Wow! I feel privileged to be the first recipient after the B-Day! Looking forward to seeing it!

I have some stuff I would like to add to that box. Who's the keeper of the list, now? how do I get my name on it?

You just gotta wait for DD to be settled again, but you're already as good as added.

Oh man, I'm a long ways off. Figures I just picked up a vintage bike and need a stem, and I've been ignoring the quill stems in the box every time I've had it!

I had a similar feeling when I needed a quill to threadless stem adapter.. can't tell you how many I've passed on in the box

At least cheap used quill stems abound round these parts. Oh, and I forgot to say thank you for the decals, I got em in the mail a while back

o.O Ummmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm then you have a very cool decal angel! Since this is my first day back at where I could send them from! Heck I was trying to think what I could shove in there to make it a nice bonus for being so patient. So is this a joke? Planning to go by the post office in a couple hours so lmk please.

Huh, they are definitely here. So who sent me the decals, then?!

Yeah, I'd like to thank you whoever you are.

awfulwaffle 03-31-14 10:03 AM

As would I! Whoever you be (I'm thinkin one of the two gentlemen who sent me the box in earlier rounds), thank you for taking the time out of your day!

@drilliumdude can I ask to be removed? New kiddo on the way and we are eyeballing moving so I don't want to get caught up with that and delay the box leaving my possession.

Sorry to hear you're leaving the game, but also, congratulations! I'm sure DD will make this official, but I would have been the one shipping the box to you, I'll pass it along to Lumpydog instead.

Drillium Dude 03-31-14 02:39 PM

Rudi: you've been added to the fun.

Mike: do you need me to put in a placeholder, perhaps? We could do that. For now, I'll move you off the list, but if you want to get back in just let me know and I'll do my best to slot you in somewhere other than the bottom :)

BOC arrived! Quick view indicates parts of value! Box looks good for one more shipment.

I know! I had a hard time leaving that one in the box, but had to admit I don't have a bike for it. Milremo? Sant? Fuji? Some pretty names buried in that crap.

SJX426 04-03-14 06:16 AM

LOL including Simplex, and LOOK pedals. I had no idea how easily Look pedals are to obtain. They are on CL frequrently around here.

Taking tomorrow off so will go through the box and try to send it on.

DD, I'll let you know! And much appreciated, I was hoping to have some of the parts I can't use sent on their way to better, and more useful pastures, so maybe later this summer I'll be more settled to get back in on this.

lumpydog 04-04-14 10:56 PM

Looks like some great stuff in the box! Already window shopping;)

SJX426 04-07-14 07:08 AM

Here is what I took. Stuffed the box and was not able to get all that I wanted to add. Sent on Saturday. Really needed the hubs, Thanks! The pedals are going on the Red Burley Duet.

^ You'll want to make sure you re-lube that silver hub. I took it apart to inspect it and sorta clean it, but didn't put any grease in it.

Nice haul! What are those shifters?

SJX426 04-07-14 12:19 PM

Sante. Going on my daughters build unless something better shows up.
@Lascauxcaveman; I need the freewheel portion to replace the one on my Rockhopper that is going bad. Will save the rest for the next go around when I am ready.

BOC arrived yesterday, will have some time to get into it tonight. A preliminary peek shows one or two things I could make use of, the trick will be cramming it with stuff I's like to shed.

Attempts to post a pic have been fruitless, keep getting a dialog that the image is too large, even when posting from an external site.
but that's it here, posted to my FB bikedork page:

Went thru the box. The look pedals that were passed over are french threaded, can def use those, thanks also for the Mafac "ville" levers. I have yokes for them somewhere.
Will cram some stuff in there and ship it off on Saturday.

Sorry, no pics. Still getting the "image too large" dialog, no matter how much I reduce the file size. It's a mystery, I blame Time Warner Cable.
