I'm totally in and waiting. I'll wait to PM my address until it makes its way a bit further down. I might move soon, and if the track record of the previous tries is anything, it may be a while until I get it. Would hate for someone to have the wrong address.

Is Collin2424 out of the hunt? And, yeah - I haven't seen Khatfull on here in a dog's age. Hmmm....

It's been suggested that anyone who has not been logged into BF for the past 30 days be removed from the old list. Comments or concerns?

+1 I think this should be a game for those actively involved in the community here on the forums. I think some of the folks who joined the game previously were more opportunists than active forum participants or lost interest in bicycling or C&V bikes. I have noted in the Classic and Vintage Sales forum, there are frequently people who just arrived on the forums and only have a post or two who are trying to buy stuff. Simply put, this isn't Craigslist. Just my two cents on the matter.

Sorry if I went a bit OT here.

You may WANT those that lost interest in C&V and are ready to dump some parts...

Sure - that would be great if they'd sing out :)

But then again, this is supposed to be a box of crap. If some of the hoarders here gave up the ghost and decided to get rid of everything, they'd need 10-15 dumpster-sized boxes just to get started...

Not that that's a bad thing, you understand ;)

I had a note in the mailbox that the postman tried to drop off a box. I assume its the BOC so I'll be running by the post office tomorrow to pick it up!

Good point. It could be advantageous to forum members and those in the game, but I still think active participants should be the target audience, not some newb who wants free parts and then falls off the face of the earth after absconding with a box of parts.

And while DD is not a violent guy, he has been known to affiliate himself with some folks that have a propensity for kneecapping folks that don't comply with the rules. :P

Meanwhile, running in the rain is fun. . .

I like this idea.

I also think anyone on the list who wasn't added since the inception of this 4th BOC thread, should ring in and make it known that they're still interested. If they don't check in here, they're off. My 2 cents.

+1 After all, there is a link to this thread from the old thread and the old one is now closed. Excellent idea shnibop.

I don't know if the box had already been reused or not but I decided to give the crap a new home, that box looked like my postman had drop kicked it. I took some brake levers and a shifter, and some little random clips. Threw in a Cannondale seatbag, some brakes, a lever, some chainrings and other garbage. I'll try to get it shipped out tomorrow.

Drillium Dude 04-17-12 09:10 PM

^ Perfect shot! Now that's what we're looking for :)

How about some pics of the items you picked out (see: rules)?

;)

Boy, that box is getting beat-up already!

I just PMed realestvin7. If I don't hear back by the time the thing arrives I'll be sending it to ye.

Glennfordx4 04-18-12 04:39 AM

By the time the box got to me it was looking pretty used, I used half a roll of tape just to make sure it would get to Drummerboy without dumping half of the crap out. I could have put it all in a new flat rate box but I thought we were trying to see how long the original box would last.

Don't tell us what you put in just what you take out ( with pics of course ).
