That's cool - but I was hoping we'd not need something like that

BTW, did you want to be added to the list?

Maybe it should be renamed " Watch Drillium Dude heard kittens"

I had to make a "special" trip to the store JUST for kitty food. Dang driver cut me off too (you know the ones that slow down and turn right across the bike lane / shoulder?). Rear brake needs more adjusting. I can't wait till my cheapo CAD2 frame shows up and I can retire this BSO crap. . . . Maybe I should have hit him and let him buy me a new new bike.

If the box doesn't get to me within a month I swear I'm going to cut up a whole NEXT full-suspension BSO and send it to the offender.

I'm curious if my crap was actually worth anything. . you know I was cleaning and found an FD mounting screw I think belongs to an FD I put in the box. . . uh oh. I guess it went from "crappy" to "spectacularly crappy".

Ha - I wouldn't worry about that; there's probably someone out there who has the mounting screw only that will appreciate that

It would be cool to map the travels of this alleged box (which I hope to receive at some point this summer!) on a google map or something so we could see what kind of crazy zig zags it makes across the country. I am not volunteering my services though ...Not enough time in the days as it is.

Alright!! We're moving right along here. Let's hope that the box of crap isn't the end result of a bran muffin and large coffee when you receive it.

Box of crap received: May 3rd, 2012

I will attempt to mail it out tomorrow, Saturday at the latest. Obligatory pics will be taken.

Boy, no one was kidding about the crap part.

BTW, I'll probably have to get a new box. This one has a hole in one side and it is kinda "squishy."

Thanks for the update - looking forward to your pics.

And you ain't kidding about the box - it seems those things are only good for about 3 or 4 mailings before they're toast

So, all the good stuff's gone?

post a pic of the box and I may be able to infer what was minused and added.

Otherwise, hole in the side, I'm glad I put all those just rolling around in baggies.

Lookee what arrived on my doorstep today. While I haven't had time to go through the box yet, I think there's some stuff in there that I can use! Tomorrow I'll take me some stuff out, put me some stuff in and try to get her sent by Wednesday, though it may be Friday since this is turning out to be a crazy week at work already. I won't bore you with the details on that...

Wow, there's some crappy crap in there, still. And, some slightly nicer crap.

I don't see the crank, though.
