Your ruling is wise.

All hail the Crapmaster!

BOC arrived from its coast to coast journey in Reston, VA on schedule on May 25. I must say, Dean51 is a packaging genius; I will be highly challenged to close the lid on this monster parts assortment! Pics include the box as received, my haul and first attempt to repack. I was also surprised that there was plenty of non-crap in the box!Next the box is not traveling as far- a short hop over the Potomac to jeirvine in Maryland.

Hi everyone, thanks for keeping the box moving! As I mentioned before, I am adding you to the end of the list once you send. If anyone does not want to stay on the list, please let me know and I can remove you. Then you can just let me know when you want back on. Thanks!

The box is here. Teaser shot below. I will go through it this weekend and promise to get it on its merry way to noglider Monday.

Here is my take. The lights will prompt me to finally get around to building a dynohub IGH wheelset I've been meaning to do. I will try to get the box out Monday.

It's been a while but I finally had time to put my bike together some of which was built with bike o crap parts and I thought I'd share. Much thanks to @gugie who was running things when I last participated and of course the participants as well.

Yup. It went out Monday, and was delivered yesterday afternoon.

I received the box o' crap yesterday, June 6. It was 26 lbs and 3.6 oz (11.92 kg). I'll send it out tomorrow. @Lascauxcaveman, I sent you an email but haven't heard back. Please email me your address at tom@noglider.com. I have an address for you already, but I want to make sure it's still right.

There is a lot of crap in this box.

Here is a peek pic:



Here is my take. The tool is damaged, but I might be able to use it.

@crandress, I hadn't caught the auto-add policy and was unaware that I was next in line. I'll be out of town until next Wednesday, so if you don't want a slight delay on shipping, pls bump me down a notch or two at your discretion. If not, I'll move it when I can.

Dear Crapmaster — you may want to specify the auto-add policy in the first post, perhaps as one of the rules, or at least a bit more clearly than it is currently discussed. I think it’s explicit in page 8 or so in the thread. I plan to ask for you not to add me back once my turn goes, but maybe you can consider how you want to receive that info and make it a policy.
