I hope everyone had a great Easter, the BOC had landed Sat afternoon but I was in no condition to deal with it until yesterday ( My back is out) and I picked out a couple goodies that are going to go to good use with some of my up coming projects. I was able to almost double the weight of the box with some of the Crap I put in so the box is now filled with some useful crap. It will be hitting the post office in a few hours and on to Drummerboy.
This is what I Kept and can use, 144 chainring for a 144 crank I have that I needed a ring for to become a SS crankset I have plans for, a 25.4 seat post w/zero setback for my DB Serrento I will be putting together soon, a close ratio 5spd FW that I want to use on the same bike I am going to use the 144 crankset on and a aluminum mount for a rack I have that is missing a clamp, oh and a Suntour RD mounting bolt I needed for a V Luxe GT. I also kept a 22.2 hinged cruiser/ATB stem stem for a double clamp set of bars I wanted to use
please put me on here, i have tons of crap that i would love to send along!!
Nice, I'm glad you have a use for that stem and post. They've been bouncing around my shed with no use for a long time. Too nice to toss but no need for them either. I was pretty tempted on that chainring just for coolness factor, but I don't have a 144 crank. Any idea what the V stands for?
I'll be patiently waiting.
Ok who's next? I have a box of crap that needs someones name on it.
PM me your address please.
Check page 1, looks like "Russd32" is next. Send him a PM. But first, lets see some pics
I took some Campy fd's, some decent old squares, and some bar tape.
Perhaps we should re-think the list; it might be time to simply hold the box for a day, put the word out that if you're interested speak up or you will be passed up!
There are currently members on the list that I've not seen much from, so they may be on to other projects or whatever. That's absolutely fine - no problem.
If you are on the list, please contact the next person down on the list ASAP. Don't wait - the box is moving along pretty quickly and it appears that the only thing that's going to slow it down is determining the address/playing-status of the next person on the list.
Come on, everyone; don't force the game to have to begin all over again.
Drummerboy1975: hold the box for 24 hours. If you don't get an answer back from Russ32 by then, PM the next on the list.
And, sorry to say this, but if you can't get ahold of the next person on the list after that, I give up. I will erase the list in the first post and open it up on a first-come, first served basis based on posts to this thread. That way we'll all know who's still in and who's out.
Fingers crossed and all that
Sorry, I haven't been online for a bit. Just PM'd my address so we should be good to go. I've got some crap sitting here ready to go in the box.
Well, I'm interested, but I need to see how many posts I have. (I suspect I'm still < 50 - post count, not age ...)
Edit. Well what do you know. I've almost posted my age!
Okay, add me to the list.
^ Added - welcome
I am here. Thanks for the PM. . . I thought this thing died-ed-ed.
I still have khatfulls address, but I guess he's not after me in the list anymore. . . Collin2424 is
"Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize"
"So I do not run like someone who doesn't run toward the finish line. I do not fight like a boxer who hits nothing but air."
"And let us run with endurance the race God has set before us."
"I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith."
Does the last in line get to keep the BOC or does he have to start a new thread?
BOC mailed at 3:15pm today.
damn this thing is really moving! great job keeping things going DD!
And please - next recipient shoot a pic of the box opened showing the contents as-found - but not all spread out. Sort of a teaser for the next on the list
