyone! Box arrived today! Will post photos later.

I don't have time to mess with it until tomorrow later, will be at the college all day. Should send it off around Friday.

You shouldn't resent it, it didn't do it to you on purpose.

I guess we all resent the box, if we're playing the game right.

The lineup is quite a bit shorter than usual to boot, good fortune for you I suppose. DD will amend the official list sooner or later, but obviously you've been tallied on mine.

DD or RS, can you add me to the list again? My wife thinks I'm mildly crazy too... Trying to keep up the illusion.

Hi folks,
I received the BOC this evening. I'll get busy with pics asap. Though it has some beautiful artwork on the box, it may need to be swapped for a new one. I'll see how it goes. At first glance it is living up to it's name...

Not much of a haul for me on this round (needed a set of levers for a single-speed project). The pickens are pretty thin in the box. I appreciate the game, but the usefulness of items in the box is pretty questionable. It'll be on it's way soon. (Sorry that was whiney wasn't it?)

Judging by your sig line... I can see perhaps why the BoC would not be your cup of tea. Glad those 105's got a home, I always wanted to reuse them but prefer brifters and didn't feel like buying new hoods.

Yes I always grab these spring loaded levers whenever I come across them. I am usually not too picky when it come to bike parts and I do have several bikes that can use many things in the box, but that is some crappy crap... I'm still glad I'm in the game.
