Did any European crap make it in? (I just like to feel involved... )

I put in a French-threaded headset when it passed my way. Does that count? Many, many (some might say too many ) Delrin Simplex derailleurs have made their way into the box over the several iterations.

It looks like the box has picked up speed. I had estimated late summer, now I am only a few spots away. I'd better go get my crap ready.

One of the spoils from the box o' crap for me is a 110mm BCD chainring with 54 teeth. I'll see if I can get it to work on our tandem bike. I want a higher top gear. The current rings are 28/38/48, so the 54T may not work. If it does work, I'll say I got my money's worth!

Close to three months after it left me for it maiden voyage in BOC Series Seven, the box arrived back at my door! Here is the initial peek:

Here is my take. Just what I needed for one of my current projects where I had just realized the 6 speed was not going to work...

I was delayed a day, but the box was shipped out yesterday. On its way to @Lascauxcaveman !

Tracking says it arrived on the 21st, so hopefully we will get an update soon! I have no worries about the caveman...

Yah, I got it Friday I think. At least that's when I first noticed it. Crazy busy at work and social life right now...

Here's the peek-a-boo, although I probably could have just copy/pasted someone else's pics for that, or one of my previous pics . Lots of pretty cool crap in there, which makes it harder to choose, of course! I'll get it back on the road Thursday, most likely. Neal has sent me his address, so we're in touch.

OK, I LIED.

The box went out a day earlier than I thought it would. Neal has been PMed a tracking link and the crap flows on. Five day turn around.

A big haul this time, but there is plenty of interesting, quality crap still rattling around in there, some of which came from my own bins. Here's what I took:

BOC arrived yesterday. The metal liner is quite impressive:

My haul:

Kind of a lot, yes, but I wanted to make room for more interesting crap to pass along. Box should go out to 2cam16 on Monday.

I want to thank you for removing all those cranks. It was weird how many there were. I guess many of us are awash in cranks lately.

I meant to insert some cat treats when it came through here. But I don't have a cat or even a dog any more. Someone please put some cat treats in, because it's so funny when cats go rushing up to bike crap.

I thought about putting one of our cats in (likely the ancient one with advanced kidney disease), but there wasn't room.

Lucky it wouldn't fit. That would serve as a cat repellent, probably.

I'd like it if I opened the BOC and found one of your Papillons in it. Our dog is a moron. Your's is an Einstein by comparison.

BOC in transit, ready to head back to the west coast.


BOC in transit

NB, 2cam16, the PO gave me a hard time because I wasn't able to make the top flaps meet (there's about an inch of space between the two edges as you can see in the pic). I guess I put too much crap in there!

Sorry guys. Just got back from a long week. Wasn't expecting the box to land while I was gone but it arrived yesterday. Will open it up tomorrow and send it out Monday.
