Anyone need wheel shipping boxes?

My new PSIMet wheels arrived today! Spoke count 20/24. Alchemy hubs, Kinlin XR-270 rims, CXRay spokes. They weighed in with rim tape at about 1450gms, actual weight. 344gms lighter than the Bontrager RaceXLights that they replaced. That's something like 12 ounces. My bike should now weigh in just over 16 lbs.

Back to the point of this post. I now have 2 cardboard boxes for wheel shipping. Anyone need 'em?

Oh great! Secret weapons for Sunday. Can't wait!!! We both have new bikes (yours trumping mine by a couple of fathoms). The only thing I have to brag about is my cyclocross bike that is enroute via UPS. Yippee!

Seriously ridiculous ride you now have Joel. :thumbsup:

Oh, and no... No need for boxes. Carry on! Hahaha!

Joel, I'll grab them. I can take them apart and get them flat. When I want a box, they are never available.
We are going to ride the lake tomorrow. How about you guys?

We're going to do a loop including Malcolm Dixon, Deer Valley, Starbuck, Cambridge, Bass Lake, Serrano, Wilson, Empire Ranch, to Iron Point. It's going to be a bit hot for me to want to tackle Old Foresthill. The sun bouncing off the wall to the left really makes it hot. And I'm prone to heat exhaustion.

We can hook up during the week sometime and I'll get you the wheel boxes.
