I am keeping my BioPace, too. Considered installing it on my '74 Paramount's Ultegra triple crank as my knees were grumbling. Then I read up a little and it said to try stretching well before and after rides. Got a lot better quickly.

Mainly, though, I'm here for the bike computer comment. SO. TRUE. Ugh. It clutters up a lovely frame, and often the fastening solutions mean there's paint damage/irregularity.

I had been holding off on re-entering the BOC list, but the temptation of BioPace is too much to resist. Please add me to the list for my fourth go-round. I have read and will continue to abide by the rules.

I used to have computers on all my bikes, but since I switched to a Garmin, I don't use them much any more. I use a 200, which does about the same functions as a basic computer, but I can switch it between bikes without needing to calibrate.

One mans trash is another mans treasure is the basis for the BOC. My son is hard on computer, every year he needs a new one. He'll be getting this one.

That Cateye was one of my contributions- it's a wired one. I went to wireless on my bikes last year. Did notice that there was a proliferation of cyclometers on the box, tho!

Last day in Seattle. I might have enough time to sift through the bins of crap at Recycled Cycles. Yes! I miss Seattle, but not the traffic.

I got you covered. I have been moving you down the list as the box is moving a little faster than anticipated. What is the target date?

Got you moved down a few mor notches. I think that should cover it, but if you need more time to get settled, just let me know. Welcome back.

@Farenheit531- out for shipping. Let me know if you want a tracking number and I'll PM it to you.
Guy at the counter was whining a bit that it was heavy. Then he weighed it: 20lbs. I felt like telling him that at Fedex Express we carry WAY heavier packages than that. These USPS people I tell ya.

The last one I sent out was 24 or 25 lbs. and the counter guy barely batted an eye.

To the people in line ahead of me... It is fine if you take more from the box than you add. I have a ton of crap to add, some of it fairly odd.

Would love to be queued up behind . I can only imagine what oddities may ship out.

Just to note, the end of the list may fluctuate a bit so I can try to keep the list fresh for all those participating. Generally going to try to intermix new and rotating players so they don't follow, precede the same folks. Could even flip flop to make it interesting if we have no new players. Thanks everyone for your participation!

The BoC has arrived in sunny southern Arizona! And in addition to the regular-type crap it has reflective crap!

Arrival pics below, will be Wednesdayish before it's outbound, but stay tuned for my crappy haul...

Make sure you all are getting addresses of the next victim when you get the box or even when it is on the way to you to minimize delays! Lets keep the box moving along! Great job by everyone so far!!
