And here is my take:

A nifty little bottle opener someone made out of piece of rim!

The box was a little full, so I may need to get creative in my repack. Probably won't go out until Wednesday while I sort things out.

I almost ordered a 26T chainring on Friday and decided to wait. Glad I did. The brakes and the pump holder are gravy on top.

Hi everyone, zammykoo needed to bow out for this next round, so @wschruba is up next. Please get your address to @2cam16

I know last minute things are going to come up, but if at all possible, let us know right away so we can adjust the list accordingly. Thanks!
