Crapsters stand up and get in line for keeping the crap moving. Smiles, MH

Bumping this to recruit new "Crapateers" only one person left in the waiting line. Smiles, MH

It took a week to get to the box, but I got to it! I think I spent about four hours sorting, deciding, choosing, and repacking the durn thing. Believe it or not, most of the time was spent sorting; I’m a bit OCD.

As it arrived (with paperwork separate).https://cimg7.ibsrv.net/gimg/bikefor...3d78d3623.jpeg

The take:
https://cimg0.ibsrv.net/gimg/bikefor...c68e70d9b.jpeg
An excellent haul this time. As you can see I removed some non-C/V stuff… because I need it! The pads couldn’t have been better timed, I literally need to replace a set now. I will be building a wheel set with center lock rotors, too, and the tool will be perfect for the torque wrench.

The toe straps are always useful with bikes, and I love the rubbery feel. I always seem to need a RD cable tension adjustment screw. And the 8mm nylock nut is great for racks, lights, whatever. And I always seem to need cable guides too.

The 135-spaced fork holder will become part of a bike rack in my ‘87 Land Cruiser for my fat bike that uses a 135 QR fork. Perfect!

My garage fridge is much improved with all the stickers and the Trek head badge. I currently have five Treks in the garage…

The box is off to @bwilli88 tomorrow! It should be there… someday. Three-day shipping is apparently no longer a thing with flat rate boxes that weigh just a hair under 35#. :twitchy:

PS - a sad thing occurred with the plastic shield… it didn’t make it.

PPS - I removed some stuff that has been in there for a looong time, duplicate stuff, borked stuff, non-bike stuff, and made nearly direct replacements with un-borked stuff (except for one thing, it’s only missing a piece) and some other different bike stuff.

PPPS - if anybody needs a right SR SP-155 pedal, I’m happy to send it for the cost of shipping, it didn’t fit either and without a match, I pulled it.

I knew something was missing... the bo'c has not been here in over a year. :eek:
My crap is overflowing... time to share. :innocent:
All that to say "put me on the list please" :thumb:

On @bwilli88’s front porch in PA - that’s outer space as far as us westerners are concerned.

Calling all Crapateers,
The Box 'O Crap has been received by the last volunteer on the list. If you want to play the game it is time to sign up! For the $21 to ship it to the next participant every visit brings a bunch of new items for players to pick through and keep. Probably the best value grab box in the cycling world. Please step up and be recognized. Smiles, MH

What usually happens when the crap has run its course...? Sent to next year's cripemeister?

I had been debating about getting back in line, so I guess I will to make sure the box keeps moving. Should I just send my address to Rico Very?

At this point it is likely best, but I can update the posting at #249 to reflect that you are on the list. Thanks for stepping up! Smiles, MH

Mad Honk 07-31-21 07:43 PM

jdawg,
It is my intention that it keeps moving along. Should it stall, I will ask that it be returned to me until a new member steps up. Smiles, MH

Reco Very 08-10-21 11:55 AM

Ok, I've been a little slow this time, but the bo'c is moving. I will be shipping today. Pompiere be ready to receive some crap...tastic stuff. :thumb:

Reco Very 08-10-21 11:57 AM

Almost forgot the pic of my take.. :D

That makes perfect sense!

Pompiere 08-17-21 03:08 PM

I received the package from Reco Very last thursday and took some time over the weekend to sort through it. The Box O' Crap is now ready to go to the next recipient, but I don't know who that is. I can hold the box here for a while until someone steps up.

I forgot to take an unveiling picture, but here is my take:

Bump for new crap volunteers. MH

ascherer 08-17-21 08:32 PM

I have to pause for a bit before I can get back in line. We bought a second house in the Hudson Valley which is being remodeled, and half my crap is there. Until the dust settles I'll be a voyeuristic lurker.

seedsbelize 08-18-21 04:49 PM

Just the other day I was wondering if the BOC was still a thing.

Mad Honk 08-18-21 05:46 PM

I am assuming you want to be put on the list??? You can move to the front of the line right now. Smiles, MH

Mad Honk 08-26-21 06:56 PM

Pompiere,
It appears we have reached a point where there are no Crapateers stepping up to receive the Box O' Crap. It is unfortunate but it is where we are. I can only ask that you send the box to me for keeping and some refurbishing before it begins it's travels again. I will do the repairs to the box and clean the contents as is possible and prepare it for a renewed beginning when we have a few folks who step up. Thanks to all of the Crapsters who have participated thus far and hoping we have more who come forward in a short time. Smiles, MH

I have to work all weekend, so I'll send it out Monday unless someone comes forward. Thanks for taking charge.

I'll give the BOC another go. I've had it twice before and was able to both take and give some interesting items. If Mad Honk shall honor me with another pull of the lever, I'll PM you my details, Pompiere .
