Hi y'all,

Just checking in to see if the BoC was still moving. Any updates?

Tom,
I fear for the postal workers who have had to lift the Exalted Box O' Crap, and hope they have not been seriously hurt in the transport of the BOC. I also suspect the excessive weight of the BOC has prevented more than one flight of the postal service from flying. Smiles, MH

Hello! The box is on it's way, tracking say it'll arrive 7/25.

O Mighty Master of Crap, the bounty is likely to land in the Big CrApple whilst I frolick on a northern shore. I beseech you to reposition my receipt of same, and remain eternally indebted.

Does the box contain any frames in my size? because i need one of those before I can use/swap any crap in the box.

Well Science guy,
It would help if I knew what size you need. I have two mid eighties Treks that will be leaving MH's stable this year due to his shrinking stature. 58cm and 57cm are just a bit too tall for the boys to fit comfortably over. Both are going to need repaints and MH is in a quandry as to whether to powder coat them at Pro Kote Indy before letting them leave or leave with some smoke damage in "as is" condition. Those 770s and the 760 (or was it a 670?) were great rides back when I could fit over them. Anyway some size information might help, and the co-op might have something appropriate for ya. Smiles, MH

Well have to pack it in a different type of box:

Box arrived. Digging the new clear plastic cover:

https://cimg6.ibsrv.net/gimg/bikefor...d94c5eb863.jpg

As usual, it was filled with some useful stuff, barely useful stuff, and some truly crappy stuff. I've had the box hit my front porch maybe a half dozen times now, this is my lightest haul yet , as it just didn't have much I needed or wanted in it this time.

Can't have too many headset washers...

Box is on it's way to @natterberry

gugie 08-05-20 01:41 PM

Been awhile, @natterberry, did the box cave in your porch?

natterberry 08-05-20 02:32 PM

Ill have an update this evening!

My father happened to be at my house when it arrived Saturday afternoon.

Nic, the mailman is here. I think you have a package, it looks really heavy.

natterberry 08-05-20 08:43 PM

The reveal:

Nothing in the box actually met my particular crap needs at this time. Packed it up, on its way to @aceves.

The new internal structure really made this easier to handle than before.

USAZorro 08-11-20 03:41 PM

Bumped from page 5. Time is drawing near, but who knows how affected USPS shipping times are going to be affected?

natterberry 08-11-20 04:23 PM

Currently somewhere between Illinois and California.

aceves 08-11-20 09:14 PM

Hi everyone,

I just checked USPS tracking and it states that the package is arriving late, but it is still on its way to its destination. :notamused: I will update you all when it gets to me.

ascherer 08-11-20 09:18 PM

I've been waiting for a package from Universal Cycles that was last seen in Portland on 7/25. Hopefully we'll have better luck.

xiaoman1 08-13-20 09:04 PM

BOC Folks,
I am not in on the BOC club but can speak to shipping which is now super slow thanks to all the cutbacks that the postal service is enduring....I was waiting for a PKG from Bakersfield to L.A. which is about 1-1/2 hours away 112miles to be exact......over 3 weeks to get here, I could have biked there and back sooner.:giver:
Oh well, I hope it gets to the next victim err person soon. :D

Waiting for the delivery of 3 sets of flat bar SL770 shifters and some BL770 brake levers from the customs in the US from Netherlands, been about 3 or more weeks.

the sci guy 08-14-20 09:38 AM

master of crap, please add me to the craplist. I got some prospects finally.

RichSPK 08-16-20 10:05 AM

My bank suggested I come into a branch for my new debit card because the mail is so slow right now.
