Nice. They're a near perfect match for the Zefal classic bottle cage I just got, and go with the Brooks honey saddle & grips on my '74 Super Tourer

The box of crap was good to me, and I to it. I cleaned out some items that were broken, as reported by the sci guy. I filled 'er back up to the brim (well, past the brim to be honest), and the USPS will have it on their truck today. I wasn't sure to whom to send this next, and Pompiere had PM'd me his address, so it's headed his way.

The wonderful crap as I found it:



This is some of the crap I will be able to put to use:



I was too much in a hurry to put this piece of crap in service that it made it directly onto our trainer bike before I snapped a pic. So here's that:



Whomever put that RD-MC20 in there, I appreciate you. I cleaned it up and it's running really nice on this 7-speed freewheel.

With six months of respite from the box of crap and crapmaster duties, I think I am finally ready to participate in this round, if the @Chr0m0ly sees fit to add me to the list.

Not sure if anyone else expressed interest above me, but I will forward my address. If I am jumping ahead of anyone, please let me know.

Everyone stay safe. Chris

I believe I planted those hubs. Good to know that they'll see the light of day.

Well the BOC left Ohio on the 11th and has been bouncing around. It is apparently in Dubuque as of this morning, so I assume it will arrive tomorrow. Fingers crossed...

With the holiday week, I have not had time to get to the box yet, but should be able to get to it Saturday. Happy Holidays everyone! Merry Christmas!

Here is the reveal:

Untitled by Christopher Andress, on Flickr

Unfortunately I did not find any treasure this round. There were a few items I would like to know what they are, but taking pics would violate the rules, so I will just wait until someone pulls it out of the box. I did get a few items into the box though.

Hi there shadoman. Chr0m0ly has been MIA for a while. I was the last crapmaster, so just to help facilitate, I don't think there is anyone after Mad Honk, so why don't you send him your address to be the next victim after he is done. And I think you are lucky, because he has some pretty good crap I understand!

Everyone,

I will try to help facilitate until we hear from Chr0m0ly. His last activity was in the middle of November, so I am guessing life may have taken an unexpected turn. Hopefully he is doing well. I can't update the first post however, so will try go keep track of where we are.

Thanks - Chris

Special wishes today for ChrOmOly for a speedy return to BF. Hoping to get the Crapmaster back here in good shape and healthy. I received the Exalted "Box 'O Crap" about ten AM this morning from my postmistress who hand delivered it to my front door.
I think I will do some small repairs to the liner and then spend New Years day sorting through the 35 pounds of crap. I will do some house-cleaning of the crap to check for items unfit for use and then re-stuff the BOC for it's next recipient. Looks like my holiday week-end just got a lot fuller. Smiles, MH

BOC as it arrived, in what appears to be hermetically sealed condition from clear packing tape. Maybe this is stronger than some of the abuse the BOC gets from the postal service. And they must be getting better because I wasn't expecting it until mid week.

The reveal as it came into the shop.

Well folks,
The box really was full of crap this time. I couldn't see much that I wanted except a tool that I already have a new one in the works for me. However, I have removed a few duplicates and likely should have culled out a bit more. I found just enough room to fit in a few slightly more desirable items, but not enough room for some crap still here that needs to leave the shop. Here is my take from this go round:

most of this is broken or damaged like the two aluminum arms (one needs a heli-coil and the other is a cut apart right arm to look like a left. That arm would break an ankle if a pedal was attached to it on the left side.)
It is on it's way to St. Louis tomorrow. Watch for a few of my items that I couldn't get into it in the ISO thread. Smiles, MH

Ok Crapsters,
This was supposed to go into the exalted Box 'O Crap this round so I'll put it here first. As always first come, and PM me with all of the information. Cost of shipping, Smiles, MH

a newer version of the Record rear hub. I don't have anything it fits so it is leaving

Chris,
I have requested that Shadoman return the exalted Box O' Crap to me for more house cleaning. If that is unsuitable please let me know, but as I have seen no current interest in receiving the box I suspect a good cleaning and updating is in order, before it resumes it's journey. Please advise by PM thanks, Smiles, MH
